Q's room, back of house. Our trim carpenter had to cut a hole in the drywall bc the HVAC contractor didn't register the fact (in spite of our telling them) that the space in there isn't insulated. Now they have to come back and wrap the ducts.

You can't see it well in this picture, but a lovely beam of light was coming down from the skylight and lighting up the MBA. I really love that skylight.

"medium brown" or "medium bronze" or whatever it was clearly was the correct choice! I made this decision based on the description of the roofer and some vague "swatches" online.
Riding arena

I wanted something large enough for cantering and small jumps - so this is our 100x140 foot arena. It may look a little larger than it really is, since there was some grading down around the sides to cover the septic distribution box, etc.

Here is the view that Pete wanted, with him in the far corner. Our lumber is visible down to the left, as well. The dirt is beautifully packed; it makes me inclined to spend more $ putting at least a good base down on it.

back toward house. Just because. No good reason. Rather a lot of lens flare.

This unpacked part will actually go back to being pasture. It will be the entry to the near paddock.

We had it sprayed for broadleaf. We were warned that it might turn rather brown, being sprayed at this time of year. However, I think the spray did its job, bc the grass looks quite nice. Even if it _is_ fescue.
