Latest House Pictures!|
This is prettypammie posting as happypete, who has gone off to dig a trench.
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.
Q's room, side wall. It occurred to me (Pam) that we need to buy closet doors before too long.

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.
Inside of prow - the log siding is going up!
Library - the column is drywalled in.

Our propane tank has been buried

I put down grass seed and watered.

"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.
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.
We'll have to fence these off.
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.
|View across riding arena|
Again, this non-packed part is past the end, I think.

What looks like tall grass (the yellowish stuff) is where I couldn't mow close enough to the silt fence. Can't wait to get off that grading bond...

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.
Wow, I hadn't realized you were having full horse facilities, too...
it's easier to just have it here if we have the room than trucking the poor beasty off to lessons all the time, n'est-ce pas.
I wonder if we can afford all this?

I certainly hope you can, it would be bad to have come this far and have to stop...
