This is the view out the front of the house....standing in the loft. The wide open triangular space will be filled with a log gable that has 2 triangular windows. I love the view from this room....both out the back and the front.
The two large windows on either side of the house will be bay windows. Three French doors will fill those spaces on the very front of the house. Eventually, the foundation will be covered with stone and final grading will expose the doorway better. Also jutting from the front of the house will be a deck and a triangular roof over that deck.

They each have their own goat-warming hut (made by Uncle Mike). You might remember that Uncle Mike had instructions for making these warming huts published in the last issue of Hobby Farms. Needless to say, they come in quite handy for many of our animals and fowl.

Jack and I wear quilted snow suits over our clothes....Jack in camo, me in basic brown. Fur-lined bomber hats protect out heads and necks.
As long as it is not raining, the goats are always happy...seemingly unaffected by the cold.
Smoochie doesn't mind the cold at all. He and the rest of the fainters wear fluffy fur coats.
By the way, how do you like his hairstyle??? We probably should have named him Elvis!

In the mornings, during stall cleaning, he often climbs our pantlegs in order to get some special attention. Some might label him a pest....but we love him.
PS: There are icicles in my kitchen!

That little triangle area in the center of this picture, with no beams above it will be a small triangular bathroom....what else would you do with a spare triangle?
