While his wife and daughter were in the city one day, he put in the flooring. This is wood that was salvaged from their kitchen ceiling in the old stone house. I'd love to have this quality of hardwood in my own home!
The siding is nearly complete, and again he's using salvaged wood on the addition. This wood is from an old barn.
There is still some work to be done on the front, trimming out the windows and a stoop. He's also planning to build a deck on the back side (north facing) so there is a place to sit in the shade when the temperatures rise.
This is the view of the east side, in the late afternoon, looking towards the valley and the hills beyond.
Still left to be completed is the loft where L plans to use as a reading space, a desk area for art work and writing, and whatever else she decides to decorate it with.
Although I wasn't happy about having to get rid of the shed, I'm so grateful to R to finding a place for it on the farm. I know he's enjoying it too - he called the other evening, when he was out at the shed after clearing some of the growth from the path leading to it. And with L graduating in a year and going to school in another city, I suspect it may become more of man-cave.
In any event, I know it is being put to good use!
