This little house, as cute as it was, had acquired over the years a lot of “what were they thinking?” alterations, that needed to be be extracted.
And, since a log cabin addition was planned, someone really needed to give serious thought to coming up with a master plan to ensure that the home was attractive when finished and served the needs of it’s new owners.
The firm that the family hired did none of the above, but they did drain the family’s wallets considerably, and added more “what were they thinking” elements to the home.
I won’t get into details.
It’s too depressing for me.
And, I’d rather not dwell on the negative.
But, I will say this, that this is not an uncommon situation… that I turn down a LOT of work like this… of fixing someone else’s mess.
I could have easily doubled or tripled my workload over the years if I had said “yes” to every request along these lines.
But, this house was so cute, and the family so sweet, and was a place that I drove by often.
I did develop a master plan for the house, but the funds were no longer there to carry them fully out. I did add an old log cabin to their house (that they had purchased) as part of that plan.
And I’d like to share with you some photos of that cabin’s construction over the coming days.
