Summer Sun, Glorious Days
The exterior has been completed for this year, ready for the winter. Next spring we will begin the process of landscaping and growing our own vegetables.

  June 28, 2002 - The daisies have come back all around the house. In the next two months the external sun shades will be constructed in front of this, the south face of the house. Also, the wind turbine and solar photo voltaic (PV) panels will be installed on this, the south side of the house.  
  June 28 , 2002 - The north side of the house from inside the car port. You can see the glulam posts both holding up the roof but also protruding on each side of the front door.  
  June 28 , 2002 - The north wall of the house has stucco on strawbales for the walls. The left over straw bales have come in very handy in the vegetable garden, for landscaping and for creating paths. The kids have also had a blast playing on them all winter long. We love strawbales.  
  June 28 , 2002 - Okay, it looks good so here it is again.
