Down to Landscaping

03 September, 2012

It certainly has been a long, drawn out affair, but after almost 2 years from the day we first broke ground Anam Cara is finally ready to go.  We labored all Labor Day weekend ;-) putting up blinds in the guest rooms, dusting, sweeping, and hanging valances.  I made bedding purchases and felt like I spent a bundle just outfitting the two extra long twin beds and the king that will be formed when the twins are pushed together.  Aside from hauling a few more boxes of books and odds and ends for the storage area we are ready for guests!

There is a lot, and I mean A LOT, to do for landscaping.  Our first project will be to harvest most of the cedar trees in the back of the house so we can landscape that area with a fire pit and patio.  I'm going to try using some of the cedar trees to form the labyrinth that will go on the south side of the house...hopefully a fall project. The rest of the landscaping will happen as we have time and money. 

We also will be working on our application for 501C3 status and an official business/ministry plan.  Depending on how the backyard cedar harvest and landscaping goes we may tackle an open house late fall, so stay tuned for more details!
