Last spring we purchased this lot and house right before heading back to Montana for the summer. We were quite pleased with our purchase but looked forward to getting back this fall to start the remodel. The house is oddly built with some real quirks—we are removing some of those quirks and working around others. For some strange reason, the house has very small windows set high into the walls—if you are sitting in a chair, you can’t see out and we have a lovely view.
So, the cowboy was a one man demolition crew while I was in California—we are removing a whole wall of those tiny windows and replacing it with a bank of huge windows so we can see out over the desert to the mountains.
Ms. Emmi was very glad to see me when I rolled in this morning—getting home from the airport was a whole lot easier than getting to the airport on Monday—holy smokes, Phoenix has some nasty traffic!!! I managed to find the jeep in the parking garage without any problems and the trip back to North Ranch was without incident!
Rollie and Gina along with Larry and Geri took a trip out into the desert today—with all the rain we’ve had (over two inches probably) their rigs were a touch muddy as were the people!
Nothing much going on here today—we made a dump run and went to the post office to make sure our mailbox was still active. Larry and Geri joined us for a quick happy hour and now we are relaxing—I feel my bed calling me—I had some late hours in California!
This is the dry wash behind Jim and Ellie’s home—it was a raging torrent on Monday after the monsoon roared through.
