Jen and I had volunteered for the Travis Audubon, and the pay off was a private hike on the famous Shield Ranch. The largest private tract of land in Travis county. Its an amazing place and they are doing a great job of keeping it the way it was 100 years ago..

Home Improvement

September 22, 2014  |  General  |  3 Comments

Now that we have been living in our place for a while, we are slowly working on little projects to improve the house.. Just recently we had the masonry in the fireplace fixed up and we got a new Gas log system with a remote for ” click” instant fire.. we selected the Split Texas bonfire as our log and look for the fire…and Kudo’s to Capitol Chimney for a great job..
