Progress continued last week with significant work on the steel roof. It's dark grey which is a little difficult to tell in yesterday's mid afternoon November sunshine. We're very pleased with it.
The plumbing and electrical has also been roughed in over the last couple of weeks, as evidenced by the dangling electrical outlets and cables in the photo above. The furnace was installed in the crawl space last week, and heating ducts are in the floor.
Yesterday (Sunday) was a beautiful sunny day after a fairly lengthy spell of cloudy, cool and rainy days. So we spent the afternoon at the lake property to burn the remaining brush that came down off the big maple tree in the mid-September tornado winds. Here's Hugh hard at it. Reminiscent of his days of burning at our Carp home after the January 1998 ice storm. No singed hair this time!
After a several week absence from the lake, Holly and Chase were delighted to accompany us yesterday. We were unsure how Holly would react to the much colder lake water but, as we suspected, she was undeterred from swimming. Her swims were relatively short but she did go in the water several times with breaks in between swims to run around the yard with Chase.
The water level is back up to its summer level. The fluctuating water levels is possibly related to the extensive damage from the tornado at the hydro generating station at the east end of the lake in Calabogie village.
Late in the afternoon Chase and Holly welcomed a visit by their buddy Dallas, the golden retriever. He and Chase wore themselves out running around!
We were pleased that Chase and Holly were pretty good about staying on our property on this long visit with only short forays into the neighbouring yards. They also enjoyed their first experience inside the new building.
