GH14: Lookin’ Purty

Work on the guest house and cottage has continued steadily, though not always photogenically. I’ve got lots of images and not enough time to post. It is pre-winter busy here tho the weather has been anything but winter.

A milestone was reached Tuesday when the power hook up was completed by our electrical co-op and hard work by Chris & Isaiah the electricians. This entailed a lot of trenching in difficult, tight spots to get a new line to caretakers’ cottage and to the guest cottage. And they did it!

The building inspector is also impressed. Many thanks to excellent contractors.

We are still looking for another $22,000 (more or less) to cover all costs between now and when the final interior trim and cabinets are done.
