    No but I did the footers of his house back when doing manual labor.
    Those footers alone were something to see on that lake shore.

    I 'll give you my vote...footers that tall would be something to look at. Is it Canandaguia lake or Ontario lake, the view has got to be out of this world...

    It was down along the south east side of Conesus I think. I don't remember now.
    I was a carpenter for an outfit that did commercial and industrial buildings.
    We got called in to help with Danny's footers which were the toughest I'd ever seen.
    They actually were not that tall. They were drilled into the bedrock which was exposed and
    stepped all over the place. They went from lake side to about twenty or thirty foot up and across the bank.
    Trully the best part of the whole house.
    I don't know about the rest of the shack but there's quite a photo collection of just them footers somewhere.

    Here's some pics of my Clydesdale, couldn't get all the "kids" in one (I guess there is a theme of dogs in pics here). Beautiful post+beam great rooms with the field/riverstone chimneys guys. Just curious if there is any preferential treatment (extra points) for DIY'er or hired out installation?

    What a co-winky-dink.
    I pulled the picture off of google image and for some reason, someone thought it was from Danny Wegmans house.
    I pulled that other picture off google image of Danny Wegmans house and it does look like the same chimney.
    Besides, after what I learned writing for magazines, I don't subscribe to any now.

    I vote for wendell's hearth. Pretty impressive tile work for a first timer! And I happen to know he could really use some Super Cedars!! ;-)

    Here is our cookstove that we installed in Nov. 09'. Sorry about the bad cell phone pic. Last winter we went through 9 cords of wood in our wood boiler and 400 Gal. of oil. from May 08' to May 09'. We have been using the cookstove as our primary heat this year and it looks like we will be at 5 1/2 cords of wood between the cookstove and wood boiler and 80 gal. of oil from may of 09' to may of 10'.
