Hi to all of the Coal Forum Members,

I had a chance to take some pics this AM. on my way out to our summer cottage. At the moment I am rebuilding the 10' X 54' deck. This all sounds easy.....but the cottage is on an Island and the only way to get to it is by water. I have moved all the lumber with my 15' work skiff from the mainland.
(Smitty, This is powered by a 30hp Yamaha 2 stroke 496cc. 8-)
The largest amount of lumber I have moved, at one time, so far are five 4" X 8" X 22" Fir stringers. :shock:

Hi Bob, Moving the lumber by hand is the hard part... Its about 100 yds to the cottage but it is also 50' up in elevation from high tide.
Moving the old deck parts to the burn pile and moving the new lumber up from the dock & boat takes most of the reconstuction time.

We have the 3/4" decking ready for instaltion in the spring..... Brazilian Cherry ( Jatoba )....
I can't bring myself to let it sit with a few feet of snow on it this winter. The old deck had Douglas Fir decking and it lasted 45 years. :shock: I hope the new deck will last that long. :roll:

I'm standing on our living room roof addition before shoveling it off-taking pics of the area all around us, after a good snowstorm winter- 2009.When it snows good, its breath taking to be up there.We're in Central Maine. A highbush blueberry orchard lies inside the fenced in area, and numerous organic raised garden beds.Thats my beloved garden-potting shed,now with an overhang addition.A small greenhouse is planned for the closer south side.The concensus here is, we wont be getting a winter like this, this year. We're still dealing with temps in the 50's for crying out loud.My *censored* willow that was dormant-came out of hiding and broke into full buds this week.Not good.We run a Harman Mark11 coal stove in the insulated cellar,that takes care of the whole house till the temps drop down quite a bit more,or the winds blow terrible.We live right across the open mountain stretch,thats given us the nickname"wind alley".Otherwise we have a Napolean pellet stove in the living room,and if life is good to us, we will have another small coal stove upstairs instead.

Update on a very long winter! The good and the bad...We have acquired our dream stove! for the living room -a used Chubby Sr. Coal stove. Now we will start buying/putting everything in place like the new chinmey- J will repaint the stove.Its in pretty good condition-but will do some upgrades to it. Out goes the pellet stove-and we cant wait till the Chubby is in and working! Quite excited about it. People interested in our house up north-so will either sell the land or the land and the house together,so I hope that pans out. "J", had a heart attack 2 weeks ago,,but is now on the mend, and doing well, and back to work part-time already.Our driveway is a muddy spring mess,but the Robins have started singing! and if we can get to the potting shed-we'll get the grill out...

I see the pic of your house is almost exactly like ours .Yes- we have heard of "stone dust" last year- and hope we can do that to fix the problem."J" is really looking forward to working on the "Chubby" soon as it warms up a bit more and steady. No sign of the geese yet-and they always land in the corn field next door for the summer.Only thing we've seen is a young fox running thru the back yard at a gallop last week.All the raised beds are uncovered,soon the *censored* willow will start sprouting!
