Well, with the help of a 12 pack, my awesome construction crew got all the lumber moved to the site and got a floor built yesterday!
This "storage shed" is just going to be set on blocks so that if I really love it, one day when we move to the farm of our dreams, I'll put it in the truck and take it with me :)
It was a beautiful day, warm, Carolina blue skies, and I had two smart, crazy, and very funny guys here to help me. Thanks to Ryan and Jake for busting their asses yesterday!
Thanks also to my lovely Wesley for her help and for cheering me on through all of this!
My life is in utter chaos right now. There is lumber and pottery stuff everywhere I turn and it's the only thing on my mind right now. Git er done!!!!
I'm sorting out everything that I want to move into the building and everything that needs to be thrown out here on the deck, sort of like a staging area. I just noticed that Cindy Shake's raven banner is hanging there, I think it will be a nice addition.
Thanks to all of you for your comments here on my blog. I am reading every one of them and loving them. Sorry I am not replying right now to each individual comment the way I like to but once I check email, return email, read my blog and read all of your blogs, I have to get up and go do something. There isn't much sitting still right now, so keep the comments coming, I love the support, and I'll get back to the comments once this is over. I have been thinking of those of you that have had studio construction, Meredith and Chris with their fires, Micheal Kline when he was building his, Joseph Sand and Alex Matisse who just went off on their own after leaving Mark's place, Judy who moved her son out and studio in, then it flooded, and the rest of you who have posted about your studios. We are a tough bunch aren't we, to go through what we do just to get our hands and everything else around us dirty and then make something that we hope others will love. Crazy potters, all of us!!!
