I thought I’d post a little about the progress of our house rebuilding!
The most exciting thing is that half of the openings in the roof for the sky lights have been rough cut and light is already pouring in and illuminating things in a most magical way.
Compare the original house skylights of Then …
to the rough cut openings of skylights of Now.
Fantastic! I recognize my dearest of old friends Light & Shadow, among the beams.
Oh how I have missed them!
Its been a really late spring folks, with gobs of beautiful rain, and it is still a bit chilly & breezy, but now the perpetual deep blue skies & sunshine is on its way! The foliage from the year-old shoots from burned trees are growing rapidly, and the flowers are bursting open everywhere . . .
Soon will be siding and roofing…
And at the same time Jeff is now rebuilding the deck, with a little bit of my help. Rebuilding has been slow going all winter, and while our county beurocrats have not shown any effort to hasten things, our dedicated few builders commuting from far away have stayed through the worst of storms, and have remained positive and encouraging, so now at last it looks like things will speeding up.
I meditate everyday on being ‘back home’ in our rebuilt house, setting up my loft room and setting new lofty goals for myself ! It is so comforting and gratifying to see how much it looks and feels like our original house, after all it is the very same kit, and its easy to feel like its all just a dream, which I am soon to wake from. I am amazed at some of the blog readers that have commented, apparently keeping track of me and the progress since the wildfire , and that is so heartwarming. I am getting a clearer vision now of the next equinox being a time when I will be a busy bee reacquainting myself with my old routine again.
But do tell me, how is the weather where you are?
