Putting Our Stamp On This Place...

...An update from the Cape #capepallarenda

Yes it's been six months since our last update, but we haven't been lazy, just crazy buzy. Start of another school year, both of us working, and me committing all available spare time to completing my post graduate finance studies. Reno works have been intermittent at best, but we have been plodding along and now are ready to tackle the remaining jobs on 'the list'. 

But we do feel like we are finally putting our stamp on this place so thought it would be good to look back at how this house has evolved over time (there's going to be some obvious variation in photo quality due to changes in technology, but I'm sure you get the idea)...

First photo we ever saw of our Cabin by the Sea.

What we saw on Google street view before we even looked at the house

How it looked when the original owners sold the house to the owner prior to us

How it was when we started construction of the extension 
(building in the garage)

Posts being dug starting construction of the Dutch Gable Carport

Footings being poured

Posts going in

Trussses going up and sheeting going on

(Glenn Blanco from Total Span completed the carport supply and construction for us - 
and we can't recommend them highly enough)

Finito... for now!

As you can see our house continues to evolve, and I'll try and be a little more frequent in updating its progress, now that I've got some more free time.

Cheers, Col

PS. No matter which way you look at it, life is better at the beach ! #cabinbythesea #lifeisbetteratthecape
