A light shines in the forest,
While the beginnings of a covered front porch take shape on the cozy cabin.
One small problem though, the four posts ended up all different heights and we have to make a second try to get them right. Something went awry in the measuring or the ciphering. Construction is a continuous act of problem solving.
After you're done looking at the cozy cabin, look down the open cut in the trees, the utility easement. On the right at the top of the last rise, a bright glowing light appears in the evenings on sunny days.
While I was clinging to the roof for the last week working to complete the living room roof joining the loft wall, someone else was inside stringing wires. The electric is being roughed in.
The roof meanwhile is almost done. All that is left to complete is the fastening of the four end pieces of the ridgecap that were left off to be able to lift the roof with a crane. Almost there!
I went to have a closer look at the Electric Tree when we were done figuring out we messed up the posts for the covered front porch this evening. This is closer to the tree.
It is really much more dramatic looking down the dark tunnel of the utility easement. This is zooming in all the way back from the cozy cabin. The sun hits it just right to light it up like it is plugged into the utility lines.
The rest of the forest shines too, if not quite as brightly.
An electric blue sky and cool, cold air covered the mountains for another day.
Hopefully some substantial rain is headed our way.
The two odd shaped, fixed glass windows for the loft wall were ordered and will be here next week.
Before the first snow it should be 100% dry.
