I love it when a plan comes together.

As you can tell I cannot seem to shake this beach house bug, so I am going full force, full blown dream it up until every detail is ironed out. I figure that if we start with building the garage and add a second story to it, only 367 square ft. is all it would need to be. The following is my inspiration for what the garage apartment would look like. This is the Cabot Cove in Kennebunkport, Maine. It consists of 16 Beach cottages that were built in the 50's and renovated in a designer's challenge. 16 designers each had a cottage and a modest budget to work their magic and that they did.

If 367ft. is not enough for a garage we can add a screened in porch. The washer and dryer and can also be hidden in the garage along with all the fishing and beach stuff that seems to come with a beach house. Hope you enjoyed my brain storm for the first part of my Dream Beach House Plan. Heidi

Cabot Cove is one of my favorite places in the world!!!! Each cottage is a dream you never want to wake up from!! Harbor is the closest to the river & furthest removed fromm everyone else.
Everyone must spend a weekend at Cabot Cove.
I think taking your inspiration from them is smary money. A vacation spot needs little sleeping space & more living space but come on...outdoors is where you'll live. Brava idea!!!

I love Cabot Cove too & have been so inspired by the result of the individual cottage renos. You know Heides, you are such a go getter I reckon you'll be able to turn your dream into a reality. Don't forget to invite us all over for the House Warming.
