This beautiful log cottage features custom artwork from RailingArt.com as an inlay in the stairs and on the indoor and outdoor balcony panels. The beautiful nature scenes, which feature an owl, trees with detailed leaf patterns, and a moose with wildlife, help to accent some otherwise unnoticed parts of the cottage. There are over 30 balcony panels used on the exterior of the cottage, running along the back railing as well as two second floor balconies. There are 9 more panels used for the railing inside of the cottage.
In recent years, the program has faced financial instability and has needed last-minute infusions of money to fill financing gaps. But this year, the City Council raised the amount set aside for the program beyond what the mayor’s office had originally proposed, which was $8 million. Corey Johnson, the speaker of the City Council who had made additional funding for the program a priority, called the increase “a really big deal for creating more certainty and security moving forward for the organizations that do this work.”
