What’s that you say? Your life seems an empty hollow shell and only pictures of an ongoing build with actual walls will satisfy you? Well I happen to have the very thing!
Ok, that is a lot of pictures of wooden beams but I just can’t get enough! I was so happy I actually hugged one of my walls. We have walls! Granted the ones on the south side are mostly gaps where the whacking great big windows are going to go but we have a first floor!
Standing on a solid floor, surrounded by solid Canadian timber, brought home to me that this is real. This is happening. We have brought to life this imagined thing, it will exist in the world because of us. Where there was empty land and rotting vehicles there is now a house, a home. There will be a farm, filled with life. It is a bit much to take in sometimes so I simply switch off my brain and take in the view. The unending green of trees and fields reflect their calm back at me. This is where I am going to live. I am soothed.
By Canada Day we will have a framed main floor, it will be next week before they begin putting in the joists and framing the bedrooms. So I promise it will be a little while before I have yet another long series of photos of my being formed house.
Ok just one more.
Please join me in running around the room in little circles whilst emitting excited peeping sounds. Double yay and a dose of wahoooo!
