Long Time, No Blog.

It has been a while since I have updated my blog. Life has been good and steady progress is being made on the house. The photo from above is how things looked when I left for my brothers wedding in mid-October. The next few pictures bring the place up to date. I still have a ton of work to do before I can call the place finished, but I can certainly see a light at the end of the tunnel. I just had the last of my electrical work finished and should be installing kitchen cabinets around Christmas. Once the cabinets are in I can get the water system more outhouse by mid-January!

Utility closet.

Carpeted stairs, painted kitchen, partially finished floors, dry wall...things are moving along!

Ptarmigan on the Dome-

Josie retrieves a snow chicken for us as we finish up an afternoon of bird hunting.
We have had a few fun outings and we have had enough success to experiment with some fun ptarmigan recipes.

More Fun at Tolavana-

Dayna, the dogs and I walked into Tolovana Hot Springs to meet up with some friends. The weather was fairly brutal, serving up wind chills below -50 degrees. It was certainly a adventure and I think we all had fun.

Dayna is trying to protect her exposed skin on the dome.

We were treated with some great views and a nice sunset as we headed out of the back country.
