The house is mostly done
So the structure is pretty much complete and we've moved in, hurray! It was a long, difficult at times process. But it feels really good to look at the results.
Right now we're actually in Kansas City visiting family, so I'm trying to take advantage of having internet available 24/7.
Maybe someday in the future I'll do a step by step "here's how we built it post". For now I'll just say, I'm happy we have a place to stay warm and spread out a little. I'm always looking towards the next thing that needs to be done. Next year I'd like to plaster the walls and finish the floor in the house. I'd like to get started on a combo bathhouse/greenhouse. Miles is going to build a recording studio/guest area. I'd like to really get the garden going and start planting fruit trees. I'd like to get some animals, definitely a dog, and maybe some quail for eggs.
When we get back to the house in a week or so, we'll start doing Christmas decorations, then we'll hunker down for the winter. I requested about 20 or so seed catalogs this year, and I'm really looking forward to some intense catalog studying.
Hope everyone is well, I definitely am.
