The yurt, in many crates and boxes, has finally arrived. We picked it up from a local lumber company that was willing to receive it from the truck and we now have it stashed in various places on the property. After a winter of little rain, the skies have opened just in time to make this project a muddy mess and keep us from easily accessing the site. It’s been hit or miss depending on the day.
I have talented men building the platform, and watching it come together reminds me of all of the building projects I’ve been a part of through the years. I do love to “supervise” and cheerlead a crew of construction workers. Now that the footprint is physically present I’m beginning to get a feel for the site. The yurt will be elevated which allows for the plumbing and electrical access from the floor and as a bonus improves the long view. My mind fills with questions about the landscape and how I can create the intimacy I crave in outdoor gatherings. There is so much happening at once and so I will post quite a few photos this time so you can appreciate the process and see why I’m beginning to get excited about my new home.
