A break in the bitter cold weather allowed us to get back outside to work on our new studio building this past week. We finished the last of the siding on the south side (as seen with chickens above), and flashed and sided the reverse gable at the north entrance. We were able to get the cupola all buttoned up with our builder the week before - in a snow storm, of course, with Nathan out on the metal roof, tied off to the framing. (We like to keep things exciting, apparently.)
It's great to be working on the studio after a little cold delay, and we're now focusing our efforts inside, insulating our roof system with rigid foam board. It might sound warmer to be 'inside', but there's no heat in the building yet . . . we keep up with the many layers of wool, keep moving, and hope for sunny days.
Slow and steady towards pottery making within these walls come spring . . .
