Lakehouse Siding Update

Siding Update
The inevitable delay again. We are short 7 trim boards for the back dormer on the bonus room. It should look like these two front ones but instead it looks like house wrap arggghhhh. We think the dormers look so pretty though with the Hardie Shingles. The shingles are all the Timber Bark color. They make a nice contrast with the Woodstock Brown main color. Not sure how long it will take to bring the boards in and get them up here. With any luck the siding will be completed by snow fall. Still some windows to caulk and Adam has to replace a board we aren't happy with but all in all the house looks great. Wish the rock would have been done too but mother nature won't let that happen this year. Another project for spring  & summer 2014. 
Have to complete arbour above garage doors
On tap for this week Pat the landscaper/tin guy is coming up to move some dirt and level the driveway somewhat. Lay some geo tech and dump some rocks around. Plumber dude should be here this week to move some water lines, finish the outside water taps, rough in my workshop sink or actually install it if it works for me in the desk I want to install it in.

Crazy beautiful stormy sky I Instagram-ed the other night

We hung this gorgeous glass/iron sculpture that Angela gave me for my birthday on the wall under the  front porch

Relax... Respect... Enjoy... Dorri
