i have been VERY REMISS but i am catching up on posting the last couple weeks’ work TODAY Continue reading y’all it’s a WALL
but first an ‘I live here’ moment, I took that picture in the Home Despot parking lot, it just DOES that here
also, moar sticks, or as my friend Ari put it, moar styx, which since I have a Hades around, yeah, that works
these styx cost An Lot of moneys but this is the second-to-last big purchase I think
well. for this phase of the project anyways. there will be more later but that can happen AFTER Estrella
Hades is extra-magnificent, at least until he forgets to put his tongue away.
Loiosh, looking introspective.
Deep thoughts about gooshyfud.
Tom is Lorge & Asleep
Hades found a box of packing paper & has been making it into smaller packing paper & also, a nest.
Yes, people _will_ be receiving orders packed in slightly-shredded paper.
…I caught him mid-sneeze. I love my boy. He is SUCH a dork.
He’s also an impatient lil shit in the morning. Continue reading MOM get UP get UP
I kept not getting round to taking pictures while I was framing out the walls, partly because I was busy framing out the walls & partly because, well, framing is framing, it isn’t HARD, there are a zillion places online where you can read about how to do it …
But then I thought, y’all aren’t here to see just anyone do the things, you’re here to see ME do the things.
Also, cat pictures. Continue reading framing!
okay i’ve been doing a pretty terrible job of taking pictures but i took some video?? IT LOOKS LIKE A HOUSE
[ the video is takes while walking around the tinker’s wagon. three of the four walls are framed out. also it is very windy. ]
Further images from the Bicounty Fair, because I have apparently forgotten how to take pictures. Continue reading good piggies
& I BUILT IT. ALL BY MYSELF.
(Turns out an eight foot length of 2×2 framing is pretty easy for me to pick up by myself, so one of the places I thought I’d need help I’ll be able to handle pretty easily on my own.)
The hardest part was ripping the 2x4s down to 2x2s, but even that was no worse than annoying & tedious. I still wish I could find decent 2x2s, but, well.
& yes, that big gap at the center top IS gonna be a window. I like sunlight. A LOT.
I’ll do a post with the actual steps in the process later this week, but right now I just wanna celebrate WALL.
This was posted originally to, a little over a week ago.
If you want to see these posts sooner, & not incidentally help support me & my cats in our travels & such, the way to do that is tofor as little as a buck a month.
I’d REALLY like that.
Tom did NOT sign up for this. Continue reading Unauthorized Snuggles
