Charming, isn’t it? Tereasa Surratt’s new book, out this week, chronicles her process of relocating + restoring a small cottage on a budget of $300. It turned out pretty great: check out the accompanying website for more info, including video.
Update: I’ve now had a chance to read Tereasa’s book. It’s super charming and soooo inspiring! Full of photos, how-to’s, as well as the history of her little cottage. I’m also pleased to report that the $300 budget was for the furnishing of the cabin, not the entire refurbishment. It’s left me feeling that I could in fact handle some sort of home renovation project myself someday. (As luck would have it, the cottage’s location is pretty close to my in-laws summer home. May have to do a drive by ….)
