28 May 10 After the concrete was in and partly cured, the building erection started right away and was mostly framed by the 28th of May.
10 Jun 10 Here’s Kenny and the building coming along. The work slowed and became more tedious when installing the r19 wall- and r30 roof-insulation.
15 Jul 10 For the inside walls, Lori & I painted fifty 4’ x 8’ sheets of plywood (three coats each side!), and Ron (our neighbor) and I worked like dogs [why do dogs work so hard?!] for three days cutting the ply sheets to size and mounting them vertically on the walls. Plywood makes a great wall finish and a strong surface for mounting electrical conduit, switches and outlets. Dan, of “D&J Electrical Services” came with the highest recommendations. Indeed, D&J delivered, by Dan’s son Kyle and Mike, a top-notch electrical and lights installation deserving of the finest commercial building. In this photo Lori shows the workshop portion of the building.
15 Jul 10 Kenny has ensured we have a quality building finished to a “T.” We have only a few things to finish on the inside, and to install and cover the water-line and extra-lines trench into the left of the building.
25 Jul 10 We switched gears from finishing the building to getting our truck and Casita loaded up and driving up to Washington State for the Davis family reunion. Here we are in Potlatch WA.

10 Oct 10 Here we are with Adam, a wonderful friend and law enforcement officer with U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service. During his visit with us we walked down Fremont Street in Las Vegas, hiked in the mountains on the east side of Pahrump and attended worship service at the church we love (Calvary Chapel). Adam loves life, and is interested in any outdoor activities and in enjoying people. In this photo we stand in front of a mirror in a casino on Fremont Street.

15 Nov 10 We camped and hiked at Picacho Peak in Arizona. On our return from the hike we found this Tarantula. After “playing” with him for a few minutes, I was able to pick him up.
19 Nov 10 We walked down 800 feet below the surface into huge caverns in Carlsbad Caverns National Park. We hiked four miles and spent 4 hours inside the caverns! We returned to the surface with many wonderful photos.
