Work has been done inside due to the rainy wet weather that we've been having so inside has started & low & behold many constructional 'things' have been revealed. :-0
The biggie was the large kitchen window had no header on top of it. How did that wall hold up the second story with all the weight on it?!! Oh wait,... a 2" x 4" at one end to hold the second story up.
This is where the fridge, counter, stove, overhead microwave, upper & lower cupboards will be installed. Where the small window on the left(mostly hidden by the support beam)is will be removed & the room extended & at the end of the kitchen will have a bay seating window.
On the other side it will connect the addition to the house. The sewing room will be on the other side of this wall.
Where the door is will be part of the main foyer in the new wing.
The room framed out on the right will be the pantry, with a larger window for my winter herb garden.
How cool having two staircases to the basement!
Let's go upstairs...
Bill & I are both glad that all these things are being looked after & we didn't have any mishaps with them...the Hurricane Arthur showed us the power of the wind & rain so we're just bracing for the future & the intensity of the weather.
The Wet Weather
What a colour place this is becoming, so cottage like as you stroll around the grounds.
Tonight to picked a bunch of thyme & parsley to put in the beef stew I made for my supper & topped it with parsley GF dumplings. Mmmmm so good.
I was mowing the other day & had a horrible black fly bite me just under my sunglasses. It was going to rain again so I knew I had to use the push mower before the growth got too thick to push the mower over. My fitbit again published that I rode a 'outdoor bike' for 42 minutes, LOL that's how had it is to push a gas mower on a hill that reminds me of a football pit. The bite is not itchy yet...I carry the AfterBite with me as the black flies are loving me this year.
And tomorrow is another mowing day on the big green tractors. The big one is here at the cottage with me & the smaller one is at that mucky yard in Hardwicke. I think I'm going to spray myself with an 'Ode to Deet' perfume tomorrow!
Thanks for the visit & I hope your yard work is going great for you.
A saw a sign that really makes me think of the month of June here in northern New Brunswick~~~
The lawn has to be mowed every six days.
I fought the lawn ~ And the lawn won.
Have a great weekend!
