Getting ready to set up for landing near Randolph Utah a few weeks ago. Got to share the air with some of my best flying pals. Cody, Greg and Steve. Beautiful place. BTW, the time stamp in the left upper corner is wrong.
Fall is always great for flying. Cool temps and amazing fall colors enhance the flying experience!
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.
The kitchen with all viking appliances. Walnut cabinets with quartz countertops.

Looking west out the dining room. Great sunsets!
More dining room views!

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!
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.
