Christmas Eve

December24

We finally got our occupancy permit and were able to move in on December 24th. The house is not yet finished but it’s good enough for what we are calling ‘camping mode’.
We trimmed a tree while Christmas songs played in the background.

The 2 big presents that night were the beautiful new bunk bed, made by our good friend, John Townley.

And for the new beds, the girl’s Nonna lovingly made each one a quilt, they are very beautiful!

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night.

Twirl approved

We stopped by the house yesterday. It is very exciting watching the pieces fall into place. The flooring is in, it looks beautiful, and gets full approval from the girls as well. We can’t wait to be sitting in the bench seat behind the girls!

Family help

November21

We’ve had a number of visits from family members in Vancouver. The support we are getting from them and our fellow Revelstokians is amazing. Our family enjoyed the first lunch together in the house.

Moving along…

The exterior framing of our house is just about done. We’ve seen many of the local carpenters come out to give a hand. Thanks so much to Dean and his teams of skilled volunteers that have ensured the building is nice and square!

Feeling the love

Last July we had an event where well-wishers could decorate plywood for our house. It’s now up and a permanent part of our house!

We can now add triangles to the current shape of our project. Roof trusses went up today; it’s starting to look like a house!

A perfect ending

August30

What a spectacular ending to a very productive day on our house build. If you are not familiar, this is the story of our project here.

Dig, dig, dig.

SAND, and lots of it!!

In downtown Revy, as you can see, it is deep, deep sand under all the houses. It makes for very sturdy foundations (ours; 80+ years old and no cracks) but tough for digging. One scoop out, half falls back in. So the foundation pit is pretty big considering the addition extends only 6′ from the house on the side. All is going smoothly and more cement is coming soon.

Demolition!
