you make me ... feel like i'm living a ... lake house dream

i'm putting what i want out into the world, and that's the secret to getting it right?

i'm on a real lakehouse kick.  it's seems like the perfect locale to celebrate the autumnalness of it all, and i just can't imagine a place much chiller than hanging by a peaceful non-moving water hole.

this before and after in the last country living blew me away.  the family bought a 500 square foot crapper, and renovated it into this gem of a hangout.  their primary residence is close by, but just far enough that it was a drag to have to pack up everything they needed for a day at the lake each time they wanted to enjoy outdoors.  so they purchased the property for a steal, and use it as storage for their toys, and the occasional bunk house when they're having too much fun to make it back to their crib. 



my dream lake house looks a lot like this action

Loved that story--especially the notion that a family of SIX can hang comfortably in 500 square feet. So un-American. So good.

Great round up, too!

dammit I want a lakehouse too. I feel like I would get really themey and weird with my vacation home. Like maybe I would turn Bailey the pug into wallpaper...

A place so perfect I'm speechless ... I'd love to fill it with my 1940's quirkiness.
