Returning

image of dark november sky over two lane county roadThe renovations are still being finished up. A few little details before I can get an occupancy permit and before I can take the final ‘finished’ photos and make a second post with the last months of reno adventures.

In the mean time, I am going to try to return to a semi-regular posting schedule. Read more “Returning”

What Have I Been Doing? The Big Reno

You may have noticed that I haven’t posted in a long time.

I’ve been caught up in a big project here at home.

Partnered with the Endeavour Centre‘s Sustainable Building Course, I am renovating a concrete out building attached to my house.

It’s a 20 year dream come true.

Check it out.

And here are some links that you might find useful about some of the materials.

Tadelakt

Poraver

Hempcrete

Earthen Floor

I’ll put up another set of photos when it’s all done.

And there will be a final open house on September 26 in the evening if you’re interested in checking it out in person.

When it’s all done, I hope to get back to my regularly scheduled photo posts.
