LE MASSIF DE CHARLEVOIX, QUEBEC. CANADA

Did have the snow but not quite the weather to capture Le Massif's iconic trademark image of skiing right into the St Lawrence River.

PROJECT PINECREST. DARTMOUTH, NOVA SCOTIA. CANADA

Hasn't this been fun. 
Our winter had us roll into Nova Scotia in 2020. 
After laying low for the first month or so we in 2021 moved into Nicola's new house.
Almost right away we started some renovations.
Here nearing the end of March you'll see some finishing touches of what has been an amazingly rewarding  project.
Grateful all around.

Finishing some baseboards to finish off the new red pine floor.
Thanks Flooring Fraser.



Carried the pine feature throughout the house in some feature beams, shelves, door and window trim,.....


TeePee Wardrobe.
Can't find it in the IKEA catalogue.
@#$%^& right!!!


Lets go take a look at whats happening in the backyard.

Thanks to Kate:
Ring of Fire


Compost bins with sloted removable boards. 
Clever.


Chair check.
The raised beds in the background are waiting to be plotted.
Garden Feng Shui.

Nicola's view of things.
My view of things........
"this piece is way too straight"

Garden tool shed.
Kate and I had fun sourcing and picking up a rather large and heavy load of local rough Hemlock.
Most everything from the raised beds, shed, chairs,....are all nicely heavy duty.

Construction crew.
Dangerous sleeping at the same place where you are working.
Before you realize it you have put in a half day and you are still in your pajamas.


Seedling room.
Shelves, nice..... but take a look at the floor Nicola and Kate threw down.
Mexican tile.

Early reno demo.
Didn't realize it that not only was I building stuff,
I was also building character.....
a bad one.

Shelves, kitchen.

Kate taking advantage of Nicola's sewing operation.

Happy birthday!!
Everyone needs to visit the island to see what was in the box.
