We just bought a school bus! A turquoise 1968 Chevy Short Bus, to be exact. What the–?
Here it is at its old home.
It still drives! Sort of. But for a few hundred dollars, we get a whole room to add to our compound of tiny buildings. A room on [...]

They’d been here about 45 minutes when it looked like this.
The guys brought the Noah House to its new home the morning of the third day. This the first load, pulling up to the yurt at 8:30 in the morning. Be glad there isn’t a picture of pre-coffee me, staggering outside to answer questions about where to put stuff. Scary.
The crew was hard at work on the second morning. Here is what it looked like when we went over to the old site.
Here is the roof. Just a pile of stuff.
Then we came back about four hours later and the whole house was just [...]

Full Primary. Actually, that’s a lie. I left off those butt balance poses at the end of seated. I kind of hate those. They bore me. [hangs head] I’m weak.
