More finishing details and the Dining Room chairs are delivered!!

31Jul16 –  Bit by bit, our Maple Forest Cottage is coming into it’s own. The kitchen shoe mold and all knobs and pulls are in.  Steve’s working on the laundry room railing as I write.

And the dining room chairs were delivered last week, just hours before we were going to entertain our best buddies from the Florida Keys!  Our first dinner in the dining room was wonderful.  We even had two other mountain friends over to join the four of us the next night. I’m thinking there will be a lot of good memories made around this dining room table!

Steve & I went on our 6th Rim Hike of the year and so far it is our favorite:  Patton’s Table near Mount Mitchell off the Blue Ridge Parkway.  We spent a good amount of time hiking through what I call The Enchanted Forest – it was like being in a fairy tale hobbit land.  I’ve included some pics of that, too.

 

Finishing touches in the Kitchen!

17Jul16 – Steve installed the crown moulding over the kitchen cabinets this weekend.  Just when you think the MFC couldn’t get any more spectacular, a finishing touch makes such a difference.  It’s all in the details – the look is fab.

Finishing more cabinets!

03Jul14 – Happy Fourth of July Weekend to all!  (Be safe out there!) fireworksWe’re lying low for the weekend- working on “house-things”, of course, and taking it slow for the day.  But, tomorrow I’m off to Maine to see my Grand kids for 4 days!  I’m so ready for a trip off-of-the-rock and to see my son & his family.  So looking forward to it.

Back at our Maple Forest Cottage….  Steve is finishing up the remaining cabinet fronts and lacquering more trim boards, still!  Here’s where we’re at today:
