This is just laid out. We will be grouting it tomorrow. Then we will use Enhancer to bring out the color of the pebbles.

Hey, look who showed up to watch! She is a bit on the small side for a moose but she is welcome just the same! I think it’s funny how moose are not really shy animals.

I bought a Gold Mine too, about 7 or so years ago...

I'm working on it right now and it is running even though I need a new backglass and a bunch of bumper caps. Here it is...

Marvel Manufacturing's Gold Mine, made just a few months after the invention of the flipper...

Marvel Manufacturing's Gold Mine,

Wow, a working Gold Mine! I bet that backglass will look really nice when it is restored to it's original beauty. Very Cool!

Got the floor finished in the main room. We started the brick board for the walls in there today.

Ok got the brick paneling up and I am finishing up the trim. And no, there is no bathroom yet. But, I submitted my permit to drill the well! Most likely in August.

I hiked up to that Rock Outcropping ^^^
and here are the views from there of the Mine and the Continental Divide.

The last pic is of the general neighborhood. I built the Octagonal house (lower center) and sold it last year for 600k. Bought the Mine for a song and got lots more property.

I'm following and have been really enjoying the pics and updates. Keep up the good work!

Quoted from mrbillishere:

Keep up the good work!

Thank You sir! Just seems things have slowed a bit since I applied for the well permit. I am also waiting on funds to arrive to move forward with the Well and septic and then a Bathroom!

Really been enjoying playing White Water and Fish Tales at break time. But the work continues. Broke ground on the septic on Thursday.
