Community meets to cut down more trees

It's been a couple of years since Nobuta was here helping to cut down the trees that surrounded the plot. Now head of the local Land and Forestry commission, he returned today to continue to open the sky. Four trees felled before the rain started. Thank you Nobuta!

A beer on the new table.

Dinning table

Took me around an hour to assemble the legs for this monster dinning table. Still a lot to do and no real chairs as yet but work continues...

First dawn yoga

I had pictured doing this when all I had was the design on the computer. A yoga mat overlooking the forest and mountains at dawn. Tranquil.

Siding completed!

Takahashi-san and Saiko complete the siding on the south side of the house! With the help of the amazing (needs a patent!) "generation" jig developed by Takahashi, these two experts bring an end to months of exposed house sheet. The house is now completely covered in siding!
