The tuckpointing is finished! It was an ongoing project for the bulk of the summer and today my wife finished off the last bit. The pointing ended exactly where the slipforming ended last year - the south peak.
We are ecstatic that we can move on from another very large project. Hats off to my wife and my mom for doing all the tooling.
Today we also started putting trim around the windows.
Ok, so we don't live on our 12 acres yet. But, I wanted to start this blog as a written account of our adventure from our house in town to our country "farm". Currently we have 12 empty acres and a rather spirited rottweiler/husky. Hence the name: 12 Acres and a Dog.
