Move in Date March 14

First things first.  I wanted to apologize for the delay in posting updates.  It has been very hectic with the new family member (Bella – “The Puppy”), work, planning, construction, blah, blah, blah…… Anyway, my goal is to have updates at least once a week.  Also, I wanted to thank all the followers and subscribers.  BTW you can register and get update alerts here http://eurekayurts.com/wp-login.php?action=register .

Where to start?  Well there has been a lot of progress over the past 2 months.  Bob, along with his sidekick Luis and two of his friends Vicente and Jose installed the metal roof and skylight.

Yurt Half RoofWith the Yurt completely dried in, I started preparation to move in full time.

With the yurt routinely getting down to the mid 30’s, it was a very challenging environment. But, when the temperature inside dropped in the single digits, I had to take my extraordinarily generous neighbors offer to use his house while his family was out of the country on a mission trip. Wow, what a blessing to have the option!

Now that the mini split was installed and the insulation was complete, we finally have heat.
