My Haven-Vacation Boat House Makeover (Sneak Preview) - The Kim Six Fix

My Haven-Vacation Boat House Makeover (Sneak Preview)

I am so excited.

In less than 24 hours, the Haven Conference will officially begin.  I am sitting in my hotel room the night before but I am so thrilled with my latest project, I just *HAD* to give you a sneak preview, even though I don't have time to write up a whole post.

Before coming to Atlanta, I stopped at my parent's house and helped them totally makeover their boat house.  (Yes, I do DIY projects as a 'vacation.' What can I say?)

They recently built their dream house on a large plot of lakefront property and needed to update the outdated old boat house/fishing cottage so that they looked like they belonged together.

Here is their new house:
And this was the boat house right next door:
A minty green 1975 cinderblock monstrosity.  Clearly they aren't the same style and don't feel like they belong together.  My parents got a head start demoing the un-permitted, unsafe front porch and back room additions. 

So here is what it looked like when I first arrived last week:

And here it what it looks like TODAY! 

Isn't that fantastic?
Total cost of that makeover?  Under $100!  CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT?! 100 BUCKS?!

Paint and some trim boards totally transform the non-descript little boat house so that it matches the real house.   From the water, it no longer likes there are two separate houses on the property.  It is clearly the actual house and it's boat house:
(And just wait until I show you the changes we have in store for the front door!) 

I promise I will share all the nitty gritty details of the big renovation in the next few weeks.. but right now I have to get some sleep, since tomorrow is Haven!
