Hugh's trim painting project continued through January and into February, making good use of the gap in construction caused by the 4 week lead time for the delivery of the interior doors. We went with solid core doors which are special ordered from the factory by Bytown Lumber in Carleton Place. The big challenge with the trim painting project was finding space for it to be painted and dry. For a relatively small building there is a lot of trim!
With the imminent delivery of the doors, Brian and Mitch got started on the window trim.
Then the doors were hung and it all looks fantastic.
And the fine and very functional temporary bathroom door was replaced!
We now have new seat covers for the chairs we salvaged from Ken and Michelle's cottage cast off pile last summer - the seat covers had suffered to some mildew damage. Great recovering work by Frank Cantusci Upholstery in Stittsville and chair cleaning and polishing by Hugh!
And here's Hugh relaxing with a cup of tea and a muffin after reassembling the chairs. Holly is not so relaxed!
What's next? Baseboards, and door painting.
Last weekend we enjoyed a walk on the lake westward towards the nearby Calabogie Peaks Ski Resort which you can see in the middle background of this photo.
Holly and Chase enjoyed some energetic snowmobile chasing at the beginning of our walk but quickly discovered that it's a no-win exercise. They do know where their new lake home is and they led us back to it.
