Ring necked Pheasant. Believe it or not he is not crossing a stream - that is a puddle on the driveway. This guy seemed quite oblivious to our presence...the car came within a metre of him and he didn't flinch.

We have also seen a Barred Owl, a couple Blue Jays, and today the first Robin appeared. Spring really has arrived!

There is still lots to do though - painting of the cement / stucco walls, staining the new bed frames, and unpacking, unpacking, unpacking! The hope was to have everything setup by Xmas, but it is looking more like it will be Spring.
The bed frames (100% solid maple - no toxic adhesives) will be stained with a milk paint - also totally non toxic (from Homestead House: http://www.homesteadhouse.ca/products/WoodStain/).
Also, the mattresses are all 100% organic, natural rubber (a sap from trees). They are covered with organic cotton, and when you come to sleep over you have your choice of organic wool or organic natural rubber pillows. Of course, they will also be covered with organic sheets and an organic wool comforter. All products are from Obasan. (http://www.obasan.ca/)
Stay tuned for interior photos as everything starts to come together.
