Nellie and Brinkley do love each other!

Another finished house

Here are a few pics from another one we just finished up. I think the kitchen came out beautiful.

Latest house

This is in Starks maine. Coming over the bridge was a bit tricky with the crane, but other than that it was a great set. The house will be sided with live edge siding onsite, which is why there is no siding shown here yet.

Cleaning the open chamber

Em, Mom and I spent some time sunday afternoon going through the attic and sorting and consolidating our childhood keepsakes... We found a few surprises (emilys bug collection), many funny things (lots of really dated cassette tapes - can you say milli vanilli?) and got rid of a lot of junk.

Moms new front door

Many hands make light work:)

Farm stand photos

A few pictures from the farm this weekend where pumpkin picking hay rides are ongoing. My brother in law, Ryan, put together a beautiful display. I am responsible for the pumpkin sculpture (no snowman comments please :)). It was a beautiful weekend for pumpkin picking.

Newport house, finishing up

So, we are winding down with the newport house and are turning it over to the homeowners tomorrow. Here are a few pictures from last night - it was around sunset so some of the pics are a little dark.... The guys did a great job on this one and really pulled things together. I am sure the homeowners are going to be so pleased.


So Em, Dan and the rest of the family really pulled on over on my last weekend and threw me one heck of a surprise party. I was too busy having a great time to take many pics, but here are a couple from the hay ride. Also, a couple pics of making cider the next day with Eric & Cindy who stayed with us after the party.

Whoa Nellie!

Here is a pciture of Nellie yesterday, she must be about 110lbs these days. 7.5 months! Whoa Nellie!

New House

We set this house yesterday.....

Split level finished

John says I should post pics of the houses when we complete then, not just pics of the set day, to show that we actually finish them after they are set! :) So, this house is a split level we recently completed.

Camping at Mooselookmeguntic

Our annual camping trip with Will & Kristen!! Great weather, great food, great fishing, great R&R (except that nellie popped our air mattress so sleeping on the ground our second night was not so restful), and great friends! Can't wait for next year!
