Taking a Leap......

We're taking a leap of faith here and hoping the old saying "build it and they will come......" will hold true.

Last month, our house looked like this..... Do you see the porch at the lower right side of the house?


After a bit of red tape, a lot of waiting and a special permit..... it looked like this....


Late last week, my brother-in-law David sent over a "boom truck" loaded with lots of materials.....


That's our friend Kevin our contractor and his assistant Rory, unloading the supplies. Phoebe and Nessie helped, of course.


You'll have to bear with me for awhile because it's all about the new studio here at the farm. I'll be chronicling the progress and if you want, you can come along for the ride. I'll try to include some other more normal bits now and then but life is really busy with Farmer's Markets and getting ready for Classes at the Farm this summer.

Stay tuned - more tomorrow on the progress.

Ah, but how nice it will be once finished! We have a 3 level deck on the front of our home. We decided we would take the steps and front level off. Upon removing it we discovered much rot and a sloping deck level of the second one. So that had to be removed as well, then the stairs had to completely change in design and a lot of new landscaping to be done. It is a work in progress now as i have been selling items on craigslist cleaning house, while getting the moolah for the stone, etc needed for the landscaping. It kept making me think of the book "if you give a mouse a cookie"

Exciting times! I love little or big projects as long as I'm not the one using the hammer and saw!

Very exciting, Kirsten. It'll be fun to watch the walls go up and to see how you layout the studio. Many photos, please!

You must be psyched. Glad the red tape didn't prevail.
