The Bare Bones

Piece by piece, board by board, nail by nail…. the process of deconstruction. As with any historical site, this process is done carefully and thoughtfully, with respectful attention to detail.

Here are a few shots of the latest work being done in the Cottage.

The doors being stored in the quiet room until they get some attention.

Refinishing the baseboards- paint removal in progress soon to be sanded and then varathaned.

And, a found gift– a vacated Robin’s nest. It is now safely tucked away so we may share it with the children. We can imagine some good stories will emerge from this beautiful nest.

We are so fortunate to be able to observe this restoration in action!
