Hey ya’ll! Ready for your weekly update? We are very much looking forward to posting new professional photographs by Keli Keach, but for now, you’ll have to bare with my i-phone snapshots.
For the first 72 hours of living in our new home, I’m pretty sure we were experiencing symptoms of shock. We were doing all the normal things–putting things away, cleaning, etc….but to us, it was all happening in an out-of-body kind of way. I suppose when you accomplish a goal of magnitude, the “holy shit I actually did it” moment is actually pretty normal.
My greatest excitement right now is how comfortable the space feels. You think you know the space that is being created, but until you’re living in it, it’s hard to know for sure. The layout may not work well for everyone, but for us it feels just right.
The second Great Flood came within hours of moving in. We ended up with three leaks. One from the chimney, one from a window and one from the sliding glass door. All caulk-fixable. Oh, and the rain chains work great!
So what’s up next? Lotus is creating an amazing aeroponics system which will be housed on top of the 40 foot container, along the giant windows. To prepare for this system, we need to install a sub-floor. Ryan is nearly finished with this project, photos to come.
Thank you all for checking in. It’s sure to be a busy week ahead. See you next Monday!
