Weekly Update #10

     This past week was really cold and rainy.  We installed some lights and unpacked some kitchenware into the cupboards.  Chad worked on plumbing the kitchen faucet, drain, and attempted to plumb the dishwasher.  It wasn't until Saturday that I made the executive decision to move the cement mixer inside.  Chad went away Saturday-Monday and I didn't have the visitors I had been expecting due to Hurricane Sandy, but big thanks to the Wimmersberger family and friends for your visit!  After touring the earthship and some lunch, Ross and I mixed concrete with the kids' help and then Clayton, Caylie, Elisa, Harriet, and Carla packed out a few walls.  Later Clayton and I made some more bottle bricks, and then he tried to say goodbye to everyone when it was time to go (he wanted to stay and work with me!)
