The construction adventure continues! The projects of today are trim around the windows, doors etc. and stairway tread installation as well as hardwood flooring.
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!!
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.
Today we have the trench dug, the new electrical 400 amp service wiring in the ground and the trench already filled in. Almost like nothing happened 🙂
Batten down the hatches!!! Irene is on her way and we have been getting ready. Yesterday we had the 2nd floor and cupola windows boarded up. Of course timing is everything…because we have been planning a bridal party for 25 women with the mother of the bride and several of her friends…and Irene decides to join the party. As you will see in some pictures below they are boarding up the windows while we are setting up the veranda for the bridal shower!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A picture below of the finished product with The Captain’s Manor Inn all boarded up. Who knew staying at our bed & breakfast could be such an adventure 🙂
