Happy New Year 2017

As the new year arrives we decided to enjoy it quietly so we loaded the trailer and headed for our property. 

On the drive up we squished a poor unlucky squirrel. He second guessed himself when crossing the road. We could see the panic in his eyes as he tried to return where he came from. Missed the front tires, missed the back but then thump the trailer tires got him. We both looked each other and awed………. poor guy. We felt so bad. Rest in pieces ;(

In opening up the house we discovered a poor bird. We boarded it up when we left and it tried to get out through the window. Ut oh the window was closed. So rest in one piece poor bird. 
Upon arrival at the house we unloaded the trailer as a storm is due tomorrow. We unloaded cabinets for the storage corridor. One wood burning stove sits in its place but still on a pallet. Our refrigerator sets in its place still in the box. Our new stove sits in place waiting to be uncovered. 

We walked around the back of the house to see if the solar panels were still standing as while we were gone we had some heavy winds. You be the judge. 

No silly…… half of them did not blow away. We were shorted 8 rails and pipe clamps to finish the second half. We were so happy to see all what we installed still standing tall and proud. Ready to do work as soon as Martin flips the switch. 

Our neighbor John is custom building our doors and windows. We stopped by to see the progress. OMG. So beautiful. 

John has done such an amazing job. The detail work is impressive. 


We are so lucky to have such wonderful neighbors. 

Tomorrow brings insulating the ceiling and installing the tin. Martin is going to run some wiring so we can test light bulbs. Nice way to start the New Year. 

Till next time……
