It is looking like a house now

The siding is done, roof is on, drywall is up and soon the flooring will be installed.  It is now looking like a house and much easier to picture the size of the rooms and what it will look like with our stuff inside.

Our pond is overflowing with all the rain and the sides are starting to look a little unstable in places.  I wish there was a way to keep all this extra water and use it to refill the pond in the summer when there is not as much rain and the levels drop.

There have been a lot of very windy days here and so far all the trees on our property have been good.  The ones around the house were my biggest concern because I don’t want the roof crushed.  So far other than a few smaller branches there has been no problem.  We will get an arbourist out to check out the trees in the areas by the house and eventually all or most the others.

I am looking forward to being able to sit on my deck and drink my tea while listening to the birds and the wind in the trees.  There have been a few ducks visiting our pond and we hope they will decide to stay.  They fly away every time the see us right now so is not looking good.  We may throw some food in for the catfish on our next visit to see how they managed over the winter.

I will try to get Steve to show me how to get my facebook photos on here then I can post some pictures of where we are right now.
