Sundance Film Festival

The Sundance Film Festival starts this week up here in Park City.  The private HOA Facebook group that we belong to advised us to stock up on groceries, fuel, and alcohol early because by Wednesday, everything will be depleted.  When we lived in Bountiful, we were never affected by Sundance.  Now that Park City is where we do all our shopping, we’ll have to always remember to plan ahead! In other news, the kitchen ceiling of the rental cabin is now leaking as well.  The owner definitely needs a new…

Future Mountain Home

I mentioned in an earlier blog post about how expensive it is to build homes up here in the mountains.  Even though our future mountain home is on the small side (~1700 square feet), the cost to build it (in addition to the price of the land) puts it way out of our budget range.  We’ve considered several different scenarios of what we can do–from building a kit home to leaving parts of the home unfinished to be completed at a later date.

An Outdoor Adventure

Andy just started a new business up here (in addition to his full-time job in Elko).  He’ll be doing snow removal with his new tractor.  He’s already got three customers that live near the rental cabin.  One of his customers is also having Andy take care of her cabin because she can only be here part-time.  She asked Andy if he could put the tracks on her Polaris Ranger and told him that we could use it anytime.  We decided to take it on an outdoor adventure and go see…
