Carmel-By-The-Sea: Windamere is a lovely cottage. The Shingle thatch is the technique of using cedar shingles to recreate the texture and look of a reed-thatched roof. This is just so charming. A little dream cottage.
There once was an old bird, who lived in a shoe. Nice easy way to use old shoes or boots, just nail it to a tree! Try to pick a show that is waterproofed in the heal or make it waterproof; the roof over the shoe helps.
