20x24ft Cape Style Cottage in ME
« on: February 07, 2009, 01:01:26 PM »
Hey Everybody,

Here is the link to my PhotoBucket account. This is the first set of pictures. You can see where I did lots of clearing and the fire from when I burned all the brush. My cottage is going to go right where the trailer is. Behind it, there will be yard until the top of the hill where I plan to plant some fruit trees. There will be more pictures to come as I make further headway. I'm waiting for the ground to thaw so I can put in the pilings. After I do, I will post pictures of that. The next set of pictures will be of my Father's smaller sister cottage that he built in Nova Scotia.

I will have many questions throughout this process and look forward to hearing everybody's input.

Nothing like some snow to make the burning safer.  Do they want you to get a burn permit in the winter?  I built a 16x24 cabin in Friendship and have a few spruce fall down each year.  You are in for a lot of fun.

Yep they issue a week burning permit or just one for the day. Stop by the fire department in and out. Your telling me the snows nice to have for burning to worries. The trees here fall down all the time, I often wounder how my woods stay woods. hahaha I got my first order set and ready to go just waiting for show to get gone I hope the first week of march I can get the tractor and auger in, so I can place pilings.

We don't need a permit now but have to wait for burn days -- I think it is good to get a jump on it as we still have a lot that didn't burn last year.  I have had a few good fires this winter - pushed the brush up with my Bobcat.
