shake-n-bake, and ah halped...

Thanks to the handy and handsome G, there was not only an exceedingly pleasant amount of rest and relaxation this weekend, but a most productive amount of repair happened as well, involving some of my favorite kinds of shopping, at places like Mr Plywood...

Here is a tune, just to get in the right mood...


This is what the east and southeast corners of the workroom ceiling have looked like for the last several years...

First, we added some additional bits of my favorite mylar bubblepack to fill in the larger holes...

Before adding the larger plywood patch, there was a chance to add a bit of decorative detail to part of the repair...

We were able to use a great deal of salvaged lumber for the various support framework and ledger boards.


Eventually, when the weather is warmer, I shall probably paint it all white, so as to help it blend in better visually, but for now, 'tis a good and wonderful thing to not have the cold November wind whistling through the workroom!

from this ...
to this ...


Feeling right clever about putting the dryer up on a pallet mounted with casters, made it really easy to move it out of the way for the ceiling repair to happen. Behind the washer and dryer is one of the original wooden structural walls of Acorn Cottage; my intention is to put storage shelving up on the side nearest the doorway, carefully allowing for safe access (if needs be) to the wiring that snakes across that side of the wall. There's a salvaged old multi-paned window tucked away in the workroom, that will have the glass replaced with mirror, and get mounted on the wall above the dryer, to help bounce more light into that dark-ish corner of the room, but that is another project for another day, in a warmer time of year...
