Some pics of recent hut tours with fantastic snow and weather…
Final details of the Raven Yurt were dialed over a pot of warm chili.
The fresh snow opened up some of the better ski terrain.
The weather cooperated… just after the yurts were set, the snow started falling. This allowed us to build the interiors as the snow piled up outside.
Hopefully 8+ chords gets us through the winter… plenty in reserve if we underestimated. Thanks to the hard work of our friends!
Three Creeks Lake is gorgeous right now, with a foot of cold dry powder covering the landscape. We finally dried in the main kitchen Yurt and have one of the wood stoves crank’n. We now have a clean dry work space to start building furniture and dialing out the insides.
Thanks to an awesome crew and months of preparation, we hauled our new Yurts, sauna, flatbed deck and woodshed panels up to Three Creeks Lake, their new winter home. We were blessed with a fresh coat of snow at the end of our push.
The doors needed windows…so why not make the windows be the eyes of an owl and a raven torch cut from sheet metal? They are not simply art, they double as the door’s crossbucks.
The crew has been at it since early this morning with some good results. There are hundreds of wooden pieces to mill, cut, oil and assemble to make a 20-foot diameter yurt. The production line is going smoothly for an October finish date, just in time to beat the first deep snows of the season!
