First task in 2019 was the installation of the kitchen counters. Great job by Urban Stone of Kanata.
The plumbing was completed the next day. It looks fantastic. Again, kudos to Shawn McLachlin, the owner of SBC Kitchens (Sandy Beach Cabinetry) for a great job on the kitchen.
We welcomed visitors Wayne and Ruth Brownlee on January 13 and they volunteered to help us wash up some dishes to start filling these lovely cupboards. We didn't get very far before the water stopped!
The problem was fixed 2 days later after determining that the well head had frozen because the well is too close to bedrock. The fix involved adding some bags of sand in the well hole and sand around the top. Hugh also left a tap dripping a very small amount to force the pump to come on about every 17 minutes. So far it's still working.
Usually I'm standing around watching others work so I have lots of time to take photos. On Jan 13 I was too busy with the dishes and forget to take pictures. So here are Wayne and Ruth enjoying a walk in the forest the next day at the farm, and enjoying the beauty of a Canadian winter.
Ken, Michelle and the kids also dropped in on the 13th for lunch before putting on their ski gear and heading over to Calabogie Peaks to ski. Again, no pics!
On January 18, Hugh lugged baseboard and window and door trim materials inside in preparation for the finishing work. He intends to paint it first.
And on this beautiful day Holly, Chase and I enjoyed our first walk on the frozen lake and we got a really good look at the lake house. Too bad I can't hold the phone level!
