The Start

In the beginning, there was cow pasture. Then it was subdivided and we bought this heavenly little piece of terra firma on which to build our new home. That was back in August. We submitted our development permit and building permit to Leduc County and waited for their timely(?) response. Finally, toward the end of October, we were granted permission to start construction. Our beautiful, warm, dry fall was almost over and we now had to hustle to get the basement in before freeze-up.

Jim is not one to waste time, though and decided to build a shed ... our little house on the prairie. It is vital to the build as it not only houses tools and materials but also my porta-potty. I must admit that there have been days when the cold temperatures have made using said potty challenging, but it's far better that the bucket with a garbage bag in it that had been suggested.

  1. Thanks for blogging! I wondered how it was going. This is fantastic.I don't know how you have the energy to do it while you're building a house, but I'll certainly be following. GO KATHLEEN AND JIM (and IAN and ALLAN!)(and BOB and WES!).
