    Your place looks great! Sorry I missed you on my recent trip, but Newfoundland was magnificent and I will definitely return and hope to spend much more time there (and on the bike), and will surely stop in for a visit then.

    This spot will be a cool waypoint for our little DS groups future NFLD travels ....any chance the inn/ campground coordinates be put in the first post {and where fuel is in proximity to the location}?

    Thanks for putting this up Bob, it was great to see you.

    flex, did I see you’re going to CroMag?

    I think we can get the coordinates up, I should go back to looking for an off-road route up from Argentia. Fuel is close to here north and south.

    It’s been a bountiful year to my eye despite a cold spring and late summer. The missus tells me it’s nothing yet as it’s only the first year for her soil. I’m still amazed.

    Greenhouse is coming along

    The herb garden was filling up and the fire pit is cozy

    First batch of garlic this season

    Her new garden bed was full more than once

    On rainy days we did things like put up trim and crown moulding

    Some days I think I can see the end of the Reno’s.

    Poking around a little more this week getting a few odds and ends done

    I was away at work for 3 weeks and do you think the missus could find a couple of hours to paint trim for me to put up when I got back?

    Me painting a couple of batches of trim, I wasn't going to wait any longer.

    Also waiting for her to do this tiny last bit of plastering so I can get to working on the last shared bathroom. Again I was tired of waiting to I decided to take a stab at plastering myself. Came out pretty good methinks.

    It's behind where the shower is going to go to make it look like a continuous ceiling

    There will be a little wall and door there to hide the linen closet for us.

    finally bought and hung the second ensuite bathroom door

    finished the baseboard in that bedroom and bathroom

    now almost all of the finish work is done in that room except the door trim where I had to move a light switch followed by some plastering. Plus the electrician has to come back to finish putting in the last of the breakers for upstairs.

    The last little bit of plastering and it will finally be finished! Been a long time coming! Not too much left, the stairs, the entryway and plumbing in the basement replacing standpipe and running drains to the new grey water tank plus finishing the last bathroom. A couple of wee walls upstairs for the coffee nook and the linen closet. We're planning to build a new porch/entry on our side and we think we can put a deck on top of it that guests can access from beside the coffee nook; the afternoon sun will be lovely there.

    I can feel it! Plan is to open for spring for a couple of months before I'm slated to go to Siberia/Mongolia/stans for a couple of months.
