Bayou Beauty: A Southern Cottage Home

A little love and tenderness—and a lot of hard work—turn a dilapidated Creole cottage into a soulful, sustainable retreat.

The new (but old-looking) addition houses the kitchen and dining areas, which feature a working fireplace, including a baking oven on the right, a crane holding a cookpot over the fire and a potager on the left.
