Thanksgiving in Indiana

I flew out to Indiana for Thanksgiving with my best friend, Indigo, and to see her new house. She has been designing it for years and is now actually completing the structure. It uses pre-cast cement walls, sip panels and metal on the roof and walls of the third floor. The windows, bathroom fixtures and kitchen cabinets are all salvage. Its all been built on the ghost of a shoestring. We had a big Thanksgiving feast there---all the people who contributed and constructed attended.
The day before we were all madly cleaning, the toilets and sinks were being hooked up and the carpenter was still cutting and hammering. Food was being prepared and brains were melting.
The Ohio River was a sheet of liquid diamonds and the sun fell through the myriad of huge windows and illuminated all.

Wow! I'm VERY impressed! I love to read about people who do things like that! My hat's off to all involved.
