house updates

 I don't know if you have ever noticed the flapping white house-wrap and exposed plywood on the bottom half of our house... but I am happy to report that after 5 years it is finally going to be plastered (!!!) Dave came up to help Alex wrap the house in one more layer of wrap, one layer of black paper (also for protection), and a layer of lathe (basically chain-mail that gets stapled to the wall so the plaster has something to cling to).  Next step is picking out what color plaster we want, and two days of plastering.

Alex also built his first rock retaining wall. See it up there to the left of our house? It's so pretty.
