Scott said from the beginning that we would have more visitors in Torrey than we ever had in Logan, and that is proving to be true. Over the Memorial Day weekend we met Ann, one of our two new neighbors and John and Linda, two visitors to our blog and now friends who live about five minutes away. They invited us for dinner and conversation at their place just off of Sand Creek Road. The trailer that came with their property is a delightful shade of pink that Carol, their neighbor, will be happy to see disappear once John and Linda have built a replacement.
In less than a week we have completed 12 of 16 girts, corrected three errors from last fall's work and realized we need to order a few more timbers to replace some that have twisted so much over time that we don't have the skills to use them and others to replace mistakes we've made.
As the week ended, Phillip and Paul had roughed in the plumbing for the the house, and Tyler and crew had completed the first phase of the floor. Now we can actually walk through our "house" and visualize where we'll be standing to cook dinner and where we'll be sitting while we enjoy the incredible Torrey skies.
Tomorrow we continue working on timber in hopes of a July raising, but you know that saying, "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy?" We cannot imagine even a single dull moment here. We've got to keep our noses to the grindstone, but the wildflowers are so beautiful that we'll take time to take pictures in the afternoon and the next morning before heading north for a few days.
