Good morning friends and family. It’s going to be a beautiful day. Rise and shine!
So busy little bees we were.
We have to go home for a few days. Deliver some Suns Dancers costumes, two volleyball games, one ASU game, laundry, mow the lawn then back up here Friday to build some more.
So till next time……
Our day started early. Leaving the Moho by 5 am driving 2 hours. Had breakfast, dropping off the rented escavator, driving another two hours back to the Moho.
We jumped right into the trenches doing the final cleaning. Layed the fast foot lining and then dropped in and tied up the rebar.
Tomorrow 10 am comes the concrete. 16 yards!!! Wahoo!!!
Till next time…….
No rain day yea! Martin dug some more. I moved the excavated dirt. Ron cut down a couple of dead trees and brushed a few more.
Then we really got busy.
Yes our turret. The earth ship concept needs an airlock entrance. We were just going to build a lean type addition but then Martin came up with this brilliant idea of a turret. It will be two stories with a spiral stair case. The upper level will be a place high up where we can spy on the animals. Such a neat idea and architectural eye catching addition to our unusual house. I am the luckiest girl in the world.
Till next time …….
Ron, Martin and I were able to frame up the foundation for the green house.
Martin and I ran up to the deck so I could get a better signal and holy crap Martin saw a herd of elk crossing the valley below heading towards the house site. So while I tried to get the blog done he ran down to put the SD card back in camera. He decided to sit at the house to wait. Tap tap tap. And the holy crap again he was able to see this big and tall elk approach the hay. He couldn’t believe his luck.
Till next time…..
This morning we started our day checking out the hay to see if the animals came to eat the new hay. Sure as apple pie they did. They even left a deposit in our road.
We encountered a few new creatures today too!
Today so far has been a beautiful day. So thank you for your prayers.
Yesterday while Martin tended to business. (Damn work seems to get in the way but it pays the bills). I decided to deal with the standing water behind the house. So got the shovel and started digging a polish drain.
This morning no standing water. Yea!
Today we were able to take the ripped tarp off the roof and then cut the roof down to the correct size.
We also layed out the green house.
Now we are picking up the escavator so tomorrow we can dig the foundation for the green house.
These are our two steps forward!!!!
During the summer we bought two bales of hay for the animals to feed on. Only to be disappointed with no animals coming by to enjoy the fresh hay. Well to our surprise they came while we were gone.
Till next time…..
Last night when we arrived in the rain. We rushed to unload our goods into the Moho. Cold and wet Martin turns on the heater to warm our cold bones. Hummmmm it’s blowing cold air. Isn’t a heater suppose to blow warm air. Hummmmm no gas coming out the stove either. Hummmmmm oh crap. Forget it for the moment. Crawl in bed to get warm. It’s always something!
In the morning light we were able to access the storm damage. Well the house still stands but hummmm is there suppose to be a lake in the house. Like a NO!
The new lift arrived. This one goes outside so we can do the siding!
Tomorrow is a trip to get the excavator. We have trenches to dig. We feel with all this rain that we take two steps forward then 10 steps back. Please pray for no rain for the next three weeks as we got poop to do.
Till next time…..
