Monday Breakfast: the Francis House version of “Smørrebrød”
Eggs of many kinds, cooked many different ways. I happen to enjoy hard boiled eggs with the yolks a tad runny and ALWAYS accompanied with my obssession, crunchy sea salt (Brittany or Anglesey).
Two weeks ago, we posted 2 potential cabinet colors for the kitchen. There was an equal vote for both. Hence, Richard and I had to go back and choose a period style of cabinet that would still be befitting of the era of the house but in a color that we both agree on. White…
The deciduous tree we would like to have at the entrance of the Francis House. Imagine… four of these, in each corner of a “square” and an old style fountain in the center. Wouldn’t that be so welcoming ?
A super close up shot from the scaffolding showing the new insulation installed between the trusses.
The balloons are a frequent sight in Calistoga but on special days you get a quadruple treat. Simple breathtaking.
An underside view of the overhang gives a new perspective of all the (frontal) truss work.
A stone was custom carved from the remaining loose stones to fit into the area where there was a missing one.
SDI Insulation started work today. Their work is limited to the 3rd Floor as the 2nd and Ground Floors have natural stone insulation. This should be done by tomorrow and then the roofers take over to create the long awaited (Mansard) roof. Dear Sun, glorious sun, please stay !
Myrtle Street in the Tenderloin…we were doing a walking tour and voila… that street looks familiar but we’d rather be in the same street in Calistoga.
