2016 Events

  

Welbeck Sawmill Wood Expo, Aug 5-6, 2016

  

Older Projects:

  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 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.

         

Minnie, from 2012,  at a pumpkin festival in October 2015

Here's a FABULOUS look!!!  Nancy's horse drawn caravan!

      

 The decoration is Value Village and personal nostalgia, and the effect is stunning!  She says it's finished, but.....

     

 

           

 

Whether you build your caravan yourself or I help you, my goal is to foster your creativity and bring your dream to life.

Gypsy Camp at NERO Canada

  Imagine being surrounded by these awesome circus wagons!
