We have recently made another big improvement on the design studio for DbR. J took a weekend and put a new roof on my building. It was another exciting, and vitally important, step in completing it before winter. We had been having some very heavy rainstorms and found that the old roof was leaking terribly. I was very nervous about my equipment and materials getting ruined. Now, that worry is gone. I feel very secure in the fact that I will stay dry.
The old sheds, which were attached to the backside of DbR, have been torn down as well. Once the reusable materials were sorted out, the family enjoyed a bonfire, including s’mores. Mm mmmm… It was a great way of celebrating the continuation of the renovation process. We still have some clean-up to do, as can be seen in the photo, but that seems minor in comparison to the sheds being torn down.
Our next step will be to remove a few trees that are too close to the building so proper measurements can be taken for the new siding. We have plans to dig a drainage ditch and put the driveway in before winter, as well. We have accomplished so much and yet there is so much left to do.
