Top 20 Before & Afters of All Time: #5 A-Frame Cottage Renovation

by Grace Bonney

Since our own house has been through some renovations lately (our bathroom, living room, runner and the bedroom coming soon!), I’ve been enjoying reliving so many of your favorite Before & Afters this year. We’re down to our #5 spot on the countdown and it’s a project close to my heart: a rural home in New Hampshire. Old cottages and farmhouses are my favorite spaces to see brought back to life (we live in an old farmhouse from the 1850s), so this one (and all the love that went into keeping the character of the original space) is a personal favorite, too. Enjoy! xo, Grace
