New Railings

Our railings for the steps and the sides were installed last week. Jack a local artist made them by hand. The railings are brushed iron in a rust look with metal wiring running vertically similar to the wire on sailboats. The metal wire gives the railings a nautical feel.

We still have to do all our staining and painting in the house but we decided to leave this project for the spring.

Baths, Chainsaws and a new Office

We are adjusting nicely to our new home. Nicoles whirlpool bathtube is bubbling and the 2nd floor bathroom has 1 sink left to be connected. The basement office area is finished other than than cultured stone I need to place on the chimnney and the radiant heat flooring that needs some plumbing work.

Nicole bought her self a nice little lightweight Echo chainsaw under the sage guidance of Maine woodsmen Marvin Moore (our awesome neighbor). She just loves her wood. Our woodstove cranks 24-7. She aka "hot rods" the stove.

Oh yeah...Marvin has been dropping off "trees" at the house which he has cut down on land clearing jobs the last 2-weeks. We should have enough wood for next two years. All we need now is one of those little Kubota or John Deere tractors and we will fit right in up here.
