Update July 2011

Its the dog days of summer in Tennessee.  We take a dip in the creek 2 or 3 times a day to cool off.  Randy has finished the drywall and put the primer paint on.  We have bought the tile for the bathroom and have put down the cement board.  These pictures show our progress.

Looking into the bathroom from the livingroom.

The livingroom.  The entry to the kitchen at left is blocked off with plastic to keep dust out of the kitchen.

Below is a shot from the garden showing an asparagus spear behind a marigold plant.  The spear is about the size of my little finger.  We will be feasting on asparagus next spring!

We are also building a 10 ft x 20 ft workshop behind the house using mostly materials salvaged from the shed we were living in at the time of the flood, plus some materials from the old church.  This picture shows the workshop now.  It will eventually have wooden siding and a lean-to in the back and on the east side for storage of firewood and other materials.  There are two large clerestory windows on the upper back wall for light, as shown in the second picture. 

This is a view through the west door.
