Construction Progress

Our progress continues.  Our cottages are taking shape.  We expect to complete the framing on both of our first two cottages this week.  Then we will be on to the next phase.  The picture shown is the back porch of the Texas Star Cabin.

Stocking the Pond

We stocked the pond this past Saturday with lots of fish.  Cameron Busch is shown in the picture releasing some of those fish.  We stocked the pond with 225 coppernose bluegill sunfish in two different size  categories ranging from 1-5 inches.  We added 150 channel catfish that were 6-8 inches in size.  We also included 2,000 minnows.  They are doing well and already come to the surface quickly at feeding time.  It will be awhile -- but we will offer fishing at the ranch when the fish are big enough.

Foundations Are Complete

We poured the foundations for our first two cottages on Thursday, May 31st.  We started early in the morning and got them poured just before the big rains arrived.  Framing is scheduled to begin next week.  We can't wait to see those walls go up!
