Working On A Project

Attached Pergola - To create a semi-private, outdoor seating area close to home, this Pergola extends from the house side with attached lattice panels.:

I like this pergola for out the french doors, it creates privacy but allows air flow on those hot days in northern Michigan!

Working on a screen door to keep the flies out. I like this idea. 

If ever a cottage had a picture-perfect porch, it's this sweet stunner.:

Yes, I know this is the front view of a house but I want it to be the south side of my garage creating a covered walkway into the mudroom at one end.

Tiny kitchen in the unit, liking the stainless apartment size appliances, adds some pizzazz. 
House of Turquoise: Steinberg Custom Designs:

Maple counter tops to go with the stainless. 

Peek-a-boo I see blue! Painting the screen door a wink of a blue hue on the mudroom door. 
tiny stairs:

Tiny stairs to allow access to the garage studio up under the dormer.

I want the bedroom to be all bed. 

No room for a fireplace in the apartment or in the budget! But a small wood burning stove is a great alternative. A must have in homes on the water for those damp and chilly days. 

Building a studio apartment behind the shop. 750 sq ft and cozy! These are my ideas that I have saved on pinterest. What do you think?
