Ah, a brief look at the current before and after. It still shocked me to compare “the shack” to the lakeview cottage as it is evolving before our very eyes. Much as I bitch and moan about the process because every quote seems to take forever to come in, it’s a real motivator watching a home evolve relatively quickly in front of your very eyes. We still have a long road ahead of us; three windows still outstanding and new patio doors on the way. New double front door and interior doors being installed early November. Kitchen cabinets go in order this week, as do the new stair railings. Meanwhile our hardwoods are en route, and structural work upstairs *should* start Thursday. Watch this space!
