This post is about the current state of construction on 3 Squared (see the two previous Hawaii project posts).

I recently returned from a trip to Hawaii, during which I had a platform built and a yurt put up on my property. I bought a 24′ yurt from Pacific Yurts – they are at www.yurts.com – which came as a kit. The project took several weeks, due to a number of delays, typical of Hawaii, but it was completed by the time I finally left at the end of July.

While my project was happening, Carl’s land was being cleared and prepared for building. I took a lot of photos of these activities, and I plan to post them on my website when I launch the new version of it (any day now!).

We have a driveway/road going up the middle of the land, and I have a driveway off of that which goes to a cleared space 80′ x 100′. There is now a yurt there, and a water catchment tank will be set up next to it soon.

Carl has been living in Hawaii since October, 2007, and has been staying at a place very near our land for several months. He is looking forward to being able to live on Three Squared. I am still located on the mainland, in Santa Rosa, and will be so as long as my beloved cats are here. Both of them are preparing to leave the planet, dying as they are of old age and disease. They are comfortable and happy for the most part, and I am pledged to care for them thru their lives and their deaths. When they go, I plan to travel to other places, and try being in Hawaii for a while to see what it is like for me to live there.

I may end up living in Sonoma County, California, I may end up living in Hawaii, I may end up somewhere else. I won’t know until I explore it, at least that’s how it seems right now.

In any case, I think I will be able to do a lot of writing in Hawaii, which I am obviously wanting to do!

    Wow! How exciting that you have the yurt up!! Next time I get over to the big island, I will definitely pay three squared a visit and would love to see the lava tube!!!

    I am still trying to form a plan to put up a structure on my land..but I’ve been too busy with my mainland life to take any action or even visit my land..it’s been over a year since I’ve been to the BI…I miss it and am hoping to visit again soon…when ATA airlines collapsed, my access to the BI was severely limited, as I can no longer afford to pay the airfares!! My kids and I had been going there once a year for vacation.. they both love it there, too! I love the energy of Pele and the intensity of the BI; it really is a magical, place, isn’t it?

    Good luck and hope to be in contact soon..!!

    Thank you Lorissa! It’s good to hear from you.

    I tried to remember exactly where your land is when I was there last and wandered around the area; they have improved the roads since I drove them last. Please do let me know when you are going next and I will make proper arrangements for you to visit Three Squared. And check out Hawaiian Airlines; they seem to be lowering the fares again these days…

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    With love,
