Finishing the cupola

It was another amazingly hot day.  I don’t recall that it use to get that hot around here.  By the end of the day, it was in the high 80s.

After reviewing the plans with Randy, we decided the tree post we pulled out yesterday was of insufficient diameter. We had identified three more trees yesterday and went to look at them with Randy and decided two of them would work.  
Brian and I proceeded to clean out the area around the main roots.  Randy wants to get creative with the cedar posts sitting on large rocks for the front entranceway.

Around 1:30, we headed into Port Townsend to meet with Ann Raab of Greenpoddevelopment to discuss color scheme for the kitchen and the exterior.It is always interesting observing how she works as she is so much more visual than I am.
