Onward and Upward

I had totally forgotten that I had started this back around the end of July. Better late than never, I guess.

Our girls, Daisy (brown) and Molly (black w/brown trim) are checking out the new greenhouse foundation and floor. Thankfully, the whole thing turned out correctly the 2nd time around.  The girls approve - they like to go out here and lay in the sun. :D

Wiring and plumbing are in the works.

Even though the footprint for this house is relatively small it is still taking a lot of lumber; a lot of trees, to build this house.

We have ceilings (above). I learned that in the "trades" the ceiling is called a "lid". Go figure! 

This is the geothermal heat pump in the mechanical room - lower level of house - three wells were drilled outside to provide the necessary water flow to make this work for both heating and cooling the house and for hot water.

  1. That GT unit, plus the drilling sounds expensive! But I imagine it will pay for itself given a little time! Exciting! Lynda
