The summer of 2014 facelift

The winter of 2013-14 was a nasty, long and cold event.  While we are grateful that the island did not suffer any major physical damage, the clapboarding of the main house and the windows were in dire need of a facelift.

What follows is a timeline of what we did during the month of July.  What would a trip to Crescent be without a few “projects”? I will spare you the curse words, the cries for Advil and the groans after 12 hours/ day of steady work.  Or the number of beerz this took.

While there is more to be done (as in a second coat of stain and whoops! a few windows I forgot to re-glaze before we re-hung the windows), the house looks a thousand times better than it did at the beginning of the season.

We made progress, and it shows, and I am grateful to everyone who lent a hand in this project! More pictures will be posted soon of the improvements to the West Cabin deck (thank you Bruce and Nancy) and the ever so special Envirolet dual blower potty fan! Betcha can’t wait for that picture!

You can look at these images as a gallery, or click on any one to expand it and then play it as a slideshow.
