Levels and straight edges are over-rated.
Glad you're living with your heart - in this and all your posts, it shows through.
(And that exhausts my sappiness for the year - I try to keep it suppressed, but you earned it.)

Frickin' hippies. Your house looks just like my sister-in law's up near Humbolt. I freeze my ass off every time I visit.

But she does have an amazing green house that makes up for it all.

Way Cool!
I spent a lot of my youth in Pville too.
I'm guessing you're out Mt Aukum way???

hey there norwegian.. say, oh MY! ... SOMEHOW i missed this!...

say, this is great... this is the kind of stuff i always wanted to do... course, never had the wood, the outdoors, or the money for a home...

say, now that i may be able to soon have a loan for a home... now, i can pursue this type of "add ons" someday, perhaps, for my place....

perhaps not as wonderful as yours, but at least you have "forged on ahead" leaving a nice path of sorts, for me to use as inspiration...

thanks for the share and god bless to you and your family...
happy climbing, there, to you, too...

hey there norwegian.. say, as it takes so longggggggg for pics to download here, i just now saw the doll house... aw, man... and i made mine out of CARDBOARD... shucks... never thought to go searching for some wood... course, it is a mite hard to find here... when i lived nearer to the woods, it was better fetchings...

hope "springs eternal" as they say...

say, i DO actual have a bottle of black swan (cheap here, for me, cant afford many others)... and i DO have a acorn squash, so I'M GETTING THERE... :)

Wow, "a place to live and learn to live and to gather health of mind and body in" all well said and from your heart.

As a carpenter of 23 years - nice work.

Your irreverence is refreshing.

Ya know, I was gonna compliment you on your funky hip contemtorary stylin' before, but flaked it off, or something.
So, Norwegian, Dude! I like your digs, man.

Nice pad, home & family.

It's nice to see that. I'd like to imagine a diverse and resilient community of wild things surrounds you.
