A dog day in the Hudson Valley

New driveway and house going in in Gardiner NY.  This 2800 sq ft home has lake frontage and lots of privacy and is about 5 minutes outside of New Paltz.

Then a punch list at a Ranch house that will close next week in Kerhonkson NY.  This 2400 sq ft 3 bedroom 3 bath house is pretty amazing.

Stopped by Farm 34 to see how everyone was doing in Saugerties NY.

New Ranch house for sale in Saugerties NY - 1500 sq ft 3 beds.  Don't seem to last long in Saugerties NY.

New trash cans means new homeowners just moving in.

....to this new farmhouse in Copake NY.

Our video pro in the flesh.

Red Hook NY Ranch house up for sale.

Ranch house in Woodstock NY will close in a week or two.

Then a 5 mile hike in Minnewaska State Park outside of New Paltz NY.  Reminds me of Yosemite - where once you get 1 mile off the beaten path, no one is around.

BAck into New Paltz.

 And the next day a boat ride with a client.  His abode we designed and renovated.

Lucas at the Helm.

Dog on the Watch.

Saturday morning dog walk in New Paltz, NY.

Swim party at Barn house in Saugerties later today.

Life of Catskill Farms Founder (and others)

Ouch, I don't think I've had such a delay between posts since like, well, since like forever - or at least since I started writing this blog back in old 2007 or something.

Things are busy, I mean like real busy.  We are a well-oiled machine and we are having a hard time just keeping all the inquiries straight.  Building a house seems simple when compared to reading, sorting, prioritizing all the folks interested in what we are doing.

Cooking with gas as they say.

Quick wrap up -

Mountain Biking in Moab Utah with some boys.

Lucas' first year of baseball.

Traded him two pieces of brocoli for a nerf machine gun.

got a sweet new farm dog and we named it lulu (if it turned out to be a boy, we figured LouLou would work).

Sold a few homes.

40 mile 5 Boro Bike Ride.

In the cold rain...

 Threw a dinner party ...

ate a cupcake before the guests arrived.

Planned a European road trip this summer with Lucas.

Laid out a house in the woods with the Cunninghams in Gardiner.

This guy below, George Billard, is running around town telling every one the new gas infrastructure being built nearby will 'destroy our community and our way of life."

Said the same thing about the Dollar General Store that just opened.  Lucas and I were the first ones in when they opened.  Big news for a small town.  Bought our nerf machine gun there.

Country living.

Geese come back every year to start this years family.  This year they started with 7 and seemed to have finished with 7,

Biggest Facebook post ever, with 1400 post likes, 200 shares, and 200 comments, and pushed our page likes past 5300 (but who's counting such silly things).

Barn 9, Kerhonkson NY, SOLD

Barn 9 in Kerhonkson NY sold a couple of weeks ago.  We built it without a buyer lined up and had a lot of fun designing the whole thing in-house, a rare exercise these days.  Typically they get signed up for pretty quick.


Ikea kitchen.  I used to think these were a 'more affordable option', but with some simple bells and whistles, they get pricey quick.

Salvaged wood mudroom with red crossbuck door and stone on the floor.

Basement build out.

Screened porch and back deck.

Site built custom stairs.

Famous duel barn door look.

Pretty fun house in a great area of upstate NY.  Something Mom would definitely proud to visit.
