Speechless Sundays - Another Week of Progress

I thought I would use the word 'progress' in the title to alert anyone who happens to be following the ramp progress with me! (Thank you, Endre Barath, Jr.)

We are ALMOST there. We have a few more days of railing installation and then landscaping and final touches. When it warms up, I will get the ramp and the dock, both stained and be ready to move my office to the dock!!

Almost there!

Happy Sunday everyone!

What an amazing project that is, Debe.  I also like George Souto's suggestion.

Hi Barbara Todaro! We're definitely making progress! I have not been able to get out there this week as I have been busy at work but, I love spending an hour or two out there working to help get it done. I cannot wait for better weather to spend some time out there...I'm so with you, the best work environment on the property! He is very excited!

Thank you, Sharon Lee! We're super excited - it's taken a good long while for this to come to fruition but, it will have been worth every bit of effort to get him down there! The contractor is a perfectionist so, I had no doubt it would be a work of art!

I read your comment to Ray, Brian England and we looked back at the picture and both agree wholeheartedly! We are going to stain the ramp and the dock a 'beach gray' so, it really will look like it's been there forever!

It really is, Brad Thomsen! We're thrilled to get to the finish line in the next few days!

Oh, if you only knew! The engineer's design looked fantastic to me but, when the contractor started putting it together, the 'design' needed a little tweaking. He's an incredible perfectionist and very detailed. So, we knew that if a change was needed, the two would put their heads together and amend the plan. It's been a work in progress and a labor of love, Michael Jacobs!

I don't know how 'busy' it will be out there through the week, Kat Palmiotti but, I can totally see myself out there during the spring months! I love working outdoors - as long as it's not noisy!

And, we can't WAIT! We're almost there...

LOL I don't want anyone jealous - I invite anyone who is, to come join me on the dock! I may have some adult beverages waiting for you, Wayne Martin!

Definitely, Roy Kelley! I think we'll be able to enjoy it 9 months out of the year. Even in the cold, I think we can have our little fire pit down there to keep us warm!

Yes, we inquired about a lift and at $35K, we thought a ramp would be more practical - and last forever...and be something EVERYONE can use! This will be the first time he's been any closer than the sidewalk to the stairs. It's been a long time coming and I will admit to probably being more excited for Ray than he is to get down there! I read your sweet comment to Ray and he agrees with you about the quality of life. Thank you for the wonderfully kind comment,  Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP! ❤️

Well, I'll definitely have to stay muted - the geese can be loud at times! LOL

Oh, I totally agree, Ed Silva! We spend so much time working when we're home, it'll be a nice 'break' while working - for sure!

Hi Jim Paulson! I showed your comment to Ray. We both got a good chuckle out of it - and you have no idea how close to the truth that really is - especially after a couple of drinks! LOL

It really has turned out beautifully, Myrl Jeffcoat

And, yes, I'm going to have to see what we can do about a slide - I really do like that idea!!

Hi James Dray! Well, we thought so too but, the rain kept us from finishing last weekend. And, during the week, volunteers are not as plentiful (including myself!) so, the contractor is alone working now. Things go much quicker with a group of us helping him. It's really been a lot of fun too but, I'll be SO glad when it's done!
