We are fortunate to have a lake cottage in Northern Indiana, where we spend much of the summer.  We purchased the cottage in 2006 because we loved the location on the lake. 
The house left much to be desired.

Each year, we have completed a project here and there, but nothing significant.
After a rough winter in early 2010, we were forced to replace the roof and much of the inside on a tight budget.
We will share some of the challenges of owning a small fishing shack that has been added on, fixed up and finally renovated.  But there are still many projects to be done!
