What Are You Building In Your Neighborhood?

Snowman

This structure went up pretty quickly and has added a lot of value to the neighboring properties.  We had our best people on it from the start and they put it together with skill and joie de vivre!

In an odd turn of events we at the beach found ourselves living in the northeast or some other northern clime this winter.  I even considered getting a snow shovel!  I mean what’s with all this white stuff?  Where does it come from?  Can I get some really good Sulawesi Toraja coffee in this place?

Nevertheless, I must say that it is quite beautiful here–the snow, the ice, the beach, the ocean…I trust all the wildlife is faring well!

I suppose that’s about it for now–thank you for reading and have a superfine day!

It’s Good to Have a Roof in the Snow!

P1470273

When I took these photos over the weekend most of the snow had melted. Now it’s snowing again!  I thought I was living at the Beach, but apparently I was mistaken!  I’ve run outdoors once in the last week-and-a-half.  Thank goodness for treadmills!  Just a quick side note…to keep my speed up I dangle a bottle of Sierra Nevada Torpedo Ale in front of me…whatever works, right?

We also learned that one of our dogs is a total fire hound.  If not for the fireplace screen I’m sure he would be the fourth log on the fire.  He wants to move to the Keys.

Yes, a roof is a good thing especially when cold things are falling from the sky (I don’t mean beer).  The roof tends to keep the things under it dry, which is good.  I was very clear with our builder, “We want one of those houses that keeps the stuff in it dry.”  We are right on top of it.  We are grateful for the roof!G

Sorry I must go–have to tie a bottle to the end of stick…

Oh, I almost forgot, there is a Bruce’s Park Civic League meeting at Jacox Elementary at 6 PM Thursday Feb. 26.  Hope to see you there!

A Roof and Everything, Well Almost…

The builders are flying at 1241 Hanson–the framing including the roof is just about complete! And we still have the dog, the German Shepherd protector, making sure that no snacks go uneaten 🙂

I hope everyone is warm and dry and that all is going great!

What, Another 1241 Hanson Update?

Hello Friends!  Cold enough for ‘ya?  At least I thought it was funny…

First floor framing is underway, and note the nice German Shepherd in the second two pics.  His job is to ensure that snacks are delivered on time 🙂  All is going smoothly and we’re sending a big ‘thank you’ to Montgomery Builders for keeping this puppy on track.

As always, thanks for watching and enjoy the day!
