we accidentally bought a bungalow
I had completely updated it when I bought it in 2005. No major complaints. But also, no major connection.
It looked identical to everyone else's homes, not only in our neighborhood, but in the majority of the Phoenix metropolitan area. This house was not inspiring other than that it provided a comfortable albeit expensive solution while raising the twins and doing what we did -- work. A lot.

greetings from the porch
I am excited to launch The Whiskey Porch brand and website in the next few days!
One thing we are going to be doing is documenting and sharing our own process of downsizing and renovating our historic bungalow here in Prescott at Juniper Hill Cottage.
We just broke ground on the reno(vation) project this week (although it's been over 2 years in the planning ~ more about that in another post) which is truly coincidental with the launch of this brand. But really they go hand-in-hand because it's through our own journey that we've come to learn that we really can reduce the size and complexity of our lifestyle. And love everything about it!
How ironic and fitting is it that the launch of both projects should coincide like this?
We plan to produce videos and blog posts every couple of weeks on the transformation of this 1924 beauty - bringing it into the 21st century in a big way, and bringing it back to it's former glory at the same time.
Hello! I'm Miriam and this is the story of our tiny historic cottage and it's complete renovation.
