We have been working on The Studio as much as time permits. Jeremy has been wrapping up year- end at work and the snow has been flying for a while now (Halloween in a blizzard isn't much fun... for parents). Slowly but surely we have finally come to a plan, a course of action, of what needs to be done next! More demo... There was obnoxious amounts of old cardboard, wood boards, curtains and garbage sitting on these rafters... oh, and the dust! I will be picking black boogers out of my nose for a week (I was wearing a dust mask). The nice thing about this little house is that everything is straight and dry (well, it looks like it's straight to me, but Jeremy thinks otherwise). We took the scrap wood and cut us up some more Saskatchewan fire wood for next summer.
Jordan and Payton are getting proficient at pulling nails.
Under some of the flooring we found some newspapers from the 40's. I haven't had a chance to really take a good look, but in the help wanted section I did find an ad from my home town of Prince George, BC. A sawmill in Prince George was offering to pay $0.89 an hour for general labour!
