If you show up at the house during the day, it is a bee-hive of activity: framers hammering, heating guys sawing through metal, the electricians drilling. But last night, we drove out just before sundown with some friends. We were standing in the family room and Ed asked: "Did you hear that?" We all listened carefully but shook our heads and said "No, we don't hear a thing." "Exactly, my point," he responded.
Yes, it is very quiet out there, just a bit of wind rustling through the house.
