Sweet days of summer at The Wolf Lodge

Time is fleeting. This spring has turned into full fledged summer and before we know it fall will be rolling back around. Oh, that we might enjoy each moment gifted to us as it flutters through our lives.
Multiple projects have been completed, or are well under way, since my last post. In addition to the progress pictured below, The Reidt crew has spent many weeks renovating Jared’s parent’s new home in Kennewick as well as getting our home in Bothell, Washington sale worthy.  We also welcomed 80 family members for a campout over the fourth of July.

We are so grateful for this season of our family working together toward a common goal.  Pretty sweet days, these are!

The sheetrock work culminated in April with a sublet contractor texturing the interior top two floors followed by Jared and the boys painting throughout.  Yes, Jared chose a "special" painting outfit! :)

One late spring weekend, the boys decided they wanted to put the pool room to use as a basketball court.  They used some spare floor joists and plywood to construct a gym floor.  This has provided a cool place to shoot some hoops throughout the summer.

In June, the guys finished the most important room in the house, (according to Jared)...Garage walls painted, floor painted, and tools moved back in.

Mom and Dad Wilson have moved to our neck of the woods.  They settled right in and Dad got right to work on the radiant floor project.

Jared taking a bit of a breather from ROCKS!

Rocks around the door were custom cut and fit by our foreman, Jared.  The door has five coats of teak oil applied by Amy.  We are hopeful this doorway will welcome many into a place of peace and rest.
