Are you toasty? perpetually feeding the stove? both?
Also, do the windows provided enough light? How is the cheek-by-jowl 400sqft living working out... does it encourage getting outside? Could you happily consider living in this situation for an extended time? year? multiple years? Can we safely say it is infinitely better than the tent ? :) Do you 'escape' very often to 'civilization' at the Base Camp? Have many visitors?

Are the cows doing okay without a barn? Is cooking challenging? (I think I'd be eating often at the base, what with a 'kitchen commander' and all :)
btw, what are the blue exclamation points for? Oh, I see now... at the bottom... anyone can independently decide that something should be getting more attention :)
