Progress is still progress no matter how slow it maybe at times ! I saw the quad do you have any photo's of the tractor ? What attachments have you gotten so far and what are you still looking for ?

Seems as though you are settling in, and have many good times ahead.
Thanks much! Yeah, it's definitely beginning to feel like home.

Here are the latest pics of the Homelite Jacobsen. I have a mowing deck, a plow blade, and a snow thrower. Other than some wheel weights, I have what I need. I picked up a nice complete duplicate tractor on Craigslist for $80 when I was just looking for a mowing deck. That's also where I snagged the plow blade...same purchase.

This is the most recent picture I have of the tractor, from May of this year.



Here are before and after shots of the snow thrower attachment. I put some time into rehabbing it this summer.





I'll try to remember to get a picture of the tractor with the rehabbed snow thrower mounted on it.

I know, I was stunned too! The motor has compression, but I haven't taken the time to see if she'll fire. Doesn't matter for the price. It's a spare parts treasure trove.

We had a busy weekend around Shangri La. Three separate projects, and three blog updates.

Framing Worthy Of A Picture

Blueing Up The Kitchen!

Honest! It's not another basement update!

Until next time!

We've been pretty darn neglectful of the blog lately, but we finally got it caught up. Being about 3 months behind, I went with a pictorial update.

Shangri La - Restoring Paradise: Our last post was when?!!

You'll see some pics of the new tractor while you're there. We upgraded from the 27 year old Homelite Jacobsen to a new Kubota BX1860 with a FEL and 54" MMM.
