HOME STRETCH

things are really shaping up with the japanese house. it's been a while since i've shared any progress so you'll see our attire shift from season to season in this update.  

 

completing the tin shingled roof before winter

 

and then it was spring

 

time to finish the clay walls with an outer layer that includes sand

 

meantime, the wood burning oven gets the finishing touch

 

we thank colter and ann for the animals

 

and we celebrate the finished oven

 

plenty of celebration to be had. marshall even caught me in the act

 

lest we forget where we are

 

next, the windows

 

appreciating the view

 

and the reflection

 

and the details

 

finally, installing the bookmatched floor boards and securing them from beneath in order to conceal the screws – not a job for the builder with hips

in summary, this is where we currently stand. so close...
