Marlys Hann expects work to be finished before Spring on a Garden Room/Sun Room. She writes, “It will provide a beautiful, high-ceilinged, glass-walled space which will give me access from my kitchen out to my cherished garden by the stream. It will also provide pantry storage closets, a place to sit and have breakfast with all my plants in containers, and an enlarged stone platform and steps outside of the glass French doors opening to the garden.”

You have probably noticed that Karen Levey and Larry Breakstone are doing extensive restorations and renovations on the former Jack Fulton house on Main Street which they purchased last year. Their contractor, Kevin Sullivan and his son Pat Sullivan, are working with great respect and perseverance on this challenging old house. Larry and Karen have had a getaway property on Dingle Hill since the 1970’s and also have a home on Block Island, R.I.

Jeffrey Ashton and Michael Mercurio, with their 8-year old son Ethan, moved to the hamlet of Andes in June 2006 from Maplewood, New Jersey. Michael had worked for JP Morgan Chase in Marketing Services and Jeffrey for British Airways in various capacities, each of them for 22 years. Having lived in Cambodia, Manhattan, and New Jersey, Ethan is happy to call Andes home. He is a 3rd grade student at ACS. Michael has started a home cleaning business, Country Maid Clean, and Jeffrey is working in Real Estate for Ron Guichard. They left the congested metropolitan area in search of a slower pace and more space to breathe. ~
