Fool for France

Walls in progress

Well, my Internet connection went out. Welcome to the countryside. So no photo but I can tell you that changes are being made. The first layer of cement has hardened and is looking good. The wall between the kitchen and dining room is down. Light now pours through what will be a beautiful space. The walls are being framed for insulation and drywall. I have a landscape plan that looks very much a grownup’s garden. The onsite crew has increased to four, a new record.  We have a roof plan that will increase the number and size of the skylights.

Mud is everywhere and it can get very cold but so far there is no frost.

Plenty is still missing but I don’t feel like going into it. It’s a good day to be positive.
