This weekend the last of the earthwork around the house was completed. The root cellar is now completely buried, the cistern is buried up to its concrete top, and the exterior walls of the house are buried (about 3 feet on the south and east sides, and 8 feet on the west and north sides). I added these pictures to Part 4 on the menu to the left.
Also added some new pictures of the interior, including the wood stove! See Part 4.5 of the pictures.
