Like a wet dog in the rain…

Yup, one that’s been chased in the mud and is sopping wet…that is what it has been like these past two days up at the land.  It also was a very prompt wake-up call to the construction crew who started back to work on the house in earnest on Tuesday.  I mean it was a heavier sort of rain too.  Now the forecast says brightness is on its way from this point on.  That’s good.  But, step back to last Saturday.  We just had adventures in earth moving as the very talented grading guy moved dirt up against the foundation (see earlier entry).  That dirt is way soft still and when you add rain, well, mud!  It was a mud bowl for those boys to be moving the lumber delivery. 

Zev, the great (and the foreman) led the siege unto the falling waters and dove right into the bearing wall construction.  They got that right up by the end of the day.  So, we now should see work on the house everyday from this point on.  The goal is Thanksgiving.  They’ve got a lot to do.   Here are the latest pics from the day including a couple showing the water pouring off the tarp…did I mention wet?  Grrr…

In the meantime, I plan on remaining focused on the fencing the rest of this week.  We need to get the east side paddock and the pasture that connects to it fully fenced off first.  This way, I can go visit Mother Hildegard at Old Lady of the Rock monastery for pick up my llama boys.

    Nice space! We just moved from the Tacoma area (Ft. Lewis) to Germany this past summer. We loved WA, but love it here too. Congrats on being featured this week!
