What we've been up to...

Autumn is coming to Il Poggio Secco.
There are fewer flowers this year because it's been very dry.

The shed and fence are almost done.
One gate down, two to go.

The fenceline had to be stepped to follow the slope.

Front view with the now bermuda-free bed.
The circular concrete slab in the foreground is for the fountain.

Press the flesh, our story in print!

Looking back over the past posts, I forgot to post the story that the Austin Business Journal did on our build, and the unique story of our very Tuscan farm house in the Texas Hill Country. Peggy wasn't home from work when the photo guy came to snap some pics :( , but they did a fun two page spread on our story which can be found HERE.

Recently, trade publication Radio and Production interviewed Jim for the September 2008 issue. Il Poggio Secco was also featured in that article as well. The teaser is HERE, and we'll post the pdf of the article in October after it runs this month in print.
