Doors are in.  Took a little extra work…….

yes, that’s a chainsaw!  That vertical beam he is trimming is over 100 yrs old, hand hewn.  Not perfectly straight or square.  Actually, that one was a touch twisted.  He needed to “trim” it a little.

And my new french door is in:

I am really liking it!

This next one is so you can see 2 more new doors….. looking east at west side of house:

Next is the north side of garage….

And last, the front of the house.  I am facing west, taking the picture of the east side of the building.  Man, thats alot to paint.  AFTER Steve finishes siding the oldest part of the house.

Makes me tired to think about all that painting.  Anybody want to volunteer to come help?  Paintbrushes, paint, food, drink, sleeping bag and air mattress provided.  And certainly lots of time for visiting.  All volunteers gladly accepted.


Wonder what this pretty bug is?  I think I will go do a little internet research to see if I can find out.

    Gayle, AWESOME bug photo!
    I think that’s a Six-Spotted Tiger beetle. I’m not a bug expert…I just found this website and the picture looks pretty close.

    How exciting! Boy, it is happening sooo fast. You won’t believe how freeing it is to have a “real” studio. And, WOW, you and Steve have really expanded on that existing building.

    Best of luck. Will look forward to seeing how it looks when you get all settled into it.

    Have a good day!
