Trip to Bend, OR for a getaway!

On Feb 24th, we headed down to Bend, OR for a little mid-winter getaway. We stayed at a friend's corporate house at the Pronghorn Community (Fazio/Nicklaus courses) which was totally amazing. Allen and Rosy joined us from Walla Walla, and Dave, Lily and Alex came down from Portland too!

We visited the High Desert Museum - it's really neat, a little indoors, a little outdoors....


Mission of the High Desert Museum:

Interior Trim

It's a slow go on the interior trim, but you must remember, Ron is recycling wood (oak) demoed from one of his previous jobsites. Lots of sanding, trimming and staining happening in our garage! He started with framing the doors, then he created the window sills, and now is on the baseboards. He's doing an amazing job!
This is where it begins in the garage...

The door trim looks amazing!
