grounded in contemplative practice
for a peaceful, just, & sustainable society
The foundation of posts & beams is now in place, and we are well on the way to putting a floor on it (latest image). Originally, we hoped to have the cabin ready for winter living. We had to choose, however, between cabin completion and installing a water supply. We opted for the latter. So, we will tarp the cabin over for winter and accumulate funds to finish it in the Spring ... (we had to modify our plans)

Special thanks to Christy Tews & Dharma Zephyr Sangha (Nevada) for their kind donation of an air compressor, pneumatic nailers, and generator. This makes the building easier and lessens wear and tear on aging joints, sinews, and muscles.
