Buckled down and got my composting toilet framed in...

And got the wall up for the shower too!

If you look to the right inside the tub, you will see two white tanks. Those are my water tanks! So the tub will be raised up to accommodate one underneath (I'm still short enough to stand in it and shower) with room for the drain plumbing. The other will go somewhere else, not quite sure exactly where. 
Moving Forward at full speed!

Wind and Rain

Moving forward with a small detour:)
Had some trees go down in the wind and rain, so......
Had to do chainsawing
Both front and back yards...

Cut some slices for my Daughter.
Then got rid of 500 vinyl LP's. 
So, I feel good even though I haven't worked on my THOW the last few days.

Got the first 3 inches of insulation in, will put the rest in place after the plumbing and electrical are in!

See how bright it is with all the downstairs windows in!

Extra insulation in the storage loft. 
Now, onward to interior walls! 
After I get my truck out of the shop:(

Full Speed Ahead!

 My Darling Daughter came by and helped me install my last three downstairs windows! Hooray!!

Both sides now have two, the back has 2 , one downstairs and one in the sleeping loft.
So now I can finally start on the final interior layout downstairs!
Still have 5 upstair windows to go in, but I'm happy to have forward movement!

Bath Tub

Progress moves ever onward. For my area, the latest sign of that is the opening of our very own Tractor Supply Co. Store!
Perfect timing for me:) I was looking for what I wanted to use as a tub and shower base. Needing room to put a shower chair inside, I was looking at a few options.
I was lucky enough to be invited to a pre-opening event with a $25 off coupon...and I found this!
Perfect! Manager Hall Aiken and all his staff are friendly, knowledgeable and quick to offer help.
Of course, the store is chock full of things that could be very useful for a THOW builder!
One more step forward for me and for our little valley:)
