In like a Lion…

Whew! What a night. Another Nor'easter ripped through here overnight, complete with thundersnow! The snow was wet and heavy, and we lost a number of trees and branches.

Wide plank pine floors throughout. Ceilings are vaulted and open, showing the beams and beautiful mortice/tenon work throughout with a loft over the kitchen area. …
