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!
