Winter really is a lovely time to be outside. The skies are gorgeous, the air crisp, the world a little more quiet. We've had quite a bit of new snow here lately, and the temperatures dipped way down below zero and then way back up above freezing. We've worked through most everything, wearing puffy down jackets, two hats each, even ski pants. Working off the ladder has been a little dicier with the slippery ground and our minds weren't quite as clear with sub-zero wind chills, but we're making steady progress hanging ship lap siding on our new studio building.
This last photo is the wall that faces west - and the one we see when we pull down the lane and into the driveway. It sure is nice to have the siding on! We've actually wrapped around the south (i.e. the last!) side of the building, and are hoping to get to the cupola and the reverse gable soon.
We're really looking forward to prepping for the radiant concrete slab downstairs, followed by a bit of insulation (OK, a lot) in there. And installing doors and building stairs . . . oh, so much to come!
It's been a great start to 2013.
