Home sweet home!

New KLI

It’s been more than a month since our last post and I’m delighted to be sharing this update with you from my desk at 7400 Pershing.  To say that it is peaceful here is an understatement.  Our geothermal cooling is soooooo quiet (and cool!).  Our solar panels are doing their job, too. We received our…Read more

Move in date has been set!

Second Floor

I’ve been a bad blogger. Sorry for the delay in sharing progress updates on 7400 Pershing. We’ve been busy pushing the project to the finish line. Move-in is set for June 1 and we have a lot to do to hit that date. Since the last post the drywall been hung and finished, the second floor…Read more

7400’s rain garden is approved!

Rain Garden

The plans to install a rain garden across the front of 7400 are moving along well. We recently were notified that our application to the Deer Creek Watershed Alliance has been approved. This is great for two reasons:  it’s confirmation that the brilliant Two Sallys are indeed brilliant and that the Alliance will help to…Read more

Progress inside and out…

Solar

We’ve been waiting on some good visual progress to share new news and finally, it’s here. We arrived home from spring break to find the kind of forward motion we’ve been looking for. On the outside, we are excited to share some shots of our 24 new solar panels perfectly situated on our south facing…Read more

It pays to visit the job site.

Ductwork

Today was a great reminder that random site visits can make or break a project. The HVAC guys have been working away installing duct work. They are mostly finished upstairs and have done a great job so far. When I happened upon them today they were about to start installing the duct work on the…Read more

Drill baby drill for alternative energy.

Geothermal Drilling

For the past two days the site has been humming with heavy equipment. Three trucks and two trailers arrived with tools, a couple thousand feet of pipe, hoses and a generator. It’s messy, noisy work but it’s going surprisingly fast. In case you are a novice like me and don’t know much about geothermal, here…Read more

Drawings for clarity.

Elevation

A few weeks back we had a request for drawings. Silly that we haven’t provided them sooner! To follow are some elevations and floor plans. It is a two story structure with distinct rooms on the first floor and one open studio on the second. Enjoy!  

Progress three ways!

Second Floor Opened Up

A few updates on Pershing to kick off the week…   The geothermal pipes are in! The wells will be drilled soon…more later on that! This photo was taken from what will soon be our new utility room looking west toward the kitchen and our back door.   The old stairs have been removed to…Read more

Prepping for geothermal!

Geothermal Prepping

We’ve been away for a couple of weeks and of course could hardly wait to get back to the building. So today, with an outside temperature of 100 degrees fahrenheit (why didn’t we stay in Colorado?!), I popped in to find two hard working, weary guys. They’ve spent their morning busting up concrete to make…Read more

Ready. Set. Go!

I know I promised to write weekly (at a minimum) but I got ahead of myself. You see, there is this little step in the beginning called permitting and that takes a bit. A couple of days ago my dear friend Matthew Porter was checking in to see if I had posted anything lately. When…Read more
