Building a House The fire pit we built in our free time. The raw land was covered in decades of manure from horses. The neighborhood moose. Blue skies and fresh powder. The first step towards power! The welcoming party. It just kept snowing, we were snowed in for a few days. One of the Rufous hummingbirds guarding the birdfeeder. Our minions. Aka the Ground squirrels. Our beloved neighbors and entertainment. Some of the abundant wildlife that calls our land home. The nosey equines who were on our property when we first arrived. Love! They liked the truck. The Rufous hummingbird was not happy about the woodpecker’s decision. Drilling for the well. The Rufous hummingbird was not happy about the woodpecker’s decision. The power being connected to our property’s power pole. Chain gang – us trenching for power. Meeting with Sam, the engineer Janae operating the Bob Cat. Beautfiul Colorado. The shed, aka Scott’s Room. We’ve staked out where the house and driveway will be. The firepit we made in our spare time. That’s a nice looking trench, if you ask me. Home sweet home! Home. They hung around our trailer a lot. The raw land was covered in decades of manure from horses. This black and white really makes it POP! Still drilling for the well…. Colorado morning. Beautiful Haystack Butte – one of the reasons we bought our piece of land. We have a lot of different Abert’s squirrels on our land; red, grey, white and black. I love these guys so much.
