The backyard is now off limits as we prepare to demolish the cottage. Once the demolition is completed, and the utilities are moved, we will be able to use the backyard until spring, when the next phase of the construction begins.
There are three small plum trees next to the cottage by the back fence. These will have to be removed in order to dig the new trenches for the utilities. If anyone would like to attempt to dig these out and re-plant them in your yard, feel free! Otherwise, they will be cut down.
Thank you very much to our impromptu team that came out last Monday and got dirty moving rocks, bricks, the garden shed, and other landscape materials, and moved the rest of the stuff out of the cottage and into Dora’s garage. Thank you to Dennis, Dan, Linda, Jeff, Dora, and Mark for your time and energy!
