The latest house pictures.
Closer and closer...there's a good chance that by next weekend some appliances will be installed, floor will be in, and there will be fence. Good fences make good neighbors, don't you know.

This has been an insane week--the steady drumbeat of house issues, suddenly punctuated by news of SFC Scott Smith's death in Iraq.

For now, enjoy the pictures. I'm trying something--filling the pond from the well on a 50% duty cycle with a timer. Another eventual possibility is pumping water up from the small spring-fed pool below the dam. I think that would only work as a "topping off" solution, though, once the pond is full. I could try to figure out what rate the spring-fed pond replenishes at, though, and pump at just under that rate. All of this may fit under the category of "Don't mess with mother nature." Anyone else with experience filling a pond, please speak up. I put a call out to the fire department last week but haven't heard back yet.

[EDIT] Oh, wait, wait, WAIT, one more thing...can someone please explain to me how we now have two 'barn cats" and we have not yet broken ground on the barn? Freak me the blank out.

Paint and trim. I think the paint turned out fairly well - the color is "Capri Coast".

very difficult to photograph. Now that the rooms are closed in I'm starting to wish for a wide-angle lens.

The trim and log siding are pretty much done. Doors are being staged here; they'll be up by next weekend.

Just because. Unfortunately, I never really got the vantage point I wanted. This was actually a double rainbow, but I couldn't get the other in the photograph, and I don't think it would have shown up.

tell him to get his butt over here..

with a masonry ramset, wall guides, 2x4's and such-like...

he wants an Imperial Suite, let him come build it.


or, in a less testy translation: house first, suite later...
