It is bitterly cold out today!  After an incredibly mild winter to date the artic freeze started yesterday and is in full force today.  That has not stopped our wonderful framers from working hard to keep the addition on track.  Over the weekend Kevin and I recruited our two young adult children to form a painting production line.  The story is that we are replicating 174 brackets on the wrap around veranda and our architect had them made and shipped from Georgia.  They arrived on Friday and had to all be painted by Monday for the framer to get them on the house in preparation for the siding work to begin.  So here we are on Monday and the brackets are being attached as I write this.  Some pictures of this part of our Cape Cod bed and breakfast project are shown below:
