Our new lake-front restoration project! August 4, 2014
Having grown up in Northern California, we spent summers at Lake Tahoe, thanks to our parents. In fact, since I could drive as a teenager, I would alternate weeks at home and at the cabin, with my dear younger sister and brother.
I had two jobs. Feeding my younger sibs and getting a tan. I had Hamburger Helper figured out. Getting the tan was more time consuming!
The re-build happened shortly after my mom passed away and it gave all of us something to focus on. It was an especially great diversion for my dad and he enjoyed many good times there, before he passed away three years ago.
Fast forward to the present and it’s the five siblings, trying to share and maintain this place, that was supposed to be a family gathering spot. Even though my parents had the best intentions, the five of us are still trying to figure out how to share our toys. It’s much more challenging than you’d think.
The family home has turned into a time-share, with each of us having our assigned weeks, while trying to figure out who fixes the broken window or replaces the napkins. It should be simple, but it’s not.
So, Mr. Wonderful and I gathered up our spare change. We looked under every sofa cushion and came up with just enough to buy a lake side fixer.
I’ll wait to share the interior with you. This is a before and after paradise!
If I am ever out of before and after furniture projects at the shop to share with you, there is a life time supply of before an after’s to share with you from Tahoe!
We call the place “B, B, B & B”, (Barbara and Bob’s Bed & Breakfast), because we will be renting the place out frequently, once restored to its full potential! Take note: If you need a home, that sleeps about ten, with 3 fireplaces, 3 baths, across the street from the beach, with water toys and a buoy, we’ll be talking!
I know, I know. Life was full of so much free time after opening the shop! We needed more to do! Stay tuned, as we do our thing!
