My wife and I are still in the planning stage, but the book has been helpful and so have some of the downloads in the download gallery. There is a lot to think about and I'm hoping my wife and I cover all the bases too.

eating breakfast tacos, staying warm while the temperature outside is a brutal -27F, the house appears to be performing pretty much as planned.  We turn the thermostats down at night to 55F and the furnace on the main level came on rarely. And unlike the rental house, where frost heavily formed on the inside of the windows at these temps, frost here is on the outside as it should be.


We’ve had three good snows so far and with the cold temps, they are making a lot of snow.  Keeping our fingers crossed that the snowy weather continues.

The wall in the lower ski room is finished and I’ll startadding the ski racks and garment baskets today.  The small table for the breakfast niche is finished. And later this week I’ll try to get some more door trim up- yes there are a few pieces remaining that had to wait until more wood was weathered and finished.

Trying to get a solution for a glass partition to separate the rental level from the stairs into the rest of the structure.  I was hoping to use a frameless method, but it looks like a sliding patio door system may be the method. Unfortunately attached to the face of the opening as the stairs are in the way on one side. We’ll see what can be designed.

Our daughter in Denver had found some ski lift chairs from Steamboat Springs that were for sale.  These had been taken out of service in the 80’s.  We bought three of them a couple months ago and went up this past weekend to get them and bring them back. They’ll probably stay in the trailer until Spring and we can make them into swings or simply seating. Sorry Cousin Dave.  We didn’t get a chance to stop in. It was a quick up and back before the storm got too bad. And we made ot out just in time.

I need to do a few things to the truck before we head out for Thanksgiving.  New headlight assemblies.  Ford’s single bulb headlamps are horrible in brightness and distance, so they are getting replaced with quad projectors.  And front brakes are getting replaced as the OE rotors are warped badly.  So the truck is on the lift warming. Thank god for a garage!

Time to quit and get to work.
