Our House

Our House

winterhouse Holliday with Nick and Jingle

I have been building my house on 28 acres of north-facing forested Vermont mountainside since about 1983. Almost done.  Maybe.

More photos will be posted.   I do everything myself when I can- cutting trees for lumber, backhoe, masonry, carpentry, electrical, plumbing, roofing, even gas lines.  Got a cement mixer in the front yard, and a 1940 Ford9N tractor in the side yard.  My chain saw is a Husqvarna Rancher.  I get great satisfaction from building my own home.  The most unique feature is three twenty foot long skylights  (bedroom, living room, workshop) which bring light in from above, even when the woods around the house are fully leafed out.  Or maybe its the four story silo with the sauna on the first floor and the plant room on the fourth floor.

Ogunquit Beach. We got married just off this photo, halfway down the left side,
between the bridge and a house just visible.
It overlooks the tidal Ogunquit River which flows from top to bottom and empties into
the ocean right under the photo. Sorry- I do not know who to credit for this photo.
Low tide is revealing the clam beds in the river above the bridge.
Judging by the dunes, old bridge,  dune width,  etc this is an old photo.  rr
