It has been a while since I posted anything, so I wanted to send a quick update: We’ve applied for our land disturbance permit so we can begin construction of the Big Nerd Ranch facility. Fulton County is supposed to send us approval (or, more likely, comments) any day now.
Walden, Otto, and I went out to the land today to kill some invasive non-native plant life. The daffodils are blossoming. Otto, who is five, took this photo.
Everything in this project has taken longer and cost more than expected, but I am enjoying the process and learning a lot. The people who are helping me (the builder, the architects, the engineers, the landscape architects, etc.) have shown great skill in their work and great patience with me.
The builder gave me the project schedule which indicated that we could be holding classes there a year from now, but I have enough experience now to be skeptical.
On an unrelated note: A lot of my liberal friends are surprised that I am an advocate for free trade and globalization. I finally found a really good explanation of why free trade makes the world a better place: Russ Roberts on Trade
Walden, who is eight, took this photo of me and a daffodil.
