Overview

The amazing story of the charming little cottage that could-and the woman who rescued it

"Tereasa's journey of renovation and resurrection proves that any one of us can make a difference when it comes to preservation." -James Peters, President, Landmarks Illinois

When Tereasa Surratt decided to restore a dilapidated old cabin to its original state AND move it 245 miles from Illinois to Wisconsin, everyone said she was crazy. But she saw potential where others saw junk, and knew that with hope and a hammer there is always a way. To her, this cottage was not just a building, but a precious piece of her childhood and hometown that she was determined to keep alive.

A Very Modest Cottage follows Tereasa's adventures as she rescues this gone-to-ruin cabin and gives it new life as a guest cottage on the edge of the woods overlooking a peaceful lake. Moreover, she achieved her goal on a budget of around $300. Part how-to guide, part scrapbook, and completely inspiring, this special memoir shows how even the simplest architecture can have a powerful emotional affect...and that when you roll up your sleeves and work to make a dream come true, anything is possible.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Advertising creative director Surratt recounts her odyssey to restore an old tourist cabin from her childhood hometown. She charmingly recounts the history and her amusing remodeling adventure alongside lovely photographs; however, there is little helpful how-to information. If you want encouragement for a similar project, this will make you smile.
