Spring 2022 started with a naive notion that I could build my own studio in the back yard.
I wanted to focus on what I could do instead of just rolling with all the can't do's that the pandemic presented.
I spent hours sketching my ideas on scraps of paper and I used the "school of google" to find answers to my endless "how to" questions.
Hours and hours, dusk to dawn, my project is coming to life!
I have learned so much on this construction journey. Lots about building code, but also lots about myself and how far I can push my body and mind towards a goal which fulfills an essential need to have a space to work.
The days are getting shorter and shorter and I am forced to do some other work to keep some income flowing, but my goal to get a roof on before Haida Gwaii winter arrived was achieved.
Progress is slow right now but I am taking the shorter days and weather as they come... because this is Haida Gwaii and that's just what you do.
