DREAM: “My husband and I had a small pond built several years ago on our farm. I have always wanted a small building by it so we and our family would have a place to stay.”

SUMMARY: “After I retired in 2009, I decided it was time to start our project. We talked to Mark McCollom at Coach House and he looked over our ideas and gave us a price quote. On July 13, 2009 at 7:10 a.m. our Coach House arrived and by 2:30 p.m. it was standing.

It was a 20′ x 30′ building which included a 6′ porch on the front. We divided the building in half – one side for a small kitchen/living room area, with a wood burning fireplace. The other half for a bedroom, small closet and a bath. There is a hook up in the bath for a stackable washer & dryer. And we have electric baseboard heat for cold weather.

Our son did our wiring, plumbing, carpenter work and tiled the floors and shower.  My husband and I were the clean-up crew and painters.

Since it’s been finished, I have hosted a church women’s group of twelve for a meeting and we had several wiener roasts and sleepovers with our granddaughters. We “love” our pond house!”
