Junk Chic Cottage #4

Hello everyone.  

After the house was only on the market for 2 days we had our first showing and they bought the house.  

We are so lucky to have the first person through  buy this sweet home..

This is bitter sweet for me.  I have loved JCC #3.  I always wanted the cottage style home and we found it with this sweet place.

With building a garage, renovations to the basement we made this sweet tiny home pretty and cozy. 


I just loved this neighborhood too.

I will miss this sweet home.


With JCC#3 selling so quickly that left us to find our next place this weekend.  

I had found a cute cottage style home a few weeks ago and made a great connection the minute I stepped inside.  

I really thought it would sell before we got ours sold.

It did not so we went in and made an offer and with a few back and forth's on the contract we agreed and now will be owning this sweet home in a month.


JCC#4 cottage style home. 

This one is small like JCC #3 and no basement. 

It does have a pull down steps to a very large storage area in the attic.

I see some cute new flower boxes under those windows and some new flowers in the beds.

This is the back of the home.  They had a hot tub on the deck. 
I am happy the hook ups are all there.  There might be a hot tub in our future!!
We will be putting a deck on this back part of the home.

It has a beautiful backyard space.  Buddy needs a backyard so he will love this one.

This is where we will be doing a big remake.  This one car garage is not going to cut it with having a very tiny house. 

So we are going to be putting up a 2.5 car garage with a 8 foot bump out in the back of the garage to make Terry a Fire Man Cave at the back of this garage for all his fireman collectibles etc. 

Since the garage door is brand new we think we will do a double garage with another similar door to make good use of the one that is new.



All the floors have been re done and are original to the house.  
I love that so much!!! 
The oak trim and base molding are beautiful in this house including the crown molding through out this house.

 I cannot wait to paint the walls and add my decor to this room. 

I can see my slipcovered furniture and Terry leather chair plus pretty vintage armoire with TV making this room pretty and cozy.

The Master Bedroom is not much larger than the one we have now. 

We have a king sleep number bed that we have had for years and just love.  


Unfortunately it will not fit in this small of a master. 

We will be getting a new queen bed that will fit much better.  My daughter is excited I will be passing my King sleep number bed onto them. 

I see a pretty paint color and great area rug and some pretty drapes to make this room cozy.

This is the other bedroom that will be transformed into my office and Terry's office space and hopefully a guest room bed.

This is the fully renovated kitchen.  It has all new white shaker cabinets with the soft close doors and drawers. 
Don't you love those!!! 
It is the little things like this that make me happy.  It has black granite counters that will stay. 

I am thinking a new bridge farmhouse sink and faucet and my small chandelier  over the sink along with a pretty window feature.

This refrigerator is awkward and sticks out in the room. 

We are going to get a french door refrigerator that is counter length and will not stick out in this room so much.

I will be putting a new floor in the kitchen too.

This is the back area of the kitchen that they used as a "mud room". 
Terry is going to cut down my old german pantry from our kitchen now and fit it into this space.

I will have a large storage pantry once again.

This bathroom!!!!!  It will be completely re done.  New tub, shower ,shower doors gone,  vanity, floors. 

She will be pretty again and more up to date. 

I hope I can find another vintage dresser to make the vanity in this bathroom.


So good bye sweet JCC #3.  We will miss you.

Hello JCC#4.  
Adding some window boxes and bring my flowers to add some color to this sweet cottage in the front.

I will post the before and after's of all the rooms in this little cottage home as we begin the changes.

We are excited to have Terry moving on with his new job and we will enjoy getting JCC#4 prettied up and cozy for us to live.

Stay tuned.
Things will be crazy for me in the next month as we begin to pack and get ready for the move.

We will probably be putting all the garage things in a pod for storage until the new garage is built.

I cannot wait to get in and clean and paint and start to make this sweet place our own.

Thank you for all the prayers and good wishes.  We are beyond happy our home sold so quickly and that we were able to find another cottage style home. 
I have embraced living small and just love it.
Hugs,
Kris

  14. This is just all so amazing, Chris! I can't believe how quickly you sold your home AND found the perfect new one. I agree that your current home is beautiful - but so is your new home. And I can definitely envision the changes you already have in mind for it. The front of that home will be so charming with window boxes and flowers. Congratulations!

    I sense your excitement and pray all goes smoothly with making this your home and that Terry will do wonderful with his new job.

  20. It is YOU, Kris!!! I was a bit concerned when you said no basement but I can see why this house stole your heart. Now for the moving process. And, if you wanted the work you could always remove the drywall and vault the ceiling to make the place look even larger and maybe even put a loft in there....just a thought...and something for Terry to do in his spare time...bwhahahhaha.

    Can't wait to see it all done and you KNOW you are going to paint that woodwork...am I right?!

    Have a great day-off to work and I get to stage a home today for one of the new guys. xo Diana

  22. Wow, things are moving right along! I had no doubt that JCC#3 would sell quickly. You and Terry had already done all the hard work. Your new home will be lovely and have your personal stamp on it. Terry's too! Buddy will have new smells to explore in his new backyard. You know we will all be following along with your changes to JCC#4. xoxo

  23. Wow, congratulations on the quick sale of JCC3 and finding JCC4 so quickly! She definitely has your name written all over it. Looking forward to it's transformation! This must be feeling a bit de ja vu (garage, deck, appliances, paint?)

  24. Congratulations on the sale! Praise the Lord for the way He answered our prayers. GIRL...I am so excited for you! I know that you are biting at the bits to get started on your new home. It will be beautiful there is no doubt in my mind. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

You and Terry are truly hard working people. Getting everything fixed up like you want it and then do it again. :) Blessings and all the luck in the world. xoxo,love, Susie

  31. Dearest Kris! It is a darling cottage! Somehow I think this one will be your best Junk Cottage yet. I know the packing and moving will be exhausting before your work even begins there but I also know it will be beautiful each step of the way. How could it not be with you two darling people living in it! It is going to be loved on so much. And we'll get to follow along with each project. Thank goodness for a quick sale and the new owners of your house are so lucky. I'm sure they were smitten not only with the charm but also with the good vibes and loving spirit as soon as they walked in the door.

    You take care, both of you!

    Love and prayers,
    Dewena

  32. So excited for you Kris! I KNEW JCC#3 would sell right away... who could not just love it to pieces???? And so glad JCC#4 was still there just waiting for you! It is very cute and so "you"... and I love it already. The kitchen looks a little bigger as does the living room too? Hard to tell but it does look a little bigger. And I was immediately wondering "where is Terry going to have his fireman cave?" when you said no basement! Glad he'll get his room off of the garage. Glad you got this at the beginning of summer so that by Fall, hopefully, the major changes will be done and in place! I just knew you needed something to do now that JCC#3 was all fixed up! :-) hugs... Marilyn

  33. Yay Kris, that is great news! Very excited to watch as you change JCC #4 into yours. I have good news as well - our home also sold in the first three days of being on the market! Woohoo! Cannot wait to see you transform the new cottage. I am unpacking and paring down more. You have the advantage of already being in a small home. So excited for you!

  36. Well, of course JCC#3 sold immediately. I knew somebody would snatch it right up. You and Terry did such a great job in upgrading and making that home special. Congratulations! And now on to JCC#4. What a charming cottage. It's going to be a delight to see you put your own creative touches on that sweet place, Kris. So happy for you and Terry. Hugs, Nancy

I know this is probably bad timing but I finally got my act together and Joe went to the post office to mail off a package to you today..... Just a little something that I made to show my appreciation for those lovely carrots that you were so kind enough to send to me...You should get it in a few days.....

  39. WOW.. things happened so fast. I am happy about that!
    I like the window in the new house.
    It looks like a lot of established plants too. What is the pink one in the photo, peony?

  40. Congrats on the quick sale and the #4 is adorable...love the floors!!! I know you and Terry will truly make that house an amazing home!!! Good luck on the move!

  41. Everything fell into place so nicely Kris, which just goes to show you it is meant to be. Your new place has your name written all over it! It’s adorable, and I love the color of the siding and of course the floors are beautiful. The one thing that HAS to go (and I know you agree), is that teeny tiny window box! Now work your magic and put a proper one there and it alone will transform the front of the house (but I know you will do LOTS more).

  42. I'm so happy to read that Terry has found a new job, and that you'll be moving back to an area you love. It was fun watching you transform #3, and it must be bittersweet after the hard work you put into it. I will be looking forward to the "Kris touch" in #4! Best of luck to you and Terry!

  43. Oh Kris, this is all coming together so well for you guys. I love your new cottage and I know you will have so much fun putting your personality on it. so cute! Be Blessed! xo Deb

  44. Am so happy and excited for you. What perfect timing on both homes! Am so anxious to see the transformation into #4. I know it will be so "you".

  45. What wonderful news. When you watch these House Hunter shows the folks walk in and want the house to be exactly like the one they dreamed of. I'm like you. I think good bones and then remodel into my dream house. Can't wait to see what you come up with.

  46. What a sweet house, Kris, and the garden looks so nice too.
    Hope you will find "your spirit" there!

  47. I am so happy for you. I had no doubt your house would sell quickly and am especially happy for you to have found the new cottage still available when you were ready to purchase. Fingers crossed that everything continues to fall into place and your transition is all very smooth. Looking forward to seeing the changes and décor decisions you will be making.

  48. It will be beautiful! Love all your little touches. Not sure I could go down to a queen bed. We are downsizing and Will have a much smaller bedroom too. I'm going to look for a metal king bed so it takes up less space visually than our wood one. Can't wait to see all your changes!

  49. It's darling. That kitchens was made for you! Have fun. Prayers for you move.

  51. Gosh, Kris I can't keep up with the changes. I didn't know he already found a new job and you're moving so quickly! Cute new cottage that will look cuter with your stamp on it. Good luck with the updates and move.

  52. Kris I didn't think I was away from blogging THAT long but apparently I have been! Wow - I don't know how you do it! You just got your little cottage the way you liked it and now you're off and getting ready to do it all again! So glad it sold quickly and you found #4 just where/when you needed it. Best of luck to you with everything!

  53. I think your new found cottage is so nice. As soon as you put your touches on it I am sure it will be magazine worthy. You are talented and after your touch the transformation will show a warm and cozy cottage. Blessings on your new home.
