The Rambling Writer’s Quest for Home, part 11: Walls & Windows

Thor’s and my dream home looks like a real house now!

NOTE: People have been asking to follow our progress as Thor and I pursue our quest for our dream home with sunsets over the Salish Sea. So starting with my post of 5/21/22, we set out.

A lot has happened since my last progress report of January 13! Last we saw here, the roofers were going at it:

Luckily no one fell off the roof as they walked along the edges, and they were soon done.

The view from our upstairs master bedroom always thrills us! (We will be putting in more plantings to soften the look of the required bank-edge native plant buffer zone.)

I’m posting my complete blog entries on my own author website at, where you can finish this episode and enjoy all the accompanying photos. You can also view the complete Italy series there, as well as many other Rambles.

  1. Yes, we are very excited about the house. We have bumping into each other in our little rental for nearly a year, and I can’t wait to get out….but it’s oookkkaaay….I am patient….just waiting…..waitingggg…

    1. Yes, I have warned the builders that I will be moving in by end of spring whether it’s done or not! I’ll bring a cot, and they said they would work around me. Hoping that will not be necessary! We are Really looking forward to actually not knowing/hearing at every moment where the other person is in the home. And not tripping over black dog in narrow dark hallway.
