Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

Summer Project 2011 Begins

We've been very BUSY here at Mimi's Cottage this week.


Buying wood...



Digging footings...


Buying more wood...



Painting every single stick of wood...


Two coats, primer and finish...


We're doing all this so that we can have a little shade.
I'll show you the finished project next week.

Pergola? Can't wait to see it all finished. We're thinking of building one off our barn.
