July 8,2005
Rainy Oregon Friday!

We are getting boxed up and trying to empty out our house, after selling it. I can't wait to get out to the countryside, under the 200 year old fir trees and oaks. This blog will help our family and friends keep up with our building progress.
A lot has happened in the past couple of months- we have sold our house and now are the proud owners of 5 acres of blackberries and marshland! We have put some of the endless stuff we have accumulated into storage, had house plans drawn up, had a well put in, had a garden shed built by David's folks with in 2 weeks. We have bought a 30 foot trailer to live in while the house is being built, and a tractor for David to play with.
We still need to have the builder get the plans to the county for the building permits, get the power installed to the site and the site preparation/blackberry removal/road work. A lot to get done in a short time, but I will start with packing up the kitchen!
