Monsoon season has caused our house to begin rusting.
And it’s amazing.
A lot of plumbing work has been done to get the solar hot water system going.
And what is that shining on the roof and soaking up energy from the sun?
Custom desk designed and built by Ryan. A Baxter favorite.
Today we stained all the concrete.
The stove has been converted to propane by our mechanic Atsushi.
Was it really that long ago we set 6,000 pressed blocks?

That’s right, we’ve cleaned up and headed out. Soon the Benally’s will be able to move into their new house. We have a few things to finish up, but the house is practically finished.
About a week ago we had a writer visit. She mentioned that the house was much more round in shape than depicted in the blog. Hopefully the first few pictures in this post will help clear that up. This house has a lot of curves.

We recently had visitors from Dwell magazine visit us in bluff. They’re working on a story about the Rosie Joe house for their November ‘off the grid’ issue. Thanks to James, Dan, and Chia.
Lindsay inspects her baby – the bathroom vanity – after the forms were removed.
The most recent addition to the house, a 3form window sill in the shower. Waterproofing never looked so good.
Finish electrical work has been started – as well as plumbing. Exciting pictures of plumbing to come in the near future…and you thought that wasn’t possible.
