Welcoming a big new edition to Paca Pride

04-16-08 - 04-17-08 Large Yurt Raising 192 Spurts of Springtime bring lots of hustling and bustling to the ranch this year and we take advantage of every good weather opportunity to its fullest.  These past two weeks have demanded flexible planning and calendar plotting as we usher in the next piece of the Paca Pride puzzle, our large Roundhouse Yurt.  It will eventually become our event space, but for now I can see our first use as an "Ag Building" when we go to shear our animals this year.

04-13-08 Installing the floor on the large yurt 033This has been a long project in the making and it fits so well in this beautiful location.  It’s amazing to look back and see the progress; seems just like yesterday that we were staking out the area.  Before winter set in, the order was placed with Rainier Yurts and the deck was built.  These past two weeks we worked to prepare for its arrival by installing the floor on the nice, sunny, and very warm day.  So unseasonably warm, in fact, that we got a bit of a sunburn in spots and even worked in our boxers for the afternoon.  It felt like a mini-summer!  You can check out all the photos in the uploaded photo album and see it all come together.

04-16-08 - 04-17-08 Large Yurt Raising 111 These past two days were completely devoted to a good old fashioned yurt raising.  Early Wednesday morning the crew from Rainier Yurts arrived. Our salesperson, Mark, brought Billy, the resident yurt expert installer and all-around awesome lead through the whole install process.  Accompanying them was Cheryl from Rainier’s marketing department and a film crew to capture to entire process on video for a future install DVD they were going to produce using our location.  Very exciting! 

We did some picture taking ourselves and I’ve uploaded a bunch for you to see the entire two day production from start to finish.  We even brought the llamas and alpacas down to the nearby pasture to add some ambience. Enjoy! 04-16-08 - 04-17-08 Large Yurt Raising 174
