snow on  fenceI shot this pic last night a little while after it started dumping. This morning we woke to 14″ and its still coming down. Weather forecast has for another 10-12 today and more into Thursday. Its time to fire up the ol’ snow blower. This is a light cold snow so it should go pretty quick. I stll need to bring it over to my neighbors to get the bottom plate welded, the heavy snow of spring had a couple rocks buried in it and they got jammed under the blade and blew out a couple spot welds…

Moon Tree Ranch Cabin and Woodshed

Moon Tree Ranch Cabin and Woodshed

Back after nearly a week at the cabin…first time sleeping inside!!!

the first night was still quite chilly since the roof was still a blue tarp in spots…In my first day of work, I finished up the lookout rafters, got the roof ply on and boxed in the soffits and fascia. I also got the membrane down. On the second day I got the started on the metal roofing, Corrugated Galv….the sun was out and it was bit like working in a solar oven…glad it is oct and not July…that would have been a real cooker. I ran out of material so latter in the week I had to make a run to HD in Santa Fe…turned out to be a 6 hour adventure…Cabinets, insulation, roofing and more lumber for the woodshed…I spent an extra day there due to the material run.

My third day I got 3 of the big windows in, built the small entry deck and the loft in side, On my last days I got the woodshed mostly built ( got to make the doors yet) and the dinette area…I got the dinette cushions from a RV salvage place, PV controls and Battery will go under the right bench.

Tori and I hope to get back down for thanksgiving and get the wood stove set…I was using a small propane heater and It keeps the chill out…getting more insulation in will also help….we are looking forward to heating with some great smelling pinyon. I had frost each morning but by mid day was working in shorts and a t-shirt…a whole week with no Rain…how cool is that!
