    Magic of Spring!

    While construction had to slow down this week due to the rain, the garden has been coming back to life! Our broccoli and brussel sprouts have been loving all this rain ...We saw this quote recently, and felt it was appropriate for noticing the beauty of Spring around us here at The Cedars Ranch: "The world is full of magic things patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper." ~ W.B.

So impressive was his skill, we nicknamed him the "Butterfly Whisperer"!! Well, it seems Bill started to generate some competition for the title towards the end of 2017!   Read More...

    A Tale of One Yurt Wall

    Drywalling was the big thing going on this week! If you are familiar with yurts at all, you have probably mostly seen open plan yurts with no internal walls. As our yurt is a large "family-size" yurt, and we want it to be a fully functioning self-contained home, we need some internal walls to separate our restroom and kitchen area.   Read More...
