A Couple More Construction Pics

I'm just hoping that these walls are still standing once Sandy get through with us.  The prediction is for steady winds between 35-45 mph with gusts up to 60 mph and 3-5 inches of rain.  School was cancelled today even though Sandy isn't expected to actually get here until early this evening.  It IS blowing and raining, but neither very dramatically . . . yet.  I'd prefer to keep it that way.  I have family on the coast in Virginia and Connecticut, and our son is in southeastern MA where winds are expected to be be MUCH harder.

From the foot of the driveway . . .

In back of the house - walk in cellar door, looking westerly.

And also from the back looking toward the east.  

We will have a slider in our master bedroom going to a deck.  Behind our new house are 10 acres of woods and wetland which we also own, so we will have lots of privacy.  And a chance to see lots of wildlife.  We walked out a bit on the land last week and found a small cranberry bog.  We picked a few handfuls of berries - maybe 2 cups worth which I will use on Thanksgiving.  We saw many deer trails and LOTs of bear scat.

From the maps we are seeing, I thought you were going to escape this one. I hope you and your family come through this one just fine, and also hope your house does ok.

The setting of your new home sounds exciting.

Sending prayers your way.
