Not Messing Around - Cottage 28 Commences

Wow, what a perfect spring for construction. Usually it's all muddy and messy and soggy and hard to navigate but not this year - this year is sunny and dry and slightly breezy and mid 50's. So dramatically different from last year where it started to rain in May and didn't stop all summer. It rained every day. It reminded me of 2003, when I was building my first home and it rained everyday, making every effort triply difficult.

The thing about Catskill Farms and it's catskill real estate efforts is that we build quick - I mean real quick - no messin' around quick. 6 days a week, 10-12 hours a day, with an army of skilled talent. I purchased this piece of land in February, and we started construction - putting in the foundation - on April 5.

Check out the progress below -

Excavation and Foundation - Week of April 5th.

Week of April 12 -
Foundation complete, foundation waterproofed, perimeter drain installed, and house backfilled.

Day 4.
This house is being built on 'spec', meaning no buyer lined up at time of construction. The price is $335,000, and will be ready by August or so.

And today Denzil and Carolyn come up to check it out for the 2nd time.
