New Caelifera Memorial Day 2014

Memorial day weekend.  Tourists galore!  Local economy++, tranquility–.  Up Gunn Ranch road, however, the universe was about the same as before.  Perhaps even fewer cars than winter cross country ski season.

The outdoor ceiling is finished modulo a bit in the back and some detail work.

Drywall in, floors done, but covered, next up cedar siding:

A green time of year:

It’s not an adventure if you don’t have a stick and a feather

Can’t wait until we can take the plastic off the windows and the patio is installed

April Trip

Late April, the arrow leaf basalm root is starting to blanket the hills.  Here Riser lake is joined by Mt Gardner and hundreds of flowers.

The grill flue has been installed and rusted:

Big rock surrounded by flowers.  I scared a grouse from under the rock who then scared the bejesus out of me.

New Caelifera Rises!

March trip.  Lots and lots of progress…for the first time you can really get a feel for how things are fitting together.  Here is the south side…steel siding is being rusted by a combination of vinegar and salt.

image

East wall is more rusted:

Inside the view is amazing even through the plastic still on the windows:

So glad we have two doors to open up this area onto the big patio they will be pouring:

Hot cold faucet… Love the metal surround

More siding detail:

Building is complicated:

This is working out to be one of my favorite views.  Its hard to see Mt Garner against the white of the clouds here, but this black metal frames it like a picture and its awe inspiring:

We have framing for the roof:

This wall is really tall.  The sliding door that covers it may require an adult to move:
