The Stem Wall is Done! Well, almost...

So what is the exciting thing about this photo? Let me tell you. I finally have built the rock wall to the height that we want it to be. All we need do now is level the thing off with mortar, and we will be able to start stacking bales! Yahoo!!

This is the front of the house. We are making very slow progress...

Things should start going a bit quicker (for those who have been following this experiment for some time now...). Never, ever write these things down. Never, ever say how long you think it will take to complete a project. But to not follow my own advice...we hope to have walls up and completed by the middle of May (if the weather holds out).

And the whole thing we hope to have done (are these things ever really done?) by August 1. Then again, a friend of mine once told me: "If you want to make God laugh, tell Her your plans..."
