In print!

We are so excited about this! Ryan works as a graphic designer for Seven Days, an alternative weekly newspaper based in Burlington. When they found out about our building project, they asked if they could include it in their annual "Green Issue." Of course we said yes. So Ryan and I spent the weekend working on our center spread. It was a perfect division of labor. I wrote the copy and he created the beautiful (and informative) visuals and layout. It's such a nice combination of our strengths! We really are proud :) And it was super fun to partner on a project...I hope we work as well together on the actual construction.

Speaking of construction...countdown to excavation: 3 weeks. The well goes in this Friday. Assuming we draw the requisite yield (which we expect we will), we can apply for our administrative permit next week. We then have to post the land for two weeks before breaking ground. I'll try to get out there and take some pictures of the staked property. It's amazing to finally see where our front door will be.

Anyway, here is a link to the story on the Seven Days website. And here's a shot of what it looks like in print (if you click on the image, it will open in a larger window). Thanks to SD for including us!
