We are back from Florida.  Everything went great and I am proud to say that my sister and myself are officially the first franchise owners of Bricks 4 Kidz® in Saskatchewan .  This great business teaches children's educational classes in a variety of formats using LEGO® bricks

And lastly, wish us luck as we attempt building a straw bale house and building a new business simultaneously!

A building milestone has occurred.  Roof - check, house tarped in - check, and curb rail installed -check!  We are ready to start the bale portion of our straw bale home.  Anyone want to come help???!!!
Tomorrow Les is going to spend the day cleaning building scraps and putting away tools in preparation for a week off.  We are headed to Florida to train for a new business venture.  Stay tuned for more details!  My seven year domestic goddess career is about to end!
View of the west and north side. 

One of many very large snow drifts.
Building a door!

Here's the south side! 
A nice sunshiny afternoon!  View of east side of the house.
View of the southeast corner.  Scaffolding has been set up for bale stacking
as this is the only section lacking a deck.
View from the southwest corner of the house.  More wind and more snow this morning. 
Will spring ever arrive in these parts?
A lovely window bench (one of three) along the south wall.  I didn't have time to play with camera settings so, of course, everything is very orange inside the house.
Curb rail has been installed.

Still working on the roof.  It is a lot of roof!
Still thankful we were not part of that nasty storm that hit the prairies on the weekend. 
Still plodding along...
