A dangerously deep-dug handmade well with strategically stacked stones. What a stunning legacy of farm life, hard work and craftsmanship. It was amazing to see, nerve wreaking to keep.

Don’t worry. Construction blogging continues on June 26 because the sub-floor sheathing was rescheduled yesterday at the last minute. However, yesterday saw plenty of construction activity involving cell phones and calculators vs. hammers and nails. All essential tools of the trade!

Bert would be proud.
