Party At Woodstone!

Yesterday we had a party for all who have worked on our house and barn for the last two years..quite a crew.

We had Christie Leigh Bellany come sing and had Redbones cater with ribs,chicken,beef,cole slaw,mac and cheese,baked beans. Bill had a slide show of about 500 pictures from the very beginning until now. I think about 100 people came and went-we had a perfect 70 degree day for it,which was amazing for the end of October in Massachusetts.

Bill spoke about how wonderful the architects Jen Hart and Jen Lyford from Hart Associates have been to work with,and also the landscape architect, Lili Morss. Without Dave Jenkinson of Jenkinson Homes we would not be proceeding so well-he is amazing at organizing it all. Andre LeBlanc gets major credit for taking on the barn project in the winter last year and doing such a great job.

5 weeks to go on the house, barn is finished!

Waking At Woodstone

When you wake up here on the property as we did today for the first time(we are living in the barn) it gives you a really good idea of just how much goes on in the day! There are landscapers putting in boxwood,people putting in the brick paths in the front of the house, people putting in the front stairs, people finishing up the mudroom, people painting(two bedrooms are painted!),people putting up molding and millwork and so on-crazy!

The yellow in bedroom is C2 Paints Canvas,the brown is London Stone by Farrow and Ball. Exterior house color is Pratt and Lambert Agate Gray. All trim is Ben Moore Wayside Chamber White,which is actually a discontinued color.
