The decision.

There is serious talk around here of renovations.
Real ones... offering real solutions to real tiny house problems.
This is very exciting.

To date all we have done here was "polish a turd" so we could either 
handle living here until we have the cash to re build OR sell it on fast to a developer (the only person that would actually consider buying it, seriously it is that bad!) OR rent it out and keep it as an investment.

Truth is we cant handle the lack of space and the crappy layout any more, the boys are getting bigger and louder and needing more space.

 So we looked to rent but could not find anything.

Rebuilding is not in the foreseeable future.

 We have been looking for a new house to buy and in exhaustion have come to this conclusion... 

Whatever we can afford to buy would be the same size and condition as this and needing renovation anyway, so we would be in exactly the same position only with one massive downfall.

We'd lose this
The reason we bought this house in the first place.

So we are staying put and renovating in two stages.
The cottage will be extended sideways and the floor plan re worked and will include LOTS of new storage space... sigh, then in a few years we will finish with a second story addition to capture the best of the views.

I can hardly contain my excitement.

Assuming everything goes according to plan we should be starting in spring.
