Merry Christmas! At year's end, we have for you a number of photos of the rewarding progress at the Noble Family Ranch. As a reminder, here's where they were in April and in August. The family is doing most of the work themselves (well, with the aid of all available able-bodied volunteers!) and doing a bang-up job. With the house stripped down and the bones repaired, it is now being put back together. New siding, roofing, insulation, plastering/drywall, electricity and plumbing have been applied; and as you can see, they don't forget to have fun as they work.
