The view from upstairs deck.

Udate Long over due

I realize it's been years since my last post but I feel like I need to complete the story of our house. Since my last post we finished the house moved in for a year, I lost my job, we fought with the bank, we moved out and then ended up having to short sale it. Big Bummer. Life goes on though and I think it was for a reason. We moved to Redwood Valley and are now in an affordable dwelling next to some more awesome neighbors. I thought I would put pictures up of the house as it was before we sold it. It was never completely finished.

The DaVinci Code?

Rich and Bob drew the layout for the spiral stairs on the floor first.

Bob the stair master

Thanks to Bob Mier our stairs were calculated correctly. Rich and Bob burned some major brain cells trying to figure them out.

Front of House

The blue tubing you see is for the electric. That is the garage door on the bottom.

Rich Stacking Bales

Our Dog Koda was loving the play time in the straw too.

Front room

Is this a house or a barn?

Mason and Marley had a blast with the bales. Fort making time, jumping into hay too.
What fun this process has been for them. You are looking at the West facing wall. The opening to the left is where the french doors will go.

Filling it in

This is the front room wall looking southwest. That is a window frame in the middle. On the outside is metal fencing.
