Now for a little catch up on the house construction!
Do you recognize my signature view of the mountains?
Foundation poured, and floor joists going up , photos just taken less than an hour ago, during the workers’ lunch break.
Then a few hours later….
Watch this space, things are really happening now. Next week construction starting on the road (we’re forced to put in a road to rebuild!) and also starting next week will be the posts & beams of the timberframe going up!

Emma is thirteen & a half today!
Yesterday I took Emma out for a little walk, although not very far. I’ve been rather quiet about things going on with Emma, but now she is on the mend, I will mention that she seems to be slowly recovering from a serious illness which came on in the first days of September rendering her completely unable to move on her own, and with very little appetite. I thought I lost her and was enormously miserable for weeks as I nursed her , but now she’s able to walk a little on her own, getting stronger every day, and eating a lot!
My constant companion Emma ~~ she’s such a soldier!
Oh FirFir, I am so excited seeing your home rising from the ashes. I just want to bust! And Beautiful Emma is there to see it. I wonder what she thinks about it all. xoxoxo
Oh I know!!!! Just think, when the road is complete, and all that huge rock the FEMA put in the road which is so difficult to walk on, will be covered up, and I’ll be able to walk Emma up to the house from the tiny house!!!
I can’t wait for you to come up and take it all in. xoxo
Me neither! I hope the roadwork goes quickly for you.
Lets guess how many hundred dump trucks of base rock are going to be driving slowly in low gear past your cabin up the road!
I’m guessing 12. What do you think?
I’ll double that!
Ok You’re on.
Actually I think triple that.
The house is coming along great!
Yes , I really believe we’ll be living in it this time next year! 🙂 Thank you xx
Yee-hah is right. 🙂 xx
Happy 13 1/2 Birthday Emma, you look marvellous.
Wow!!!!!! I am so happy for you that your house is coming along. I hope that the road will be finished soon.
Wendy, Emma is doing so much better now. House starting, and new design on the needles, I’m just in a fine mood lately. On Monday supposedly the road people will start excavating the old logging road, at the same time the timbers going up~~ xx
Oh, the house will show great progress now! Exciting! And I know you weren’t happy about needing to do the road but I hope it turns out beautifully. But most importantly, Emma is on the mend!!! Give the girl a hug from me!
Thank you Sarah, and hugs to Emma right away! right now she’s snoring away right next to me, but when she wakes up I’ll give her the Salpal Hug. xx
Oh, I love seeing Emma; I’m glad she is on the mend. She looks good for 13.
