wood stove

Earlier this year we selected a wood stove that we liked the looks of; it also fit our budget.  The price at the time reflected the fact that the stove was discontinued and would no longer be available in the U.S.  After much looking we have found what we were told is the last one in the country.  We look forward to installing the Scan 60 wood stove soon.

control joints

We cut control joints in the concrete slab at predetermined locations and at doorways  to eliminate cracking in other areas of the floor.  The close-up photos also show the variation in color.

kitchen cabinets

The kitchen cabinets are installed and awaiting appliances. The 30" under counter refrigerator/freezer will be located on the right, the 24" range and hood on the left.  The post and beam frame the kitchen alcove and echo the posts and beams at the porch on the exterior.
