    I used to swim in Candlewood Lake. Nice spot there.

    Do you culture the mushrooms to grow there or did it just happen?

    My family trailered our 14' sailboat to Candlewood lake back in the late 70s. Haven't been on the water there since then. I have had a few drinks at Down the Hatch over the years though.

    Hog,
    How can you live with such a small garage? :) Very nice!

    The garage has no floor. It is loose stone "B" until I can afford to get concrete poured.
    Makes for a PITA to pull the bike in and out of, but I manage.

    I would give up a floor for 3 bays!

    Actually the garage is as deep or a lil deeper than it is wide. If I needed, I could fit 6 maybe 8 cars in it. Of course I don't need all that. But it is what came with the house.
    Will be real nice once I ever get a floor poured. Even room for a man cave in the back.

    Ah, homes on the water - make me jealous!

    But I do have a 3 1/2 gar garage! We had a 2 car, but I wanted to build a shop....my wife said OK as long as it matched the house perfectly.....
    So I did all the GC and some of the work myself...built it fairly cheap.

    We never really thought about having a big house, especially not as our 'starter' home; but.....

    This is how it sat when we purchased it in April '10 (after nearly 9 months of real estate hassles.....)
    [​IMG]

    The outside somewhat completed circa Oct. 2010, (except for extensive landscaping, shutters on the side windows, ceiling under the porch, painting/staining the deck, cleaning under the deck, latice, etc., etc., etc......) Since this picture, the beam on the porch roof has been wrapped in coil stock as have the facia boards on the roof, invisi-vent soffit installed on the porch and house:
    [​IMG]

    It doesn't look like much was done, but thats 14' of new sill under the front door, 3 new doors, re-posted the whole deck (17 6' holes, 3/4 stone, cement pads, new PT 6x6s...) new decking on the North (right) side, new light fixtures and all new siding under the roof.....

    I'm not even going to bother telling stories about the inside, just that we are hoping to have it "done" by the 1 year mark......

    Heres a Christmas Pic too. I couldn't resist!

    Our second home/camp. 150 years old and still has bark on the full log floor joists. Our wood stove is installed there. And the red homestead.

    Great homes folks. I too am jealous of the waterside homes.
    I am happy with the woods though I suppose.

    AV beautiful porch, mine is set up for a partial wrap around, but again, no funds LOL.
    And, the P/O put the porch boards over top of 1" blueboard insulation. So the boards will have to come off and the insulation cut out where the boards need to go against the house wall.
    He used twisty nails too, damn ahole LOL.

    We sailed to Down the Hatch on our Laser sailboat. We like this place very much.

    Here are a few pics from various seasons, including a couple of the boys going out to the woods to get firewood and one of our Woodstock stove. We love not being able to see any neighbors... we are very blessed.

    Nice place 'ya got there.
    We used to go fishing at Parshallville lake (if you want to call it that) MANY moons ago. I've heard there's a cider mill there now at the dam.

    thats less then 5 minutes from me. you are right there is a cider mill at the dam. they have done a pretty nice job of preserving the dam and building. you probably wouldn't even recognize the area anymore. some much has changed in 5-10 years around here.

    With all the snow, it looks like it is in New England instead of Georgia.
