A big part of my life, and I still ride the cutting edge, so I need to write about it sometimes.

Furrer Farms Is Coming Along

It always seems like it is the proverbial “two weeks” away, but the house on the farm is finally seeing the end of construction. Cabinets and counter tops are installed, the Tulikivi mass fireplace is in, most interior painting is done, carpet goes in next week, etc. My new target date for move in is now the end of July, mainly due to us being gone for vacation the middle two weeks of that month.
House Getting There
Farm wise, the old barn has been restored, the big “fun” barn has been enclosed and the recoding studio is nearly finished. We have a huge learning garden planted and our hay has been cut. I have been doing a lot of research about what kinds of crops, animals or services we can grow and provide, but have not made any real decisions about what the business model will be.
Old Barn Remodel
We are going to have an open house 8/2/2008 with a live bluegrass band, Heidi’s Darn Good Burgers, Ninkasi beer, and a short Procrastinators set.

Kindle

Don’t kill trees. The Kindle is the future of books! Some people think it looks strange, and I do too, but the design is actually quite functional. This thing will hold 400 books, and saves a lot of trees (not sure if it saves carbon output though since it is made of plastic).
