We recently retired and set off on the adventure of building a new log home on 10.55 acres in North Country. This piece of land is part of the Adirondack State Park and includes a rear boundary along the St. Regis River and a wonderful creek (which we've named Andy's Creek because Rick's brother Andy found the land). The creek has several waterfalls, the land itself is about 4 acres of meadow and 6.5 acres of beautiful woods (most of it evergreens) complete with winding paths, and clearings to just wander through and enjoy nature.
This blog is meant to include our family and friends in this wonderful adventure. So enjoy the journey with us.
The weather was hot (very hot) and dry for putting on the garage roof. Some of the hottest days of summer. For the past week Rick and Andy were starting earlier in the morning to get things done before the burning sun of the afternoon kicked in. When the shingles started to burn your hands you knew it was time to quit for the day.
So the roof went from this... To better than half way done...
