Facelift

For the last two weeks the runway and the cottage have undergone a facelift courtesy of contractor Warren Cowing. Time and tide had battered the house and it was time to upgrade the siding. This old place will be tight for the winters from now on. I added the buoys and the cameras back and this is the reveal.


I added a few planters and some new plants yesterday. Keeps the water off the foundation where an ancient sill had to be replaced.


This final image comes from a restored camera. Once again our thanks go out to the family of Hank Stahr for making this happen. This camera should offer a remarkable look at winter storms.


This was a labor intensive project. There was a ton of lifting, loading, staging, painting, and cleaning up. I think the result speaks for itself. I learned a lot watching and taking a part. There may be one more chore before the year is out as part of the kitchen roof may need to be brought up to speed.
