After a week in Texas, helping my brother in law start a house, help with a little maintenance on the “Barrel Race”house, and - oh yeah the wedding - we’re back in Angel Fire and back at work.  It was a great sight to see the landscaping coming further along with the patio reconstructed (there was an issue with proper drainage the first go-around).  The patio should be finished in another day, maybe two, but it’s just the finishing touches left on it.  Our horse statues (remember the name of the house, and blog IS the Last Rodeo) arrived while we were gone and are waiting to be set.  Herman the landscaper took it upon himself to have a hitchin’ rack made for them.  Really a cool gesture on his part.  Will be greatly appreciated. All will be set in the next couple days.


Today something we have been waiting for like years, since we sold our house in Virginia ten years ago, was set in place.  A jacuzzi, set at the edge of the patio, above the slope below, with a view of the 13,000 ft peak across the valley, something in which to soak our weary bones after a day of work, is within our grasp.  We can’t wait for the company to finish the setup in another week.  I just have to make an electrical connection at the GFCI box at the house and they’ll do the rest.

Sandra has kept working on cleaning the windows, yes there are a lot of them.  I got the railings finished today on the third level and began cutting out those on the second.  Still need to get the furnaces going, but I can wait a bit.  The house is beginning to perform in the fashion that I designed it.  With the attic insulation in, the tightening of it 98% complete, the exterior foam and the passive solar, the house warms up really well in the day and remains comfortable into the morning when the outdoor temp is in the low 20’s.  Of course the weather will get colder, so I do need to get them done, but I’m really still trying to get outdoor stuff done.  With much colder temps predicted for tomorrow and 4”of snow, maybe that’ll be a good day to spend on them.
