With the Bedford renovation in the books, now’s the time to git ‘r done, Rhode Island Style. The windows are all and this past weekend, two massive ledger boards went up that will carry two decks.
The best new addition is the ClamDoor, a fabulous Rhode Island designed fiberglass bulkhead, marketed by our great local building supply store, Humphrey’s, out of Tiverton. The Clam Door handsomely replaces the ugly metal Bilco doors that are famous for rusting, especially at homes near or on the ocean. It was easy to install (so says Mr. EOS). I helped by holding the Mint Julep. 🙂
There’s a plan afoot of being able by fall to have some simple way to use the new Carriage House – a toilet, a sink, a microwave. Deck chairs for the sunset. What else could anyone want?
I remind anyone who says “what’s taking so long” to absorb the detail that Mr. EOS is doing this 100% by himself….from crafting a way to lift the windows up to the second story to moving and assembling the scaffolding. Labor of love (and some days hate, at the high winds off the ocean that prevent some detail work).
Circle Summer of 2016 for the deck party!
