Alright! Sh^t just got serious! (no pun intended). Will that be a dual purpose tank for when you build the house? Or just for the barn.

Thatís still debatable since the county has some strict regulations. We will see.

Well I was finally able to get these deer graduated from the pipe feeder to a conventional broadcast feeder. Makes life a lot easier filling the later thatís for sure.
6 doe have been pretty steady and 1 small dink 8 pointer is all Iíve caught on camera before the last couple of weeks.

Finally have a decent young buck showing up on the regular....albeit at night. Looks like heís pulled down hard by the rut. Maybe heíll hang around another year...if I can keep the local spotlighters at bay.

Brought in 48 tons of crushed asphalt today and got it spread out around the shop and road out to front gate. The caliche has served its purpose well over time but it needed a facelift and Iím so tired of the dust.

I really like the looks of it better thatís for sure. I think it will pack well since the crushed rock road has been there for over 5 years. They say it helps to lay down the crushed asphalt on a good established base.
We will see how it does...hope it lasts.
4 loads of 12 tons each.

Leveled and spread some out next to shop where RV will be parked.

I put the recycled asphalt down at my house in 2006 and once again in around 2012 and it has held up well. We like the way it looks as well. I was told by a couple of the old timers around here that they spray theirs with used engine oil that is diluted with diesel to keep it looking good and dark. The place looks amazing by the way.

Thanks for the compliment.

Interesting about the engine oil and diesel mixture. We use that same concoction to treat the boards on our utility trailers and it works for sure.

Been traveling a lot for work recently and havenít provided an update in a few weeks.
It took forever but we finally got the electric company to flip the switch so now we have power and lights in the shop.




We decided to go with ďcoca colaĒ colored stained concrete in the temporary apartment. I think itís going to turn out good but I forgot to take a darn pic before they covered it up. Walls have been textured, trim and baseboards are in and a pocket door installed.


Cabinets were installed today and being stained in the morning.


Countertops, tile, backsplash and paint is next. Plumbing for the shower and sinks to follow and then appliances. This is crazy as itís beginning to sink in that........well........this is really happening and that we will actually be living out here before long.

Progress has slowed down quite a bit the last few weeks but we did finally get the granite countertops and sinks installed.






Ceiling fans and canned lighting completed.





Plumbing with backsplash and shower tile is scheduled next.
Moving right along.

Wow! If this is temporary living quarters I'd love to see your house. Very nice brother. You need to have that annual Crawfish boil there.
