I don't know. I am waiting until the doors are installed before I spend a night in the house shell. Skunks are a real issue here and I would rather not have one stumble over me.

I bet you can see the Milky Way if you're far enough away from large metro areas. As an amateur astronomer this is important to me, but unfortunately I live within a huge light dome in the city. I would love to live under dark skies.
We have skunk issues too. We smell them all the time, especially during early morning hours before dawn.
Coccoons come around often too, buy only while I'm BBQ'ing....lol...
Your new home is gonna be gorgeous!

What a difference one day makes. Both views are of the north/back wall. The fellows are grateful for the shade!

my kitchen!!

Here is a recent view of the kitchen area. I am standing in the living room, looking across the dining room into the kitchen. The room with the angled door is the pantry. I'll attach a photo of the floor plan too.
