I wish Patrick would have asked his opinion on which system is the least likely to leak. That is the biggest thing I would worry about. Water leaks can be wicked expensive after the sheetrock goes up. I can't imagine that every system has identical track records regarding leaking.
Did you drill holes in the floor for the tent stakes? Would like to see the whole barn including the outside.
Positively gorgeous. Looks like something from the south like New Orleans... never would have guessed Maine.
Those screws are really hard. That made short work of it.
It is a shame that economics is such a forceful reality to the outcome of homes like this. But the fact is that, if the local economy and the local infrastructure cannot support a class of citizen that can maintain a home like this, it will fall. Think about it...if this home were in a rural area 20 miles from the nearest town, it would take a person with considerable means to restore it and maintain it all alone in the country. Not a very pleasant scenario for most folks. Beautiful elevation none the less...
The title says 2007. Is that supposed to say 2017?
Thats a pretty penny...weekend place? Geez...
Why does the facia on the left and right side project out a few inches farther than the front facia?
That was very informative. That makes 3 more tools I gotta have for my collection. I never knew that slate could cut like that. I thought it would shatter...
Yup, that's nice. But it doesn't appear to be under the stairs. Perhaps they are hiding the stairs?
