We hired a local drilling company to drill our water well and our HVAC wells. Overall, we were very happy with their work!
The drilling rig and pipe truck.
Drilling (The gray sludge is silt)
River of sludge (yuck!)
When he was done drilling the well he took the cap off causing the built up pressure to release creating a geyser.
The water pressure was amazing!
Telephone poles and a lovely sunset on the way home
After all the drywall went up we hired a mudder to finish the walls and get them ready for paint.
The boys’ room all mudded
Another view of the boys’ room (The silver pipe is the chimney pipe from our wood stove. There will be a drywalled box around it eventually.)
The boys’ bathroom drywalled and mudded (The drywall in the bathrooms was green because it is a water-resistant drywall.)
The main dormer all mudded
Getting ready to mud the girls’ room. (The black things in the window are the mudders stilts. He mudded around the top of each room first wearing his stilts to avoid the need for a ladder.)
The outside wall of the girls’ room
Another breathtaking sunset!
Each day I am awed by God’s majesty as displayed in a microcosm thru the phenomenal sunsets every evening!

Setting the second module.
Raising the roof on the second module. (In case you’re wondering, some of the shingles were put on in the factory. The big hole is for a shed dormer.)
God’s beautiful sunset!
Here’s that same sunset reflected on the back of our house. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I can’t wait to do dishes in this house. (The kitchen sink is under the two windows that are right next to each other.)
The crew working in the dark.
The next day. . . (Note, that most of the shingles are on and all the walls are up. The garage will come off of the mudroom extension in the left of the picture and the porch will wrap from the front corner in the right of the picture, around the corner, and to the door off the mudroom
The hole for the steps down into the basement. (It’s currently covered over with plastic.)
By the way, here is a picture of our second module almost in the creek.
