roof.

the rafters are up and all the sheeting is done. i'm going to try and get the plywood on the roof tomorrow, if not then friday. the soffit, fascia, outside trim and siding come next and sometime this weekend i'll put in the permanent posts for the porch. things may slow down a bit after the roof because i'm going to need an extra set of hands from here on and those may be hard to come by. i'm amazed i've gotten as far as i have by myself(my wife helped me square up the floor and raise the first wall, credit where credits due) but the finish work can't be fudged so i'll need someone to help so it looks nice.


i've opted not to have a flat ceiling on the inside. this may look like a jumbled mess to some, but the rafters that don't go all the way to the peak are half of the ceiling in the showroom. this took me awhile to figure out, i've never done a ceiling like this on a hipped roof before.


i get antsy when i'm not doing claywork, in case you couldn't tell. i have a clay batch drying in the racks now so i can get some work out before the homesale. i think i'm going to end up doing one more firing in the wood kiln because it won't get rebuilt in time, i think she'll make it.

so long for now.

Looks great. I wish you were here to help me with my shop. Maybe we could swap out some time here for some time there?

Please move to Chapel Hill and build me one of these! I love this, it's exactly what I want for a studio. I can just see myself in there with my wheel......

No no, move to Norfolk, here in the UK...I'd find it most useful to have you around... and you'd love it here, there's none of that sunny warm weather you get over there... oh...
