What is New?

Making a Boathouse Beautiful

Last late month I gave you a little preview of my parent's boat house makeover that we all worked on during my vacation surrounding Haven:

But now it is finally time for the entire reveal!  First I want to show you just how large the boat house was (it was the only house on the property):  

And here are some of the photos of the demo (the un-permitted, illegal ad-ons were removed.) First the front porch came off:

And we were left with a gaping hole in the roofline (which was eventually replaced with a dormer to mimic the look of the main house):

The back of the boat house was actually worse.  The entire back room's roof was rotten.  Some beams were completely severed.  Yeah.  Not safe:

The boathouse was constructed of solid cinder block.  Talk about a beast to demo:

Once the extra rooms were gone, we were left with a cute little house with a terrible paint job:

We then painted the boathouse with the same color scheme as the main house and trimmed out all the windows with molding (I am going to post a tutorial on how to do it shortly).

What a difference!

A couple more before and afters.  Looking up from the water:
 And remember my post about repairing a cinder block wall? Well there it is!

Now the boat house looks like it always went along with the main house and not that it is 60 years older. Mission accomplished.
Pin It

and at these great parties
