XIV – Rocky Mountain Woman Builds Her Dream House

Written by Rocky Mountain Woman on May 2, 2012 – 12:02 pm -

This post is in honor of the letter “X” and part of Jenny Matlock’s Alphabet Thursday. For more “X” posts, please click here http://jennymatlock.blogspot.com/

The walls are going up! Driving home from work, I glanced up the hill from the freeway and you could actually see them! Hah! And you thought that Dick would never get off his fat butt and actually do something (I didn’t think so either).

    So glad to see thst Dick has “recovered” from all his ailments. Now if you can just keep him healthy you might see real walls by summer. By the way, where is the “wine cellar”, in case I come to visit. I didn’t see that on the tour.

  16. Arkansas Patti Says:

    Surely Dick holds the record for the longest time to build a house. At least the walls are big steps. Keep a blow torch to his behind. The mistress room really looks interesting.
