  1. We have been following your blog and we can't wait to see the whole finished product. We have renovated a few cottages like this, they are great fun to design, and we love the challenge. But do you want some Queenslander home renovation design tips? because we've done a fair few with good results, check it out.

  2. So I'm curious, did the reno cottage get finished (and are there complete pics) and most of all, did you stay within the $10k budget??
