Cottage 8

Cottage 8 is just turning the corner for the final stretch. All the sheetrock has been hung and finished, all the wood plank ceilings have been installed, the wood plank accent walls, the wide plank floors, the cedar bath on the ground floor. All we got to do is 'trim her out' and then she's ready for paint.

Here's a pic looking up into the loft, with the wood ceilings before they are painted white.

Large rough sawn steps with open stringers leading up to the loft, and one of our signature hand hewn barn posts holding the house up.

The Owners have been experimented with materials and choices that we haven't used before so it's been interesting to see the result. For instance this chimney and foundation was covered with 'shale', creating a layered layed up stone look.

And from the loft, looking out into the living room below. I always like the way the sheetrock looks after it's polished but before it is painted.

And a taste of what this fancy little mini-house is going to look like upon completion. Green roof, cedar shake siding, shale stone on the foundation and front and back porches.

Pretty darn perfect country living in Yulan NY, just 3 miles from the Delaware River.
