One more quick task that was completed recently involved addressing the old peeling leaky plywood bulk head.
The new bulkhead.
Nate and Darryn used Douglas fir tongue and groove beaded planks for the doors. This is a material that should hold up to deep New England winters. Very similar material has a long pedigree of usage for many applications extending back to the 19th century. To paint the new doors, we used a classic very black green color that is used regionally for features such as this, also suggested by Nate and Darryn. The color is Black Forest Green by Benjamin Moore.
For those who wondered what is behind those bulk head doors...
