Coxs gets a make over

With the summer winding down and coming to an end, we decided to take advantage of the fact that a few of the cabins were empty and decided that we would do a DIY makeover. We are not professionals by any means, so we figured we would just do simple things that we could accomplish on our own, if we needed help we could always ask for it later.

The small kitchens that consist of a sink, fridge and a microwave were a bit out dated. We simply replaced the old formica countertops with a new formica color and texture. We then replaced the old sink and appliances. Each cabin has a great view of the pond as they all circle around it. The back patios are all covered and it is nice to sit outside and watch the ducks or other campers in their kayaks and such. The weather is not always the greatest and sometimes its too hot to enjoy the view from outside, so we figured we would install some nice new doors. We went with top grade weather proof fiberglass exterior french doors with top to bottom windows and the blinds that are inside. This way campers can view the pond at anytime, or easily close the blinds for privacy.

Coxs’ is open year round so we decided to upgrade the heating and cooling as well. From there we attempted to replace some of the tile in each cabin. The cabins consist mainly of wood floors, but the bathrooms are tile and so is the back splashes in the kitchen. We ripped out the old, went in with hardi board and replaced the old ceramic tile with new slate. It really completes the look of the cabins.

Last but not least, the easiest make over you can do is paint. Each cabin got its own color theme to make them not so bland and cookie cutterish. We stuck with a modern look of earth tones and neutral colors. Overall we invested about $1500.00 in each cabin, but the new look is awesome and should definitely make the campers feel more at home each night. Come on out and take a look at our new look!
