Project La Maisonnette du Coteau

• 24 September 2009

 over at Design*Sponge featuring "before" and "after" shots.

Home Tour on Houzz - more images and details about the cottage.

How it all began - the story behind how it all happened and why.

ALL La Maisonnette posts (the real deal, the full story, the project in its entirety--you get the idea!)

Before it became crazy - looking back, we were a bit naive about the project and what it entailed...ignorance is bliss?!

Chipping away, literally - we couldn't bear to cover up any of the cottage's gorgeous stone, but it was a tedious process to remove the plaster.

Sandblasting ancient stone - 4 tons of sand later...

The Town Oven/ La Four Banal...La Maisonnette du Coteau in a previous life

Our daughter attending school in France, her school menu (next year's menu too) and scenes from the playground - she learned a lot and her American accent hit the road.

Kitchen installation part 1 - the kitchen, to me, is the most important part of a home.

Unglamorous side to it all (and it continues here) - a renovation in southern France sounds glamorous, but it's still a big mess until it's all said and done!

Logistics behind purchasing a home in France - it's not easy.

Moving in the furniture - it does not get more creative or complicated than this!

Observations on France, it's culture, and our experience (more here a little later)

You can also reference a magazine article we wrote about our story in Simply the Sweet Life Magazine (summer 2011 issue).  They did an amazing job with the layout and capturing our vision.
