|Finally got the slate down. Makes the place look a lot more finished. Still have the bathroom tile to do as of May||This was first winter with plants growing in the greeenhouse.

Used a space heater when it was 35 below, but otherwise kept above freezing.||The girls fresh from grooming (the dogs, not Karen).|
