Today we start that loooong list of renovation projects we’ve saved up all year.
So far, we’ve gotten the wallpaper down. These are the paint samples I have to choose from. We’re leaving the wallpaper on the stairs. You’ve heard me say a million times, ‘That’s what’s holding the house up.’ Plus, no worries when a 90 lb guest is trying to haul their 75 lb shopping bag up the stairs!
This is the first pass. The filler for the hole. Joint compound next up.
Tomorrow Rock will be washing the front hall to remove the wallpaper paste and then he’ll patch the dents and dings and holes. (Always amazed how many holes are in the walls from pictures that were taken down eons ago!)
Right now I’m going to pull up a chair in front of the fire and work on the last chapter of my book.
We had two new Maine postcards made up for you to add to your collection of White Cedar Inn postcards. Please feel free to take them when you’re here. These are made from photos yours truly took while we were out and about. Maybe this is my next career!
These are the postcards we had from 2014. They are still available.
Looking for winter activities in Maine? Here’s a list from us of multi-season adventures. Snowmobiling, skiing, dog sledding and more can be found here on the Maine Tourism website. Not everything on the Maine list is available in Freeport. But you can stop here on the way to there and gear up!
Make a reservation – come see for yourself all there is to do in winter in Freeport! After your day in the great outdoors, enjoy relaxing in front of the fireplace in the living room with a cup of hot cocoa and a cookie. Make plans for dinner at one of Freeport’s excellent restaurants.
Found this in one of our older guest books – original artwork from the illustrator for the movie. We have the coolest guests!
