We begin...

We are now the proud owners of a multitude of power equipment and hand tools.  Chain saws, felling wedges and the like. Plus blisters. We've in the process of felling trees to clear a way for a driveway. It's a slow process, some of the trees appear to be things like red oak and black walnut.  Unfortunately I didn't research the flora of the area to know what I was looking at or I would have taken more care to fell the trees in a manner to preserve as much usable timber as I could, some of its very beautiful and could be used for benches, table-, or counter tops. Need to locate someone with one of those portable sawmills, too. At any rate, it's a start. We're also having a try at a professional home designer/architect who has an excellent imagination and doesn't mind designing outside the box a little.  I figure if I haven't been able to put together something doable over the last decade of designing with SketchUp, it's time to quit wasting time and let a pro put it together in a practical and efficient manner. We're looking forward to seeing what he comes up with. 

At any rate, check out the designer's architecture, some of it is very fanciful and very fun, castles and all.
