Gulf Island Building.


Oh wow, just fantastic buddy, that is beautiful and that view across the bay is unreal. If the Realtor hasn't seen this yet, boy are they going to be blown away.

I know what you mean about sweating bullets making that cut, I had to put a profile on a tangent rail I built several years back and one slip and a tremendous amount of time and work down the drain, I was doing some shaking when I finished.

The realtor has lived over on Gabriola island for many years Jim, and he visited my place last fall when Jon Thorpe came out from Toronto to look at another place on Ruxton. He sells a good portion of what goes on the island here.

It's always the first timers who walk away shaking their heads.

Thank you again. Very nearly finished now, probably about another month of work and that will be it for this place.

Next to finish will be the glass around the big hole. I have the panes for the front side, towards the windows, but not the back side, towards the bed. I should be bringing them back next week sometime. Hopefully before the realtor arrives!

Hey Keith,

Hard to imagine the end of this project is within sight. We were all hoping it would go on forever.

So what is the plan for "after Ruxton"?

Gee, have a little sympathy for the old guy, will ya? I think 16 years building here is more than enough for anyone.

But I cannot say it hasn't been a great place to live, but more so to work. Maybe the best thing here is almost NO government interference.

How long that will last remains to be seen. The powers that be have recently sent a team of engineers over here to try to figure out where a public dock might be constructed. I don't know what the local populace will think about that, nor do I suppose it will make any difference what the locals think. Governments always do pretty much what they want anyway.

I'll be offline for the next three days, back again on Thursday, so it's going to be up to all you guys to keep the thread alive while I'm gone.

Excellent, so a month or two before groundbreaking and foundation work on the next place?

Keith will you be installing curved glass or straight glass as it does seem to have a bit of a curve on that opening?

Thank you for the most generous offer, but I think I'm booked for the rest of my life already!

I don't remember seeing you on the thread before, so a big welcome and thank you for the kind comment.

There's no doubt the opening has quite a curve, but I can just imagine the cost of getting curved glass made up and then having to make up curved rails to hold it.

So straight glass glass it is with straight rails. I picked up the glass on the return trip this afternoon. Going to try to tackle the installation tomorrow.
