As the winter continues to be mild we are VERY thankful. The exterior walls of the Inn have been opened into the new addition as the framing of interior walls, rough in plumbing and rough in electrical begins. Needless to say it is quite dusty and drafty, we can just imagine how cold it would be if it were a typical winter:)
Thought you might enjoy some pictures showing the breakthrough and also some of the new rooms being framed out.
We are very pleased that as part of our Inn expansion we will be adding a wonderful piece of art to the Canopy room. The Captain’s Manor Inn has wonderful original windows with plantation shutters that we have worked hard to maintain as we renovate and add on to the property. In the Canopy room we are in the process of taking out the old bathroom and an old closet and that space will now become part of the living area of the bedroom. We are also adding on a new bathroom which will feature custom tile work and a large 5 x 4 foot shower. To do this work we are adding to the back of the room and we have decided to keep the old window and plantation shutter but to create a work of art highlighted within the window as specialized in by Robin Pearson. We will keep you posted on the progress but in the meantime here are some pictures what has been taken out and some initial work by Robin as well as an example of her work from another project. Enjoy.
