Apple & Pear Cider Time

My brother Mark brought down his in-laws manual cider press from the 1890s. We assembled and mounted it on a pallet. This weekend we went all out and pressed 25 gallons worth of apple and pear cider. Finally putting the fruit in the orchard to good use. Steve brought Beepa down to get him some outside time. Very productive day.

HQ2 – Roof on, Insulation in

Roof is on (mostly), just in time for sustained rainfall we have been getting. The day after that the sprayfoam guys showed up and insulated the whole place. Of course they got stuck trying to turn around due to rain and I pulled them out with the tractor.

HQ-2 Project Kicking into High Gear

The project to re-furbish the gray house for use as my office has kicked into high gear. Love this contractor too, flexible and extremely detail oriented. I’m getting some idea of how much I don’t know about this stuff.
