Shakes and ladders
Here's a recent piece for Cottage Life magazine on building green.
When the nice weather finally arrives I start losing my mind. This year I haven't been able to break away to the cottage. Been thinking about it a lot.
It's a long way up
While Tim was painting holes in his roof I was fixing mine. I needed to get out of the studio and get some fresh air.
Not the most fun you can have, but the view is nice. This is grueling labor, but I did a lot of this when I was working my way through university. I decided to see if I was still up for the challenge
I was lucky to get a week of weather that wasn't too hot and looked to be pretty dry.
A good solid perch.
Due for a change
I'm happy to report I didn't fall off. I don't even want to consider that. I think I spent more time setting up and taking down the scaffolding than shingling. I needed to make sure I had a good safe base to work from.
The studio looks good from up here
Got vertigo?
I'm ready for a real vacation now! Can't wait to fire up the sauna up at the cottage and treat some tired muscles.
