    More renovating, things are moving along. I hired an electrician to make sure all is wired properly and up to code.

    I hired a surf buddy with skills to put up the drywall with a little help from me

    Yesterday I got out the chainsaw and we laid waste to dead and dying trees etc in the front yard. Greenhouse and garden beds will be coming, that bed is garlic.

    I also took a little time to build a couple of simple benches for the fire pit.

    It's coming together more slowly than I'd like and I'm off to work on Sunday. We'll see how much plastering gets done before I'm home.

    I know you guys have a great property from previous rides in that area. It always reminds me of Hodderville on the Bonavista loop.
    The loop you're on is a great ride too, so we'll be sure to drop by the next time we're out your way:beer

    I rode that loop a couple of weeks ago at -5ºC when I got my 640 back together for the first time in 3 1/2 years, it is a nice little hour long scoot wit a few options to lengthen it.

    Well Sarah has finally gotten around to start plastering, it's looking good! The showers and toilets have been ordered, still looking for sinks. I'm home in a few weeks to lay out the plumbing and get ready to hit the floors. Time is my enemy these days.

    If all goes well there might be a coat of primer up before I get home.

    You can look forward to her welcoming you in when you arrive.:D

    That's a pretty good taping job for a rookie.

    She’s in a relationship with @skibum69! I think patience is a prerequisite! :hide

    Got room to park a 25' trailer? I'm heading there sooner or later this summer, I'll be hauling some sort of bike in the truck.

    Not sure he has the room in his yard, but there's lots of room 300m behind his house near the beach.

    If you've never slept near an ocean and listened to the waves and rocks rolling, I highly recommend it.

    Looks great. Hopefully you are continuing to work hard to get the place ready for the traveling masses.

    We are cranking along, getting ready to lay out the plumbing in the next couple of days around bleeding the front brakes on my 640 and getting out for a spin before we head to DC on Thursday.

    Ticking along oh so slowly, one week off at a time is not conducive to renovating. After the Skibum Soiree in August looking to get on a 3 and 3 schedule and going full tilt to get it finished inside in time for spring. Just had a bunch of wood on the property milled which shows there will be lots to build nice solid tent platforms. That being said I'm off to do a little floor leveling upstairs.
