Closed In

The cottage is now closed in thanks to a new door.


The door was assembled over one and a half days.

The door was filled with a layer of poly-iso foam insulation.

And it was installed just in time. The first freezing temperatures of the season will be tonight.

The previous week a lot of work was done filling gaps and holes in the building to help it get closed in. Here some gaps in the foundation are closed up.

Inside some of the storm wash out from last year was smoothed over with a clay mixture.

Until spring all the remaining work will be done inside. I missed the window of opportunity for applying lime plaster on the exterior. Lime cannot freeze so lime plastering is now on hold until spring time.
