This is our copper louvre for ventilation, it's awfully pretty. We haven't gotten the bill for it yet so we'll see how pretty we think it is at that point! Of course, it won't be this shiny for long. The sea air will cause it to patina very quickly.
We've placed our generator inside the well-house. We'll need it fairly often because the storms wreak havoc on the power lines, what with trees falling and high winds. We've heard stories of the power being down for a week at a time. The generator will be set up to come on automatically when the electricity goes down.
We ordered our windows and doors yesterday. It was quite a process deciding what type of window to put where. Should it be operable, which way should it open, what type of opening (sliders, awning, casement)? After months of mulling it over it was finally time to just do it.
Jen, Ryan and the kids are visiting this week. We're having lots of fun. Cliff is giving motorcycle rides, Jake is shooting the pellet gun, Warren ran into a car down the street when he lost control of his bike and has a nice bruise on his head. All is well and very normal!
