I was reminded recently that a year ago today tragedy happened when half of our tire wall collapsed. It took us months of working diligently to get the wall back to where it was when it collapsed. As frustrated as we are that the house isn't finished I look at what we have completed so … Continue reading The difference a year makes.

Very exciting stuff
We are very close to having the roof finished. We have even set a date of May 7 to have the roof guy come and start installing the plywood and metal onto the roof. Last weekend we finished putting up almost half of the trusses. We got stuck on how the corner of the hip … Continue reading Very exciting stuff

We have carrots, spinach, lettuce, beets, kale, and Brussels sprouts. We did not anticipate the … Continue reading This the season for planting (almost)
Back to work!!
The concrete worked! By this time last year we were repairing the first wall collapse of the season. The rain, snow, and general wet of winter had caused the tires to weaken and collapse. Not just once but twice. It took us until halfway through he summer to be back to where we were before … Continue reading Back to work!!
