The foundation pour took place on October 23. Concrete trucks from town huffed and puffed their way up to this mountain spot. Steve and his crew guided the pour and smoothed out the concrete, ensuring an even surface for the foundation. These pictures were taken a few days later, while a crew member worked hard to ensure the surface would not dry out. The wooden forms will be removed once the foundation is set. Now the next stage begins: window and door bucks and the laying of the first rows of adobes.

Fall is on the way up here in the mountains. The green of the summer is giving way to tall tan grasses and the last splurge of wildflower color.
