Waterfall – 3/1/2020

Sometimes you just go outside to have fun. We often go to waterfall and end up just working on it. Okay, we may have dome some minor work like sealing the roof and mowing.Sonora even pitched in!

Eventually, it was time to do our favorite thing, have a big fire.

Sonora chopped some wood to make sure it had enough fuel.

Somewhere along the way, we found a football inside and threw it around. I think it still works 🙂

These peaceful family days are why we continue to go out there!

Waterfall – 11/17/2019

Having property is nice, but its also a lot of work. If you have improvements, then they have to be maintained. In  our case, we were out there, caulking to keep the rain from rotting everything out.

Ahh, Danelle sitting on the job.

I’m probably in trouble based on the look she is giving me. Probably wondering why I”m taking photos and not working.

I miss my beard when I see photos like this, but I usually second guess myself when I have it.

Sink  was leaking, need to replace a cracked pipe…

Hey look, its Corvin!

Waterfall – 1/6/2019

We went out to Waterfall today. I’ve talked about the bathroom situation, but never really photographed it. So, here is our fancy outhouse…

Yep, there is no door. It hasn’t been a problem yet as people don’t generally want to hang out here 🙂

Looking down the trail at our place.

Looking uphill to our place and the deck.

Love the solar. it isn’t the largest, but its enough to keep the lights and heat on overnight and re-charge during the day.

The view for the deck would be perfect without the utility pole. But we can ignore it and still have a fantastic sunset!

Waterfall – 10/7/2018

We came out to waterfall to do some work today. All four of us came out. I brought the circular saw and the generator, Danelle brought the wire brush and some spray paint. After the requisite mowing/weed wacking, had the place cleared out in no time and were ready for the actual tasks.

Corvin and I went to where the old shed was and fired up the generator. We took turns cutting up long planks and moving the wood over to the burn area. This was hard work and we didn’t take any photos.

Sonora and Danelle prepped the picnic table and painted it. As an added bonus for Sonora some neighborhood cats came over and she got to pet them. Everybody had fun and we got work complete!

Concrete at Waterfall – 9/1/2018

It seems like its a never ending job to mix and pour concrete out at waterfall. This time, its a landing pad for the stairs we want to put in for the deck. Today’s job is 400 pounds of concrete (plus the water its mixed with).

You can see from the bucket above that there was concrete in there. Its all hand mixed in that 5 gallon bucket and then poured into the form. The work is hard, but the result is good.
