October 21-25, 2009

The loft area before the windows and drywall were installed and the support frame dismantled. Unfortunately, in our haste to "hit the road", we did not take a photo of the progress on the loft but "it looks good".

A warm fire keep the construction gang from being too grouchy and and suffering from frost bite.

August 27 - Sept 4, 2009 - Interior Walls

A comfortable bed. Note the bed frame fashioned with bags of insulation.

This is not what it looks like (city workers ... one working and the rest looking). The Drywall installers were very busy beavers. It the electrician who was a bit on the lazy side.

June 25 - July 9, 2009 Deck Phase of Project

The completed deck with the railing to be added sometime in the future. We literally finished installing the metal roofing in a light rain but for a change did not have to tarp the roof. The rain continued into the evening into the next day. The deck was christened with a liquid libation under a dry roof.

One poplar tree had to be cut down to accomodate the overhang of the deck roof. A rope attached to the skidsteer felled the tree in the proper direction.
