Sorry I have not been around as much. Just busy. Pond is doing good. We did lose a couple fish to a great blue heron. He took one koi and a couple goldfish. One of the reasons I have been so busy my dad bought a small retirement place and I am been helping remodel it. They want a rustic cabin type look but on a budget. We got all the logs ourselves and stripped the bark off. We had a portable saw mill cut all the wood for the inside and out. We have made some good progress so far. This was a mobile home with a full basement which is very rare. Mainly working the weekends on it. Here is our pond from the other morning Our Pond by A & R Photography, on Flickr One of the female ducks, no babies this year but adult ducks everyday. Curious Mallard by A & R Photography, on Flickr A lily Water Lily by A & R Photography, on Flickr A couple of the house project, so far so good. Still a bit more to do. This is the day he bought it We made custom log over hangs, they took a minute to build them. We also did the stone work Some of the log work on the ceilings and part of the log opening on the left of the picture. I started making all the window casings. They are all one piece and will be removed for the wood on the walls then put back up.
