From Carriage House to Cabana....

In 1995 we converted our Carriage house into a classroom for homeschooling... after the boys graduated it became our Cabana!

    I love everything about this! I'd rather be here than in a classrooom any day :) I'm intrigued by this makeover, what did you do?

    Thank you, Miriam. We did it all - we took it from a "raw space" to a finished room(s). We put in the kitchenette, sleeping loft, finished the floors, replaced and added windows etc. When it was a classroom it looked like a classroom (desks, bulletin boards, shelving etc.) and now it's a cute place for guests to change and relax!
