sketches and anticdotes about my interests and travels
Wednesday, 3 April 2013
The guys are starting to deck the third floor. I wasn't comfortable to climb up there to sketch so contented myself with the view form the second floor. This will be the view from the rear bedroom. The Hintonburg roofscape is charming and the Peace tower is quite prominent. We realized recently that the views from the roof deck will include not only Parliament Hill, but likely the Gatineau Hills as well. Spectacular.
Marty and Mike, the two lead carpenters, had hung the trusses for the third floor and rear deck and had just discovered a slight discrepancy in the side wall lengths - like an inch over 40 feet. True to form the conversation was, "find out where the mistake is and we'll fix it". Cabinet making 30 feet off the ground.
