As of this morning, August 18th, the walls for the first floor are UP!! They still need some tweaking and some cleaning up, but the bale are IN!! Exciting time!!

(right) This is the bedroom and office side of house (without the wall seperating the two yet). The big window on the right will be a bench seat for Maiko & Bomber to hang out during those beautiful mornings!!
(right) Another view of the bedroom with big bench window and two high windows for extra light.
(far right) staircase window (without the staircase - use your imagination). (below) This is the NW side of the building.


Finally, this (right) is the back end of the first floor which will house the first floor toilet, dressing/utility room, ofuro (bath) and door to outside area which will hold a rotenburo (outdoor bath) in the future.

Thanks Ashley!! I look forward to you coming back to visit when it's all said and done. Maybe a mini BEE reunion and we'll go for some bike rides around this amazing little corner of the world. :) By the way, I wear my BEE t-shirt often on the job site!!
