From the outside of our house, it has been very apparent that we have made an incredible amount of progress...at least for the first three years. However, when you compare this year’s exterior photo with that of the 2011 photo, the house looks ostensibly the same.
But, if you walk inside the house, you'll see a completely different story. This is where we focused most of our efforts in 2012.
It really is beginning to look like a house instead of a construction site!
We have been dreaming of living in southern Utah since we were married in 1982. After exploring the region for many years, we discovered the center of our universe was in Torrey, Utah. We bought ten acres of land with water rights, a rudimentary road and access to city water and power. But the best thing was the beauty of the place. You can't beat the view, the stars at night, the trees along the west property line and the clean air. We know we have an adventure ahead of us with the construction of our strawbale house. We'll do our best to record it all here.
