Since most of the paneling is done in the a-frame, we’ve started to hang things and get settled a little more. Our land is really in all its glory right now. Looking out the windows is a little painful it’s so beautiful. The leaves are filling the driveway and the trees whisper down to the ground in the breezes. The sunrises through the trees are breathtaking. It’s hard not to just walk around all day with the camera, even though the photos almost never can do it justice. I’m not complaining. I’m living in paradise.
The pressure is on now to get things done before the snow flies. We had a guy working on our driveway, but it seems like it’s going to need more than what he’s putting down to make it useable in winter. We don’t have a plow or a snowblower, one of which is going to be necessary before we know it. We have to put in septic (which due to costs, we’ll have to do ourselves – the building inspector said, “It’s not rocket science.”), bury some new propane line, bury our water line, chop firewood, and get our wood stove plumbed in. The stove was our project for this weekend. Bryan has it nearly done and it looks amazing. We put posts in the ground today to support the chimney piping outside the yurt and got the inside completely done! After the concrete sets tomorrow we just need to put up some support pieces and put the chimney up! I CANNOT WAIT to have a fire in the yurt!
