- yellow

Photographs showing the 'finish' stucco coat. The color is a mix of yellow with some added sienna pigment worked into the surface. It should become a little less intense as it drys over the summer.

getting ready...

The three bedrooms, the kitchen, plus one bathroom are more-or-less done at this point. The plasterers are set to apply the color coat on the exterior this week as well.

Outside, temperatures soared to 100 degrees over the weekend. The much ballyhooed strawbale walls lived up to their reputation as the temperatures inside nudged only a few degrees higher to around 74 degrees.

misc. photos.

Photos from two recent outings. First, Christie and myself at the Oregon coast. I don't think the picture does justice to exactly how windy is was that afternoon. Second, visiting our Friends Becky and John in Bend, Oregon. Photos show Christie and Beckey, and Christie with sisters Ame and Stacey.

Below, photographs showing the pendant lights hanging off a beam above our (yet to be assembled) dining room table. Also, a large crepe myrtle we transplanted into the courtyard.
