2015 Events

Georgian Homesteading and Survival Show, Aug 2-3, 2015


Welbeck Sawmill Wood Expo, Aug 7-8 2015

2015 Projects:

A new idea for us:   a fully-insulated chicken coop,  on a simple 4'x5' trailer.  `The girls` are happy in their new home and laying delicious country eggs in the spacious boxes.


After the first, I  suddenly found myself building a second chicken coop, in a hurry, to be ready for the Georgian Homesteading and Survival Show.  Building in modular pieces with plywood is certainly faster!


Next, my cedar reading room caravan. 


 Many thanks to my brother Rob who made the beautiful doors.

And many thanks also to Skip Izon, of Shadow River Boatworks, for cutting the boards for the cedar strip ceiling. 


The writing desk in front of the bay window converts to a bed. 


I'm back to working with stained glass, so custom windows are now a possibility.
