What a great morning for a walk. Decided to go to Woods Hole which is a 3.5 mile walk from the Inn. Although it was a bit overcast it did not seem to bother the ospreys and other critters out an about. One of the great things about a walk down to Woods Hole is that once you get there you can turn around and walk on back (after a treat at Pie in the Sky) or you can decide 3.5 miles was enough and hop on the Steamship Authority shuttle bus and hop a ride back to the parking lot just a short half mile stroll from the Inn. Guess what we did

We are excited to share progress on the window art being worked on by Robin Pierson for the Canopy room. As you will see by the pictures below, Robin has taken the original window and placed the antique style map of Cape Cod within the main panes. More pictures of progress should follow in the next couple of weeks.

The weather has been beautiful the past couple of days here at The Captain’s Manor Inn which is helping us to get some important outdoor work completed on the new construction. The finishing touches are being done on the new main entrance stairs to the veranda and Kevin has been very busy creating the new brick patio at the base of the stair entrance. Needless to say his back and knees are a bit sore!
Hope you enjoy these pictures of the progess.

Hard to believe that less than 60 days are left until we reopen the Inn. The tiling of all the new bathrooms is well underway and the crown molding and wood trim is in process. The Bates room is a fun room to capture as it progresses. We posted a short video below that we hope you enjoy

Work is underway on beautiful window art for the Canopy Room. A local artisan, Robin Pierson, is being featured in Cape Cod magazine and we got a sneak preview when Robin stopped by to pickup the window last week. Please scroll down below for a copy of the article. We can not wait to show off our piece of art when it is done!!

Progress continues with the rough in for the electrical and plumbing/heating complete. It is incredible to see the amount of wire and piping that is going into the addition.
Our plumbing and heating professional is someone we used when we lived in Western Massachusetts and we are so pleased that he traveled out with his team to do our work. He is a great professional and a patriot as you will see from his truck.
Look at the intricate valves for all the plumbing lines for the new bathrooms and heating systems in the addition!!!

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.
