Yes, right, it's been a long time since I blogged last.... I should really stop making any effort to apologize for the long gaps between posts, as it seems to be the norm for me.

And, as usual, a hell of a lot has happened since the last post.

This was the day we poured the concrete countertop which would come to serve as our kitchen table, dining table, reading table, project table, etc. etc. etc.. All the rebar and formwork is ready.....

Now skip forward a few weeks and......

We're IN!!! YES, it's true!!, we got our final inspection and we have moved in!! Christina took all these pictures during the few hours when the house was still empty, before we started filling it with all our crap from our previous lives. The two pictures above show the same countertop, the centerpiece of the kitchen and in some ways of the whole house.

Two views of the East wall. The first pic above shows the view that we wake up to every morning from the sleeping loft. The bottom pic shows the same wall seen from the ground.

My room. Now full of stuff. It will never look like that again.

Don't take the small things for granted, oh ye city dwellers!

As of this post, we have been living in the house for about two weeks. Showering! cooking! sleeping! using the internet! It's pretty amazing. The bad news is that moving in is quite a lot of work, too. Christina and I realized that by the time this whole escapade is over and things settle down, we will have been moving for about two years!!

All that time away from my shop is starting to take a toll on me. At some point in my life I realized that if I'm not making something, I get cranky. Well, I haven't really made anything for almost a year and a half, now, and I'm getting cranky. Luckily, we broke ground on the shop this week, and will hopefully pour the slab in about three weeks!

So start making your plans to come out and help build the shop, everyone! You know you want to! See you soon......
