Beginning a journey to live more simply…

The Oregon Shepherd Natural Wool Insulation for our walls and ceiling arrived tonight. The floor insulation came in a couple large cardboard boxes, so we were a bit surprised when a semi truck rolled in dropping off a HUGE bag of the material on a large pallet. Wow!

Wrapped up the last bit of interior wall framing for the lower level, began formulating a plan for the porch roof, and then completed a walk-through with a local electrician to plan our electrical needs and layout.
