Exciting House Progress

For any of you out there who enjoy my blog for the stories about gardening, cooking, and working with children in nature, forgive me for yet another post full of house photos!  Yes, last week we canned and fermented hot sauce, made butter, did our first frost harvest, and made another yummy raspberry covered flourless chocolate cake.  The focus of our weekend’s work, however, has resulted in some great progress on the landscaping and retaining wall of our new house.  I’ll have to depend on past year’s posts to cover my kitchen and garden projects (click on the links above for recipes, photos and stories).  Now, onto the house…

Many hands make light work!

And the retaining wall is complete!

After returning from a day of work at the site, a special surprise was waiting in my inbox: photos of the house from above.  Thanks James!
