lighthouse living

Did you know that 976 lighthouses across Canada were recently declared surplus property?
Did you know that since then, I’ve been totally obsessed with the idea of buying a lighthouse and converting it into a cottage?

Think about it. They are in the most beautiful locations. They are all waterfront properties. They all offer the very best views. And they are all architecturally interesting buildings with a ton of history and character.

I think you’d need a brilliant architect. And a fantastic contractor. And probably a bucket of money for the renovation.

But besides all that, what an exciting interior design challenge that would be!

These are just a few of the images I found of ones that have been converted all over the world.
Can you imagine anything better?!?
