re-doing Counters

yup, already needing to re-do stuff that was first built less than 2 years ago. Well, things like wood furniture need work regularly, and stuff that was fresh wood needs even more care. I re-oiled the 'kitchen' counters with tung oil, and by gosh, they look pretty good.


this is the island by the door.

Hey Tys! Your site is just so interesting to read, how about some pix of your yurt? I've seen some teasers, but (as far as I know) I haven't seen any pix that feature just your yurt... how big is it? How do you like living in it? How's the composting toilet working for you? I assume you are still using one, ours is doing great, I feel funny now when I go to someone else's house and "flush", I actually prefer using my bucket. :)

Wretha,
ok, I put a yurt photo up! the composting toilet is working perfectly. I'm still surprised people try and use those crazy store bought machines when a 5 gal bucket system will never break!
Cheers,
Tys

Starting anti-fire prep

Well, we never really stop.  But, took a picture of today's raking below the yurt.  Every year I work to get a bit wider swath cleared....
