Getting to the first floor

The posts are up & a platform is rapidly getting put down. It's been a very busy past couple of weeks with the posts and beams rapidly being put into place. Exciting, exhausting & exhilirating! Thank you thank you thank you to Pere and Didi for the many many things they've done to make this project possible, RJ for his magic tricks and handyman skills, Jan and Rich who came from Alberta, Cath and Naomi for delivering lunch, Bonnie for cat sitting and costco runs, Joe, Matt, Marc and Doug (go A team!) Lewis for being "snack boy" kevin 'de nugent' for his wiring work and Maddy for taking time from the picket line to help out.

there are lots and lots of new pictures on the photo blog.

Help Gambier Island

Gambier Island is facing numerous environmental threats at the moment when we are seeing a rebirth of wildlife. Wolves, whales, owls and more, all around us we see evidence of an eco-system on the rebound. But that resurgence is threatened by plans to allow clear-cutting, develop LNG plants, sink warships.
