Pine wilt infestations

Our next door neighbor at the new acreage is a professional landscaper with Landmark Landscapes.  He bought his acreage just a few months before we bought ours.  The first time we met him that spring, he pointed out that a few of the numerous Scotch pines on our lot looked like they were succumbing to "pine wilt."  We didn't do anything about it at first, but when he mentioned it again in the fall, we decided it was time to act.

Second meeting with the architect

Stacy and I had our second meeting with our architect this morning.  He had a few rough sketches he wanted to bounce off us before he worked up more detailed plans.  I'm feeling very poor and uncreative right now, and it sucks.
