First we'll pick up where we left off last post, with the Carroll Cottage.
The old steps were removed & the rotten wood replaced with new pressure treated wood for the new porch to attach to.
The boys were just having too much fun.
I was watching that their father didn't take out Lucy the Goose, on his journey with the truck pulling the trailer...with the porch deck on it with the boys weight holding it down! lol
We really must entertain the area with their antics, I know they amuse me! lol
No worries, because it was measured twice then cut once & the stairs were installed. Thank you everyone for this wonderful, new to the cottage installation.
A New - Feral Kitty Cat
It comes in the morning for a feed & in the evening for a feed. It's getting use to me but I cannot get close to it yet.
Hardwicke House Today
I love how its shadoe plays on the wall, when the lights are on.
This one matches the one in the great room.
Notice the dust on the shelves, this house is misery for for me as I have an allergy to dust!
Bill needs to order more drawers from IKEA, for the right lower kitchen cupboard.
There will be granite installed as the back splash, after the horizontal pieces are installed on Monday.
New laser measurements will be taken & it will enter the que of being made at Precision Countertop in Moncton NB.
The chandelier on the floor, wrapped in plastic, is the same as the large one in this photo. The hallway & foyer have to be painted before it can be installed. This Restoration Hardware chandelier has a chrome like finish on it, to match the detailing in that area of the house.
We're not having the topsoil delivered till the spring, then the grass seed will be put down.
Oh I can't wait to have all that beautiful glass put in under the overhang on the left.
Scary height! This is the view from the 2nd story, looking down to the basement. You can see the garage door & the foyer opening.
Look up -- Look way up & I'll call Rusty! Friendly Giant days & only those of my age will get that saying. lol
The elevator did not get done when the guys where here as the opening was not made to spec...
No worries though, remember, I got a new porch installed! lol
Everything for a reason.
I totally forgot to show you the side stairs off the laundry room, next post for sure!
Autumn in New Brunswick is breath taking!
Look at the beautiful Autumn coloured trees & that blue sky!
Oh country road, take me home, to the place I belong....
Thank you for spending your time with me. I hope your excited as I am with all the changes to the Hardwicke House, our journey together is nearly over with this chapter & it's a good thing because---
Winter Is Coming!!!!
Thought for me this week~~~~~~~~~~
The secret of patience is doing something else in the meantime.
Have a great week everyone & the finish line is getting closer. I hope your getting everything done that you have started! Sometimes I feel I'm so far behind...I'm first! lol
