Boiceville Cottages Update, 4/2014

14 04 2014

I had an alumni event in Ithaca, and my drive in always take me in via 79. The Boiceville Cottages are about a mile out of the way, so I had just enough time before dinner to stop by and shoot a few photos.

Unfortunately, spring is also mud season in upstate, and that became all too clear when I stepped out of my car on the edge of the parking lot, and the mud went halfway up my dress shoes. Luckily, I had a second, not-as-dressy pair on hand, but this is definitely not the time of the year to be walking around in nice shoes.

Compared to my last time through Boiceville in December, all the foundations laid at that time are now occupied by homes that are largely complete, with exterior finishes and detail work underway on the newest cottages. No more foundations have been laid, so I’m unsure if more are planned for this year; some areas had been cleared, but it looked to be used for the staging of construction equipment.

Interesting to see the progress. Gotta say I always expect to see these guys standing in front of one of those places:

Might have made for a nice little New Urbanist cluster if the houses were slightly less liliputian. As it is, though, it looks like a cult compound.

[…] bad about the Boiceville updates, because I have the remarkable ability to make the place look unattractive every time I take photos, due to¬† it always being grey or cold when I pass through. In the past […]
