Winter is here. Christmas and New Year are past and the real “off season” has begun – but construction continues unabated on several fronts in our little village. East End and West End – the rush is on finish these projects by spring.
What I love seeing is the quality of buildings that are going up – many replacing wonderful older houses, but doing so with attention and respect to the past and with quality materials and thoughtful siting by incredible tradesman.
Before and after pictures are so intriguing. Sometimes projects look vwery similar to the original, other times you wouldn’t recognize the buildings except that they are at the same address.

I’ll be writing about many of these different projects keeping my eye on them over then few months. It’s interesting to see how development is changing th landscape but in many ways keeping it exactly the same.
