My friend, Scot, made a comment in the last post about making a visit from Iowa ("Is this heaven? No, it's Iowa") to give a hand with the strawbale building. He also personally attests to my lack of talent, reason, ambition and agility. True.
This is our guest facility for the summer, Scot! Drop me an e-mail and this splendorous, four person, Coleman Tent awaits. Hopefully this year we won't have to evacuate because of a wildfire! Don't worry, we haven't seen one bear this summer. BC said that when he stayed in our guest tent last week, he was only awakened once by a furry creature screeching from meeting some sort of terrifying, red tooth and claw, death. The deer have been bedding down next to it. No mountain lions have been spotted around here for months. You'll be safe (maybe?)!
Or if anyone else would like to take a stab at cobbing or strawbaling...drop me a line. Nothing like sharing a bit of honest sweat--followed by a bit of dinner (fresh and homemade!), a bottle of wine (the very best five dollars can buy!) and some stargazing.
Now I'm off to the wine-marinated Napa Valley for five days. Further progress on the Addition will have to wait until next week.
