Working on the Land

Our archives for July 2004 capture places we visited on our first trip to Newfoundland, where we were teaching a Summer School for Mount St Vincent University as part of their M.Ed program.

One of the photo sequences in the July 2004 archives was blogged under the post title of 'a nice place for a picnic'. As it happens, the piece of land in Bottle Cove that we photographed was for sale, and we were fortunate enough to be able to buy it. We contracted to buy it on first sight, but at the time did not know if everything would go through -- although we hoped it would. And it did.

This year we were lucky enough to be asked back to teach another course in the MSVU program, and this time we arrived to a surveyed but overgrown site. During the past year we had pondered how to start and gradually arrived at the idea of beginning with a 10 metre by 5 metre barn style shed that would take vehicles on the ground floor and have hobbying space on the second storey (in the loft). Our friend, Alton, who began as the real estate agent who sold us the land, had found us two excellent local contractors: Gary and Ray Evoy, who live in Benoit's Cove, between Corner Brook and Bottle Cove. So we planned to clear the land so that they could make as much of a start as possible on the project.

The following sequence of pix shows the Cove on good behaviour, and gradually works through some clearing activity and ends with what had been done by the time we reluctantly had to leave. With luck the barn will be built during the next 6 weeks or so. That will leave a year in which to save toward building the cottage that will accompany the barn. It is a big project, but a good start has been made.

At this stage it looks as though we will be back to teach two courses next July-August, so that will create an excellent opportunity over the best part of 3 months to really push things ahead. Meanwhile, this is where things are at to this point.
