Raise a Glass of Wine

Or whatever you like to drink. Here is my story. Five years ago when we built I decided I could do all the staining the shakes and painting the trim. I know what you are thinking, what was I thinking? I tell my friends and family that I surely was suffering from PMS. Otherwise common sense would have told me that the size of the house and each shake being it own little piece of the whole picture was hard work.
I told John, you know that cute guy that married me. I can do it. So here I am after five years done. Now don't get me wrong I am not wining, just sitting back and laughing at myself.

I actually had 99% of it done at the beginning of last year, however the window that was still not done needed an extension ladder, we made a promise to each other never to climb without one of us being present. That was the problem, we are never together on good days.

Yesterday was a big day and I decided to take of picture for you. Funny thing is you can hardly see the house but that's what summer's like here on Balsam Ponds.

Have a great Monday and be safe out there.


  1. Looks beautiful and congrats on the hard work.

  2. Thank you for sharing your story. It looks like you have been rewarded beautifully for all your hard work. Life has a path and each stepping stone on that path is an accomplishment.Well done.

  3. How beautiful! Looks like it is tucked in nature's womb!

  4. Nice going. We started building our dream cottage 13 years ago (my did help!). Next year I will be doing the floor then I can relax and have a glass of wine. :)
