On Friday the 13th of May, we poured the very first concrete pier.
|My little garden. Red kale seen on the left (and interspersed), then Red Hot Poker, then pansies, then irises.|
|The front steps. The concrete piece will be a big planter, and my succulents that are barely hanging on will stay atop the poles. What has been cleared of gravel will eventually be concrete.|
|The living room. Please excuse the weird things lying around, today was sweeping day.|
|And this...is a preview of what is coming in the next couple of weeks. It addresses our biggest miscalculation in the construction of our home.|
In the shot of the living room you can see that we have carpeted the kitchen. This was a foot-saving measure for the winter cold, and will not be permanent! A big pretty rug may eventually go there if we can find one for a decent price, though.
