5: Walls are framed, trusses are set, the structure is sheeted and waterproofed. The shingles go on and the windows go in. We are now "dried in". | The Addition Takes Shape!
6: There is still much work to do- the garage floor is compacted, poured, and electrical work is done. The staircase inside the cabin is reconfigured and one bathroom is remodeled. Windows are installed and the focus then moves outdoors to finish up the siding, pour concrete and work on landscaping before the sacred summer vacation months arrive. | is quickly approaching.

18: With the addition of the second bay onto the garage there was space available to add a mudroom, powder bathroom, and laundry area off of the Kitchen (inside the previous garage space). This addition, although fairly tiny, provided a huge increase in the functionality of the lake house. | Added Space
