Rediviva is getting too big for her britches and she’s just itching to stand alone outside. Well, in reality, Garrett is the one who’s overdo for a major change! We all are really. He cut down the front face of the shed and it’s still not enough. Now that the weather is just getting better and better and rain storms are a little less frequent we are taking the steps to remove the shed.
Garrett’s begun building separate stands away from the shed to store all of our lumber. Including new mast stands (those were fun to move!) He’s slowly realizing just how much lumber we do have! “No wonder it felt so cramped in the shed. Look how much wood we have!” He said. Spoiled. Redwood, Black Locust, Douglas Fir, Port Orford, Western Red, and more scrap than he can manage.
While Garrett was fully busy with his wood Hoffa and I were fiberglassing the cabin
walls and laying a thick layer of epoxy to coat the deck evenly. Everything on deck is now glassed and weather tight! We will still add another layer of glass to the cabin walls and make sure where the cabin attaches to the deck is solid.
We are just checking one thing right after another off the list of to-do’s before trucking! I think I can say it, although I shouldn’t (I’ll knock on wood,) we are definitely not getting stuck in the Northwest for another winter!!!
We just can’t wait to see Rediviva stand in all her glory free from the shed. I can’t wait to show you. She already looks so fantastic with the little sneak peak view:
