Heading Towards the Final Push

Over this last weekend to run the 11 mile and 2000 ft climb Cutthroat Classic. I survived. Meanwhile New Caelifera is itself starting to see the finish line. Notice some new changes?

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. 

image image image image image image

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

image

Planning for circular driveway and landscaping

image

A green time of year:

image

Choosing a patina for the doors

image

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

image

View from Test Dog creek

image

Metal meets wood meets sky

image

Garage

image

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.

image

The grill flue has been installed and rusted:

Cedar siding installed

Ceiling installed

Shots from a distance

Flue awaits the Argentinian grill

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

Test dog creek flowing

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:

image

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

image

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

Distance shots

Wall of windows:

Test Dog creek wasn’t running, but second seasonal creek was

Entry awning/canopy

image

Google auto awesome shows Gusty surveying the land

image

Siding with cedar has begun

image

But lots more to go:

image

Hot cold faucet… Love the metal surround

image

More siding detail:

image

Building is complicated:

image

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:

Framed!

We have framing for the roof:
image

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

Long library.  Left is Max’s bunk:
image

Kitchen area.
image

Steel beam.  More welding needed to secure
image

Windows for the master, bath and bunk room:
image

Very little snow, but lots of frost.
image

Aspens and library window
image

Windows in main room go in next
image

Bunk room
image

Bathroom windows
image

Hole for grill flue
image

Max’s bunk juts out.  This will all be metal and there will be a metal awning out from Max’s bunk box
image

Lots of patio out this direction
