OUR HOUSE  IS A VERY, VERY FINE HOUSE
WITH TWO CATS IN THE YARD.
LIFE USED TO BE SO HARD,
BUT, EVERYTHING IS EASY 'CAUSE OF YOU.
(David Crosby & Graham Nash)

We just could not envision ourselves
having to care for a lawn,
and opted for eighty feet tall
poplar, oak, and birch trees.

THE TREE SHADOW IS OUR DECK LINE

Is it any wonder we would want to live in such beauty and peacefulness?

 We literally camped out inside the house...
Early spring and still COLD...and no electricity except a generator.

This was our toilet..used by all workers
Since the kitchen/dining area had a ceiling with a floor above, we enclosed it with a piece of "house wrap" material. The area where the stairs were to go became our shower, a canvas with a plastic pan and camp shower bag. Our bed went under the kitchen sink window.  And the table was actually in the dining area... with our camp stove. Bought ourselves a double burner construction heater and small propane tank, and we were in business.
The kitchen/dining area was enclosed

to make our living quarters
