The compass rose is almost finished, thanks to Rob Roy Mackey for the bricks. The points indicate true north etc. The brick pattern is 11 degrees west of true north and corresponds to magnetic north. This is essentially our layout for the buildings. The Ecohouse is oriented on the true north axis and the Studio is on the magnetic lines. The reason for the difference is purely aesthetic. In the other photo, Kappy and Ripley are enjoying a barbecue at the new fire pit.

The pad for the brick patio is ready. We put bricks on end around the perimeter and filled the bottom with leftover pieces of granite countertop and gravel. On top of this will go sand and then some pattern of brick , yet to be decided. In the back of the studio there is now a firepit which we plan to inaugurate soon with a bbq.
