Life Imitating Art

Tuesday, June 12, 2018

Here's a series of pictures I recently took.

A downburst close to where I live in Layton Utah. It's been a very dry year so far here in northern Utah! The storms have been few and far between, and very isolated.

I guess It's about time for a few pics of the finished residence, LR3!

The entry is oriented facing north. Some of the finishing touches include, Ipe hardwood (the red tinted siding) which is a Brazilian hardwood. Local sandstone and galvanized deck railing.

The roof design is an all hip roof system. I remember getting the roof design back from the truss company. It looked like a jig saw puzzle from another planet! Luckily I had a great framer that brought a crew out to install the roof trusses and plywood skin. My nephew Josh Judkins and I framed the rest of the house with some help from Steve McGill.

Looking from the dining area into the living room. The stairwell leads to two additional bedrooms and a media room.

Looking west out the dining room. Great sunsets!

Here's a video I put together of a flight from last Saturday. The site is Randolph, Utah in the northeast corner of the state. It's a site that I fly quite a bit.

I drove up with a few friends from Salt Lake. Initially it looked like it might not be a great day. Earlier two pilots launched and managed just under an hour of airtime before the conditions shut down. Another pilot and myself waited it out till just about 7pm. Our patience was rewarded as the conditions improved and we flew for about an hour in the smoothest air!

Getting Concrete

Finally getting a driveway!

Today we started the driveway process. It actually
started a week ago with gravel and grading.
To see this come together
creates a little light at the end of the tunnel!

Cody landing his Millennium in the big LZ at Randolph

This past Sunday Cody and I flew Randolph. It was a great soaring
day as I was able to easily thermal around for a few hours.
Cody schooled me with his rigid wing. He managed about 2.5 hours
and flew to the Idaho border, tagged Wyoming and ended his flight back in Utah.

And The Process Still Continues

The south side of the house. The deck supports are diagonal braces to allow for the maximum
usable yard area. The slope starts about 20 feet from the house.

 Stucco crew. 

One of the jobs Julie just loves (haha). Picking stuff out.
