Fulfilled Promises

May 5th, 2014 by traxlerssurfside

The construction side of the new Traxlers Surfside Cottage is now completed, as promised by the contractor, as of May 1, 2014.  After spending the week getting the cabin set up and ready for use, Debi and I are very pleased to have the cabin ready (as promised) for my parents (Cal and Beverly) to be able to spend their 69th Wedding Anniversary there today (May 5).  They spent their honeymoon at the original one room cabin on this site in 1945, and have spent the majority of their anniversaries here ever since.  Our goal from the beginning of the project was to fulfill this promise, and with the great work of Jack Mobley our contractor, cooperation from the weather, and all other things construction related, the folks are at present enjoying their day of promise to each other.   From then to now, the cabin has now changed dramatically, but the soul of this place lives on.momdad-1             momdad-2

First Visitor

April 3rd, 2014 by traxlerssurfside

Traxlers Surfside Cottage had it’s first visitor, however, the deposit he made didn’t make it to the bank.  Contractor humor aside, progress is being made towards our scheduled May completion date.  Interior trim is painted, cabinets installed and awaiting granite tops starting tomorrow.  Flooring is scheduled for the end of next week.  The views from the interior of the cabin are even better than those of the “original” cabin, and the enthusiasm projected from the construction team makes us very excited for the completed project.  Patience is a very difficult virtue at this point of the construction process.  We hope to have some interior photos very soon.

The Construction Phase at our Florence Oregon Beach Cabin

March 12th, 2014 by insideout

After nearly two years of dealing with the various bureaucracies in Lane County, we finally received a building permit, and immediately started the re-birth of our cabin on the beach.  Obviously the first task was the demolition process, which surprisingly, lasted just two days.  All of the history, everything, gone!

But, as quickly as it disappeared, the beginnings of the new Traxler’s Surfside Cottage started to emerge.  The local Contractor has been doing a great job, and progress to date has gone as expected.  From foundation to framing, little glimpses of what to expect started to show.

This is the first view from the new living room which certainly is going to achieve our first design objective – bring the ocean views into the cabins living environment.

As framing continued, and the second floor was now framed, the upper bedroom and deck views got everyone on the projects attention.

Enthusiasm to see the end product has been great, and progress continues towards our projected late April completion date.  Our hope is to have the cabin ready for my parent’s wedding anniversary (their 69th); as they have spent the vast majority of their anniversaries at the former Traxler’s Anchor.  It is our goal to allow them to have the very first at Traxler’s Surfside Cottage.

As of the first week in March, interior painting has commenced, and the exterior is ready for paint, but hinges on cooperation from Oregon Coast weather.  All of the interior materials (cabinets, doors, flooring, appliances and fixtures)  have been selected, and are awaiting the completion of the initial paint phase.  As I was writing this, an email arrived with the first exterior paint photo.  It has started today, the 12th of March.
