Bungalow Renovation by Laurel of SoPo Cottage

Ran into this wonderful bungalow renovation by Laurel of SoPo Cottage.  As you can see by visiting her home renovation blog, she has a passion for restoring old homes.  She started with her own and now is turning her passion into a business!  Who was it that said, “do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life”?

This 1920s bungalow is located in South Portland, Maine was once a 2 bedroom, one bath house but now the attic has been refinished adding two more bedrooms and a bath upstairs; including the master bedroom with great views of the Portland skyline.

It looks like the bungalow was sold in August of this year and is listed on airbnb for rent!

Take a peek!
