Runs in the Family

New house update. We now have a beautiful Dutch door leading to the kitchen–such a friendly way to enter a house. The stone pathway and stairs will be finished by the end of the day–so exciting. I love a kitchen entry, don’t you. Before the renovation there was no back entry to the house–just a small ugly window. What a difference a few days can make. I now have proof that this ‘house thing’ of mine definitely runs in the family. My brother is also building a house at Big Bay Lake in Mississippi. What do you think?

Back entry before–no door

Dutch Door Kitchen entry–love it!

Barn entry to Big Bay Lake–charming structure and planters

New porch overlooking the lake

Foundation going in–boat house to the right

Sunset view over Big Bay Lake–stunning

More later!

    Lissy your brothers place is beautiful also. Love that barn, planters and sliding barn doors .
    Also, wanted to tell you love the paint color on your new dutch door. Also, the stone around the door is fabulous!

    Just realized that is not stone around your dutch door. It is wood bark. Am I right? Looks great and I love it!!!

    Love, love, love the dutch door entrance! And the view from your brother’s home is fabulous! Can’t wait to see the finished products!!!

  5. Love what you have done! It is amazing (pardon me) what you can do with fabulous taste! I have come later to your blog. Is your house on a lake as well?

    • Cindy, Thank you so very much! The house has a mountain view and is golf cart and walking distance to the lake.
      I will be posting more on the view later. We need to clear because the house was not maintained for a while.
      Check the old post under the ‘Mountain house’ sections.
