Happy Thanksgiving 2016

We were expecting to get about 10 inches of snow, but...... Although it snowed and sleeted and was windy most of the day we had no accumulation on the ground. We spent a quiet Thanksgiving Day at our log home with Jimmy joining us for dinner.
Late in the afternoon Mike and I took off to brave the crowds at the Wallmrt Back Friday event, and talk about crowds...WOW! We got what we came for and waited in line for about an hour to check out. It was interesting though.

Making Progress

The cottage has all new wiring and plumbing. The insulation is back to put up the vapor barrier then Sheetrock!

Mike does such a great job wiring!

Our neighbors are nice! He brought us over a bottle of his homemade wine...very good!

Demo On The Cottage

Mike started demo on the cottage tearing out the 'platforms' that were to be the kitchen and bathroom.



Platforms gone...Sheetrock coming off

Mike cut out the concrete floor to lay the sewer pipes properly in the floor.
Then it was time to frame up the new interior walls an place the windows where we wanted them. He ended up moving every window but one. We ended up purchasing a new window for the kitchen and one one for the dining room area.

Clearing the Landscape

We've been busy pulling out overgrown and dead landscaping, things are really opening up
We brought the Bounder down so we would have a place to cook, eat and relax.

A New Adventure

We have been looking a couple of years for a 'just right' piece of land, we finally found it! It is 3.5 acres with lots of mature landscaping. It is overgrown and in very much need of lots of TLC & hard work. There is a semi converted garage on it, very rough. This place has TONS of potential though .... A diamond on the rough.

What a view!
