Homey Touches.

Feb

Well, we finished installing the flooring. Everything with it's installation went pretty smooth. The wood I had was just barely enough to finish the job. Each plank spans the entire length of the room so there aren't any joints. For the most part anyway. I did have to piece together the last three. Which, I must say, looks even better than the full length planks because I think it adds a little more flavour to the floor. Had I known this, I probably would have intentionally cut all of them so that there would be jointing across the whole floor.

Another House Build.

Yes, I'm currently in the midst of building another house. It's even smaller than the cob studio but it can fit a lot more people. It will have all the amenities as a typical house, including a kitchen, bathroom, living, eating and sleeping areas. It's going to be three stories tall, with the flue of the fireplace passing through each floor so that every level will receive radiant heat. Oh, and did I mention it's a doll house?

An Evening In The Cob Studio.

Feb

My what warm weather we are having! So far, all winter long it has been pretty mild. Not a whole lot of snow and just a handful of cold snaps. I'm not complaining at all, but I'm just not so sure it's a good thing to have such strange weather. Generally, after February is when things start warming up. It's either going to be an extra early Spring, or a really late Winter. But since the weather was especially mild today, Phoenix and I decided to head out to the cob studio and get working on the flooring.
