12 Days of Painting!!

12 Days of Painting!!

Let me tell you all - it has been a busy busy week! We have been working from sun up to sun down, painting all the yurt boards. Whew! More about this later!

First, here's the decking going on earlier last week ... 

We love that our builders did this creative workaround our trees. As a friend on The Cedars Ranch facebook page suggested, "It will be like living in a tree house without climbing the ladder! Awesome!" We love that! 

As the yurt platform was being completed, we needed to make sure all the pieces for the next stage, the yurt construction, were ready to go. Here's a group selfie of Bill, Paige and I on the almost finished deck! At this stage we've been painting yurt boards for days and days! 

What exactly were we painting that took us all that time?, I hear you ask.

Deep breath ... (imagine the following sung like the "12 days of Christmas"! lol) ...  

48 rafter boards, each 16’ long, 

with 1 coat conditioner, 

2 white wash pickling, 

and one protective finish coat,

2 lattice frames, totalling 94’, 

with 1 coat conditioner, 

2 white wash pickling, 

and one protective finish coat,

And 1 large ring for the yurt dome!!

We are so grateful to Paige for all her hard work. 

Here's the beginning of the yurt foundation being laid on the completed platform. It's all beginning to look more real now.

Stay tuned for further progress!

Until next week,

Marilyn & Bill.

Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your article seem to be running
off the screen in Chrome. I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I thought I'd
post to let you know. The design and style look great though!
Hope you get the issue resolved soon. Cheers

I was curious if you ever thought of changing the page layout
of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one
or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?
