Outside finished. Now for the inside! Living and kitchen are one big room, EVERY THING in there was from Craig's list, Habitat Restore, or I already had.
Everything in this living space I already had, except for the rug, gift from my Mom, from her house.
Antique stove was free, I put an electric fire logs in it and I made the surround all by myself!
Kitchen cabinets are bathroom vanity, we made them higher with a raiser, the counter top was brand new both from Craig's list (different people) and the sink and faucet were from yet another guy total spent, $110 the upper cabinet was free.

    I'm afraid that if I had a retreat as beautiful as yours, I might just move out there permanently! Beautiful job, many kudos on your transformation!!
