Second round of videos and photos..
Then videos, then more photos.. So much excite!
Apologies for the shaky video.. I was really just using the camera as a flashlight, and wasn’t paying attention to the speed of movement.
And the second round of photos
Old trailer in the woods
Folk Art.> I think this might be one of the first products from this new space..
And moar still.
Videos first, and an image gallery follows!
And, the images:
REALTOR PHOTO: The Loo.
REALTOR PHOTO: Shop view. Upstairs and lower shop are servicable. Loads of tools left behind, some work, lots of hand tools too. Boat components are here, and lots of consumables.. Needs a major cleanup, but would be excellent for wood/metal work downstairs, and fine metals upstairs..

REALTOR PHOTO: North face.
REALTOR PHOTO: Front of house

View up the hill from the outhouse
MOre outhouse finery
MOAR outhouse finery.. Shaving centre too!
Front yard looking with back to house. Road close to the house but reasonably set back.
Back of shop.. Loads of windows and doors, and wood back here. Mostly junk, but some good stuff.
Wheelbarrows, junk wood pile
Rototiller.> There used to be a garden here.. condition unknown.
South face of shop More windows and junk here.
Oh, and a ladder.> South shop view
Junk wood pile looking toward back of property.
Junk wood pile. Mostly rotten, I think.. Firewood for winter anyway.
another view of the previous pile
Back of shop (east face)
Shop front door, North face
Bathtub! (I’ve already got plans for an outdoor tub by the creek.. In the meantime, this might work near the house..
Another wood pile. Dubious quality.. May still be good.
Some sort of a winching system.. Who knows what that’s for.
Back of shop again.
Can’t remember what this was, but it warranted a photo..
Old wood stove, Not Serviceable, but probably useful for burning in the yard or something.. Decoration at least.
Some really funky lawnmower contraption.. Snowblower?? And more junk. Flamable though..
Back end of Massey Ferguson
Sailboat.. I’m guessing, 15 or 20′. Mast and sail are in the shop.
Massey Ferguson Tractor.. condition unknown. Also, the old oil tank.
Back view of wooden soffets and tarping on the side of the house.. This is the east face.. Totally tarped. Condition under unknown, but suspect it’s bad.. This was the same side of the house that’s rotten..
Back (east) door to the ‘summer kitchen’ More likely a mud room and wood storge.. Maybe a shower for the dogs??
Another view of that.
East face with tarping.. South face of summer kitchen.
Summer kitchen south face.
Summer kitchen with the “front” door, and siding on the south side of the main house.
Front of the house, with half of the “Lunenburg Bump” front entry way showing on the left.
Front of house from the North side. Roof doesn’t look all that bad up there.
North Side window
Under the North side of the house.. Closest beam looks somewhat janky.. Probably needs replacing.
Another window. Condition typical of all..
North side skirting falling off. Needs replacing before winter.
View from outside to INSIDE from the crawlspace access.. Needs attention before winter.
Sorry, blurry.. Beam construction underneath the house.
Close up of the side of the house from the doorway of the crawlspace access.. This whole thing needs to b torn off.. Board right in the middle is the sill that needs replacing.. I think, maybe an 8×8″ beam would do it, or possibly an engineered beam of the same dimensions..
backed up a bit in the access, cinder block wall collapsing, needs cement and rebuilding..
Pond next door has been beaver dammed..
