Galveston Historic Home Tour. I wrote about the rest of the homes on the tour here. This is a yearly event in Galveston, Texas and they always have one restoration in progress on the tour. This is the 1887 Samuel A. and Sallie Cook Cottage.
It is going to become a weekend vacation rental when completed and will probably appear on the home tour again within the next few years.
Right now it needs a "little" work. This is the garage and I believe there might be an apartment over the garage someday.
1900 Storm and recently Hurricane Ike in 2008.
I've always dreamed of buying one of these fixer uppers, but I think this is really a project for someone a lot younger than me. If only I was about 30 years younger!
This is the backyard. It's tiny, but a lot of the old homes have these little yards. There's an alley behind the fence.
I believe this is the original decorative piece for the fireplace that's been temporarily removed.
