As you know, Dave finished the electrical rough in at the lodge less than one month ago. Since then, the entire lodge has been insulated, and the sheet rock is up. During the next two weeks, a hired crew will be mudding and taping all the sheetrock. Yesterday (Saturday) Dave and I went to Kalispell and picked out the tongue and groove 6″ wide wood slats that will go on the ceiling of the dining room (which is the room you see in this first photo). We also picked out some color cards for paint. If any of you would like to come out and help us paint, clean up, and put up door and window trim, we’d love to have you. But if you can’t, please pray for us. We have dedicated The Shepherd’s Place to the Lord and His work, and we pray that everything that happens on these grounds will bring glory and honor to Him.
This is the dining room now fully insulated.
The back wall of the 30 x 30 dining room. The plastic is the vapor barrier.
This is one of the bedrooms. There is special sound proofing insulation on the ceiling so that people walking around upstairs in the dining room can’t be heard.
A close up of that special sound proofing insulation.
Oh happy day! The drywall is up!! This is the smaller bedroom.
One of the bedrooms. Most of the window isn’t showing because of the sheetrock.
The women’s bathroom.
The laundry room where the freezers will go too. That door goes to under the stairs storage.
The entry way.
The men’s bathroom.
The downstairs hallway.
The kitchen! It’s 20 x 15 – big enough for lots of people to help with dishes and cooking!
Another view of the entry way. The coat closet is to the left.

AND FINALLY, A FEW PHOTOS WE TOOK TODAY DURING OUR WALK IN WOODS NEAR SWISHER LAKE – SPRING IS HERE!!
It takes awhile for spring to show itself in the Rocky Mountain ranges, but at a warm 68 degrees today, the crocuses are blooming!
Jacob, our border collie is coming back up after getting a drink at Swisher Lake. It’s hard to tell in this photo, but the new green grass is beginning to overtake last year’s dead growth.
