Breaking Ground on a Major Project

Yesterday, we spent some time in Morro Bay - on the ground, this time - where our friends Nancy and Jerry finally received the building permits for their new house on Friday. "Finally" because the application has been in the city planning commission's hands for a full year!

Their contractor is ready to go immediately. He moved a small tractor and a full-sized excavator onto the lot on Saturday, and will begin work bright and early on Monday. Nancy and Jerry held a "golden shovel" ground-breaking party on the site to celebrate.

They'll definitely have a good view of Morro Rock from their upstairs living area. The downstairs will be Nancy's studio (she's a weaver, spinner, and knitter), storage, and the garage.
