30Aug13 – We had our framing inspection yesterday and passed with flying colors except for some fire blocks here & there and discussion about our misplaced chimney. Came up with solutions for both. So the Framers are here today finishing up the last of their work. The chimney masons will be here next week to add 22″ of block to the girth of the chimney so it will meet the roof of the main house.
Thursday Steve & I spent the whole day cleaning up the house & most of the grounds. Our Maple Forest Cottage has come alive! Getting saw dust out of all the warm board channels was quite a chore, but I enjoyed it. Felt like I was communing with the Cottage on an intimate level. Very friendly home…. We had some fellow Creston owners stop by to view our construction later in the day – they’ll be starting in 6 months. They love the Maple Forest Cottage! But then, who doesn’t? ;- )
By 730pm we were out on the “screened” porch looking at our view in our lounge chairs dirty, exhausted, and happy to be able to have such a beautiful place to call home.
Pictures coming soon…..
