Pix






Here are a few photos my brother Paul took over Labor Day weekend....


--> Soon to be the cupola of our common building....










--> A perspective on the Common building; This coming weekend, two Spaniards are flying in and beginning work on installing the Spanish wood-fired bread oven that Rise Up Bakery, the artisan bread bakery started by Jo & Rosie, will use. Balers will be driving down from Portland as well to begin building the strawbale walls that cover a third of the building. This is the last time I'll post any photos of the building looking this open.....


--> Distant view of the common building, with our kitchen garden in the foreground. Half of the garden has been appropriated to store lumber needed by the construction crew, so we should have a much bigger food garden next year.....













--> A long view of the common area (the common building is out of view, but on the left side of this picture). The kitchen garden's in the foreground, and left to right are the greenouse, the current common building, and Ryan & Eden's orange strawbale cottage. I'm living downstairs in the main building right now, and we all use the tiny kitchen and living room area. All of that will change when the common building is finished......




--> Looking from the common building at the kitchen garden, with a few posts for construction that still need sanding/finishing.....

Hi Danny, Lovely reading. Nice to hear your willingness to try new things, always looking towards health and right livelihood.
There is a fellow living in a little hut made of doors in some woods next to our house. I had a dream that he was living there and it was really great so I told him about my dream and now it has come to pass! But now I know him a little better and see that what at first seemed like charming eccentricity might actually be more rightly called mental instability. So I hope everything goes alright with him. The other day he burned himself rather badly with embers from a fire - a coming-of-age ceremony, he said. This worries me.
Still, on the whole I'm glad to have him there, living in a place "out of doors" in the out-of-doors (sort of).
