The original lay out always called for a little guesthouse since Cold Comfort only had one bedroom.  So we decided to build Whimsey to allow us to have guests most especially Sister who spends the summers and holidays with us. 

Whereas Cold Comfort and the farm buildings were all Black and white, Whimsey interiors were lime green and turquoise matching the Nicholson tartan. I was also determined to cut all that color with a painted wood floor, white of course.  Looking back, I realize that white as a wood floor color is not great at a farm due to the dirt you gain as you work all day.

Country Living Magazine shot 2 stories on Whimsey and we made the cover for their February 2005 issue!  This issue also showed my editor Rebecca Thienes and I shopping and restoring lots of junk.
