    Not much room, but it'll hold me up as I pass out.

    Mike, when I was there, you mentioned about possibly having some tent pads back in the trees and away from the house somewhat. Any luck or update on that.

    You are correct, I think I can fit about 8 tent sites back there and the plan is 10' x 10' tent platforms. Being busy trying to get inside done I haven't had time to start that outside work yet. For now we'll put campers in the apple orchard or anywhere else they might like to pitch a tent. Once the tent sites are done Sarah is planning bees for the orchard plus a little cook house/sugar shack in the orchard.

    I'm a hammock guy too. I think there are enough trees around, that once he cleans and opens the area for the tent pads, should have spots available for hammocks.

    Pretty sweet backyard area he has.

    Or hang the hammock in his shed.

    Lots of trees around for hammocks, I don't see there being any issues for the hammock crowd to find a good spot to pitch. Maggot has been here before, he knows what's around a little bit.

    Ok then, gone mad in the 3rd bathroom this week. This bathroom will be shared by the south east and south west smaller rooms. We got a ton done to the point it's almost done except the plumbing in the basement.

    getting the porcelain in
    [​IMG]

    shower installed
    [​IMG]

    beadboard for accent walls
    [​IMG]

    Done!
    [​IMG]

    crown moulding that turned out to be a different size than the hall, corners in because the walls aren't square therefore the cuts don't work
    [​IMG]

    more beadboard all trimmed up, waiting to get some more moulding for the top
    [​IMG]

    the missus had an excellent idea to cover the hole in the wall
    [​IMG]

    I need doorknobs for the bathrooms
    [​IMG]

    the original antique hardware cleaned up 50 coats of paint with a heatgun, now I need 2 more little antique door plates to finish the last 2 doors.

    I like it! It's been a great week of progress.

    That's awesome. Not sure about having a glass bathroom door though.

    We've got some etching paste we're going to use to glaze the glass, we did think of that. We went with glass to let the light through from that window.

    There are already enough images in my head that I can't unsee.:lol3

    So after spending all xmas trying to fly out to a rig for a week but instead being stuck on land checking in at the heliport I got home for a whopping 2 days before flying out for the next gig. In that 2 days we got a bunch of stuff done. We are so close to being done upstairs I can smell it!

    A new light fixture chrome finish and cheap. It looks ok and matches the chrome everywhere else. I pretty much hate all other metal finishes for interior stuff.

    We got to working on the coffee nook for the first time

    levelled and laid the last bit of floor quick and easy
    [​IMG]

    whacked up a bunch more beadboard
    [​IMG]

    slapped on some paint
    [​IMG]

    did a test fit of the bamboo countertop and fridge
    [​IMG]

    Voila! One coffee nook roughed in
    [​IMG]

    That's gonna be my beer fridge for a bit, the missus keeps putting food in the one downstairs.:lol3

    And we've been looking at linens. A few bedding related websites do reviews of sheets and I came across one brand that uses certified Egyptian cotton and were top rated on a few sites. I gave them a call and low and behold they're sending us a sample set of queen sheets for us to try before we buy. Pretty cool! We will make sure you are well coddled when you go too bed.:D

    Hope your greenhouse is still standing.
    What do you have for snowbank/snow drift accommodations?

    74 cm's of snow in 24 hours in St. John's, new record that broke the last one from 1894! 150 kmh winds! Out here on the boat I'm on 75 knots and 11 meter seas, there are a few things rolling around.

    I haven't talked to the missus yet today to see how badly she's buried, the power went out about 17:30 last night.

    No biggie, we're bobbing around pretty good and most work is on hold but pretty nice I my opinion.
