ben’s dogwood tree

ben with his great grandpa’s (also ben) dogwood tree brought to boston by grandpa russ and grandma pat

we’ll find a good place at the new house for the dogwood to grow up along with ben

here's our other dog-with-wood for brains. he likes to drop his ball into the leaf pile and then find it.

uncle rick came to visit and finally meet ben!

still not ready to move, but close!

the maple tree and boston ivy show their autumn colors

oh geez what could he be working on now...

tah dah – the vintage glass mailbox and French blue enamel house number

our optimal solar panel roof – flat, white, and unobstructed (except by clouds)!

my brother rick came to help out for a week

we stained a LOT of windows

yes, A LOT of windows

and finished the kitchen cabinets

vintage holophane lights from an old warehouse light up our studio/shop space

the contractor’s awesome table saw...drooool

cassie and zoe come to check out their new home for the first time

zoe quickly found her new favorite spot to sleep.
