Critters and Celebrations

The living room, taking shape now, standing at the back door looking north

Top of the landing, looking downstairs.  Panels are hand carved and original to the house.

Blue tailed skink, just decided to visit the second floor one day, on the endangered species list

Resident black rat snake, Charles ("Charlie" for short), who insists on popping up in all kinds of unexpected places.

Dining room table and chandelier from Deep Landing Workshop.  These artifacts are a portion of the total recovered from the soil at this point.

Another view of the living room, from the front door looking southwest

The same view closer to the stairs leading into the dining room. Floors are beautiful, from Carlisle Wide Plank Flooring, gingerbread stain and tung oil finish, with the knots left in when milled.

And we had a celebration of the completion of Phase I recently, with family, food and friends, along with folks who worked on the house, to include Jeff Conner's team with Chester River Carpentry (general contractor), Steve Toth (tiling), H&B Plumbing and Electricity (Bob Meffey); Johnson Tree (driveway); Relay Mechanical (Rick Hudson); Maurice Jones (ML Jones Masonry), and Rick with ADT security.  Many thanks to all for joining our fun and adventure!

Looking forward to the continuing growth and blooming of HU
