Well, we could not save it any longer as the foundation of cinder blocks were crumbling & the cottage was unsafe. Knowing that our community of Baie-Sainte-Anne had a need for adult independent living in this community, that's how this idea was created.
Bill has always wanted to have an apartment to manage in his retirement, so here it is!
Every Friday I will make a post on the development of the construction of this seven-unit apartment that will also have Bill's office located at the front. We are growing & evolving within this community that we love so much.
I have started doing the first photo by the hydro pole, which should finish with this finished view by mid-fall. Today I was viewing the entry door to order & have not seen it yet. I would like a glass-paneled 3/4 length glass door with the two matching side-lights. Although I'm liking the full side-lights in the photo. Decisions, decisions.
Where we lived in London, it was a triplex & as time & more children were born, we made it into a full house. Our eldest son Donald, & his girlfriend Stephanie, now live in the century homestead.
I'm so glad that hurricane Chris stayed out in the Atlantic but Sable Island & Newfoundland were not as lucky as New Brunswick. Hurricane season stays with us into the fall. Fingers crossed.
Thank you for stopping in to see what has been going on since the demolition. It was a sad day to see my sweet cottage taken down but as the story ends... this one begins!
Have a wonderful safe weekend!
