The Year of the Sundog

Updated: Apr 9, 2018



First of all, Happy Chinese New Year to all - The Year of the Dog! Or is that "The Year of the

Sundog", as we still plan to open later this summer. Despite the wet weather (and therefore really muddy conditions) we haven't lost much time in the schedule. We look forward to rapid progress on the house now that the foundation is complete. We expect to be "under roof" by the middle of next week!

From down the hill, the twin chimneys of the future sitting room (left) and dining room (right). There will be a wrap-around porch on the first floor.


From below where the perennial gardens will be.

And finally, a low angle mid-February setting sun highlighting the white bark of the American sycamore (Platanus occidentalis).
