Many thanks to my neighbor for helping us move it in! It is sooooo big. I can’t wait to add the top room in between the two porches. kind of modeled it after this one.

Knowing I need to add some modern colorful design elements to my white/tan/black/brown scheme I have going…I asked my friend Amanda for input.

I love making someone else’s trash my treasure!
