Jacob Springs, Day 76...

Jacob Springs is busy today.  We have the sheet rockers, the stucco guys, the surveyor (for the barn) and some random guy on a cat up there (I have idea what he's doing.  He's pushing dirt around and I'm sure charging a bunch of money).  The landscapers were there this morning too, but the stucco guys ran them off and told them not to come back until next week.  Evidently the dust they were creating isn't good for applying stucco.

The interior is beginning to look much more 'homey,' don't you think?

This is the stucco guy who said he might have "warned" me about using such a dark color, but then went on to say that because of the wrap-around porch, we should be safe from too much heat absorption.   Thanks stucco guy.  He really was nice.

Here's our new back door that actually fits.  The first one was about 3 inches too small.

And the random cat guy.  Like I said, I have no idea what he was doing.

Here's what it looked like from the road.  Lots of vehicles and activity.  That trailer over there on the left belongs to my sister Linda.  She likes it up there and it's nice to have someone there at night.  

I'm also afraid I have some sad news to report.  The hawks have gotten the last of the chickens, including Hoot.  We miss them.

Guy questions alert: What is the dimensions of the barn gonna be? Is Linda armed (hope so)? Sorry about the chickens :-(
