    These LVL beams are damned heavy! The long ones had to be 100 lbs each. Moving right along, at the back you can see where the kitchen window from the above pics has been replaced with one the same size as the other 3 to add way more light and now the last beam is in place built out of 4 pieces of 2"x12" LVL. Now to rebuld the ceiling to get the place insulated ASAP as it's not getting any warmer outside. Things are moving sooo much faster on this side than the first side. Hopefully the next pics will be new walls!

    I was wondering how things are going in your part of the woods....thanks for the update. After all that work, you two should consider having a house warming party, I'll bring the ice cream (would french vanilla be ok for the moose milk).

    Fortunately things are moving about 5 times faster than the other side so we might actually be able to open in the spring. Last year the windows were supposed to go in in June but didn't until November! This year we put them in 3 days after they were delivered. Same goes for the beam with only a little hickup for my buddy to get his boat out of the water and put away for winter. He's an inshore fisherman so I was happy to work around him to get set.

    You are more than welcome to bring the ice cream for whatever party you want, just let us know so we can get the spoons out.:D

    Did I mention we're already working on a collaboration beer with one of the local breweries to have our own beer?

    Love the beer idea. Might be reason enough to head out your way. You'll need custom glassware to sell as well.

    You must be a beer geek, did you say glassware? Here's a few of mine, see anything you know?

    If you want to keep talking beer here's a link to a rabbit hole...

    Funny you should say glassware now as I was just talking about it with a local brewer the other day. Teku glasses might be a little tough to take home in your panniers so I'll have to go for something a little heavier methinks.

    Thanks for the thought of "69" I might actually use that for a brew. I'm friends with most of the NL microbreweries so I see myself doing multiple collaborations. How many labels can I get my face on? 2 down, how many more to go hahahaha.................

    A beer geek? Possibly. Here are some of mine in the case in the kitchen beside my computer. Yes; my cats do get their water from a crystal bowl. Didn't have a better use for it. And the honey lager I am enjoying as I read your latest post. Thanks for the link. I will check it out.

    Yeah mine are beside the kitchen with a few cupboards more full in the kitchen. I’ve been bringing them home from all over the world and I usually try to get 2 of each.

    I don’t drink very many lagers, headed to a 2nd Beer launch of a coolaboration with a local brewery and a local chef all fr Ends of mine. Good bit of fun.

    I also own a small Beer forum modeled after this one, link is in my sig line.

    Our cats eat out of stainless steel but
    I like the thought of crystal bowls.:lol3

    It's a whole lot different now with the walls moved.

    The electrician has been in but isn't quite done yet

    more insulation is always good, getting rid of the old nasty insulation is better

    You do not need a reservation because we're not 100% sure of our timeline. Definitely drop us a line when you're on the road and we'll let you know what's up. Even if we can't take you we can direct you to other locations.

    Yesterday there was a little snow, today there is nothing. The house looks small in this picture.

    All it takes is a warm day of rain and the snow is all gone. The hot/cold conditions we've been getting are hard on the plants and animals. But it makes for a nice day in the garden.:D
