Taking a break...
Herb's Mom. Notice Lake Kinnelon in the distance.
A perfect summer afternoon in Smoke Rise!
Love seeing the Tower in the background.
Notice that the roads are unpaved.
The foundation of 628 Mountain Road.
Herb says he regularly got to ride up and down Mountain Road on this piece of machinery. Cool!
Figuring out the dimensions of the house.
Yes, the permit says it's all official and okay to build!
Breaking ground at 628 Mountain Road in Smoke Rise! Congratulations!
Before we moved to Kinnelon, we spent a good bit of time exploring the Centex project off of South Glen Road. The roads were still being created, very few houses had been built and we were able to appreciate the vistas and scenery pre-development. That's what these photos remind me of.
