Decisions, Decisions

This week we’ve been busy making decisions! This is the first time that we have been part of a building project and we are so grateful for our architectural teams!!! After meeting with Micah, our landscape architect (Coleman and Assoc), over more site plan specifics we had final choices to make with Jamie, our Austin architect (HA Architecture), over material choices for our house, the Dance Hall and the Reception Pavilion.

Here’s Jamie and Micah reviewing some ideas …

Some of our material choices …

A team of engineers have been busy with the detailed drawings for the past month. We expect the final sign-off within a couple days. The next step is that Greg, our general contractor, will price out each building. The more of the these final decisions we have made the closer the cost estimates will be to reality. Jamie and team know us well and had some brilliant ideas!

Our site plan is coming along nicely …

Following on from last week, here are some photos of our luscious new permaculture orchards.

Here's one of our orange trees in our orchard ...

Paige watering our new fruit trees ... 

Check out our new garden gazebo behind the orchard ...

And look, our radishes are already sprouting, in our newly planted garden ...

Until next week,

Bill & Marilyn.

Hi there, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam feedback?
If so how do you prevent it, any plugin or anything you
can suggest? I get so much lately it's driving me insane so any assistance is very much appreciated.

Have you ever considered about including a little bit more
than just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and all.
But just imagine if you added some great pictures or
video clips to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with images and videos, this website could undeniably be one of the most beneficial in its field.

Great blog!

In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as
