Upon Andy & Rex's Arrival. No snow and new timber frame.
The gang went into Lake Placid and visited some Olympic venues. Here Rex and Juliana are skating on Olympic oval in front of my High School. They also went down the bobsled run!
With Tosh as my co-pilot, I came up on Tuesday with Ruby and Samantha, who was visiting from NYC!
Rex and Andy set up scaffolding in Great Room onto the stairs to place a wooden bar up that would hold up a canvas piece Andy had commissioned from Phil Parsons, Ms. Bev's talented brother.
As the boys worked hard, I was entertaining our second round of guest. Carol and Juliana left as they had other NYE plans and Suzie Falardeau, her children and a friend, and Cathy came for the night. I got them working on the puzzle pretty quick.
Here Cathy and the kids relax in the Great room before heading back to Bville. and I prepare for round three of guests!
Here's the Bville gang before they headed out!
The Bville Gang in the newly Erect Chapel and in front of Castle.
Some new details. This is the entrance at ground level
Each room now has a shield on door with each piece of chess set to denote the rooms. ie. King, Queen, Pawn, Knight, Bishop, Rook. Andy made the shields with his 3 D printer at office and painted them to get distressed pewter look. how cool is that.
Projector and screen are up and working in Fungeon. Rex was watching Game of Thrones, session Three
Tosh was keeping him company. Gotta get some comfy old furniture for down there.
This is all the walk through stuff just piled on the kitchen island. Yes, I did tell you I had more guest coming that evening and I was stressed abit at the mess of this all, but I talked myself down and was fine.
Kristi, my dear friend and Samantha's Mom, drove up from NYC to spend NYE with us. Most of our best NYE have been with these girls, and Buddy, their dog, too.
Aw,an usie with me, Kristi, and Samantha
and the boys and Maria got right back to work in the kitchen spackling.
They worked crazy hard on this and got it finished. Andy says there will be a light coat of gray paint on it.
The boys got really messy. Rex ran to shower to get cleaned up. Maria didn't get one drop on her clothes. Next set of guests arrived. Lucy, my college room mate, her Husband, who I introduced her to, and their kids, Trent, Bianca, and Olivia
I didn't get out of my PJ's NY day!
Trent carried the tree out like it was a twig.
So strong and he got it right around corner and out of there.
Boys waiting for girls to bring over canvas painting to put up on hanging rod.
A video of it, sorry it is sideways and dark.

Everyone worked really hard on puzzle and we finished it before we left! 3 months, part time when there, 10 missing pieces.
