Another Weekly Update

     Thanks for following along with us!  Last weekend we had many visitors; two people from Montreal wanting to check out our 'ship, my sister and her boyfriend, our friends Dirk and Bronwyn and their two daughters, Anne (the woman we bought the land from and lived with while we built the earthship) and her sister Linda, and a few people that just showed up and said "what is this?!"
      This week we put in some more finishing touches, like doorknobs on each door, trim in our master bathroom, bifold doors in the laundry area, and some more wood-stain.  We worked a lot in the family bathroom, and are ready to paint it and soon tile the shower/tub!  

Check out the pictures below for some updates:
