Fairview Cottage

January 19th, 2018

I am in the process of building my next home and decided in the interim to buy a little house in downtown Bountiful. I wanted to take on one of the challenges that I hear from so many of you: how can I make a big impact with small affordable changes. I selected a well built home with simple clean straight lines. Welcome to my new home Fairview Cottage!

Here is the before:
Fairview Cottage Exterior
I started by painting the exterior of the home, the carport, and the garage SherwinWilliams Shell White. I added shutters the length of the door and painted all exterior doors and trim SherwinWilliams Peppercorn. I found the planters while I was in California at one of my favorite garden stores.

Fairview Cottage Details
If you’ve followed my work you’ll know that a cupola and a weathervane a top each of my homes is one of my signature details.

One of the features I quite liked about the home was the carport that could be utilized as a porte-cochere. I love the idea that you can be dropped off and unload your belonging and then head into the garage. I added detail to the ceiling of the porte-cochere to help customize the exterior of the home.

Here is a peak at the backyard. There is a covered patio off the garage and I’ll share more of this space once spring rolls around and I can start using it. Behind the back fence I created a large fenced area where my dog Bernard can run and play.
