Thanks to Mark and Elaine, I am getting a bigger house on a bigger piece of land in a much better area, instead of buying a smaller house on a smaller piece of land by a known builder here. I pulled back a $5,000 check I paid this builder after reading their book and bought a piece of land instead.

Friends and family came out to visit and vacation over the past couple weeks, both groups working it around the balloon fiesta that’s held in Albuquerque every fall.  Weather has been a bit spotty for the festival, but they got to see the ascensions and evening festivities.  Much time was spent in Angel Fire and surrounding areas including narrow guage train excursions to see the fall foliage.


The visits were a good test of the interaction between people and house, and all went very smoothly on that front.  The last of the company left this morning before the arrival of the first real winter storm of season.  Yesterday we got the snowplow back onto the Jeep and reinstalled the side windows.  I raked out the driveway to reduce the variation of gravel so I don’t scrape it off with the plow. And I spent a couple of hours foaming the remaining holes in the garage ceiling around plumbing and garage doors.  That should eliminate cold air that was able to circulate in the ceiling and make its way into the second floor. 

Before company arrived, I got the lower section of two bunkbeds built.  Today I started on the upper bunk on one section started.  Need to cut slats for it and eventually make railings but slowly they are beginning to take shape. Ther e has been a lot of trial and error in laying them out, but what I learn on the firstwill translate into faster construction on the next ones.

Oh and the chairs for the dining table arrived.  A month early. Really wonderful construction with all mortise and tenon construction, steam bent backs and a fantastically smooth finish.  No cushions but extremely comfortable nonetheless.  

And the pool table came as well. Not much left except mattresses for the bunks.  I’ll be happy to not see the delivery trucks coming every day!
