June 18: We built the first part of House #1 today, one of the two floor panels. Off to a great start, everything nice and square thanks to careful work by Rae and Keith!
It’s been a long hard road . . . but after looking for space for months, and being rejected at, at least one space, not to mention the places that wouldn’t return our calls . . . we finally found a space!!!!
And signed a year lease!! (June 7, 2013)
And more materials (June 8)
We even found a trailer jack in the garbage, how odd!
And started setting up shop!!! (June 10, 2013)
And, we have a mascot – left by the previous owners . . .
And we are getting closer to getting started on our first house!
