There is still work going on up at the White Wolf Mine. This is a brief update. I planned on one year of construction and it’s turned into two. The exterior is being painted…finally.
It snowed as recently as ten days ago, but we have a warm patch that is necessary for the paint to adhere properly.
I took the cell phone and did a walk around for your edification, snapping a few pictures.
Building this custom home/hovel has been an ordeal and the general contractor is not the least bit honest. I can suggest to you that the work now going on is not a tribute to his integrity so much as it is a sign of his cowardice. He is concerned about what I might do. Those of you know me, understand that I NEVER threaten.
The dog that barks seldom bites.
And moving on, it’s close to being completed and I’m looking forward to not having workmen around the house every day.
But I would never do this again (Fredd – I know you’re in the planning phase).
Life in rural Arizona is good. It’s bucolic. I saw a bobcat running down the old logging road behind the house at breakfast the other day. Elk are common guests as are deer. I’m on the phone much of the day for work, but I can live with it.
And the scenery in the area is breathtaking. This (below) is the Clear Creek Gorge, which runs to the south of my house. We have big horn sheep climbing up and down those cliffs.
