oday my mom helped me haul a suburban-full of 2 x 8’s to Conrad’s, where we spent the morning planing them. Along with the new posts in the barn, they are also from the lumber I made years ago while clearing a piece of my friend’s woods. They were cut extra thick so they can be re-straightened when planed, after they have finished drying. My grandpa will be using these 2 x 8’s to frame in the new windows I am refinishing.
The Intention of this Blog
is to share my adventure of repurposing my family farm into art space and re-rooting myself in an 'old fashioned' way of life with my folks, the original Do-It-Yourselfers. It is a platform for me to share with others the things that I learn as I apprentice myself to my parents and grandparents.
"You cannot express, whatever your walk in life, unless you have a system of expression; and you cannot have a system of expression unless you have a prior system of cognate thinking and feeling; and you cannot have a system of thinking and feeling unless you have had a basic system of living." -Louis Sullivan "The Kindergarten Chats: The Art of Expression: 1"
