it’s a WALL

The front wall of the tinker's wagon is now framed out in 2x2 boards.


(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.

Same thing, different angle. Also the sky is this REALLY amazing blue.

I’ll do a post with the actual steps in the process later this week, but right now I just wanna celebrate WALL.

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 to sign up as one of my Patrons for as little as a buck a month.

I’d REALLY like that.

Yep, I was whining. But that’s how it goes. We had a lovely chat. Turns out my uncle bought a van & has been converting it into a lovely tiny travelling house, so yay! It runs in the family!

… but eventually I arrived at the Despot of Home Improvement, thence to buy All the Things. Continue reading step 1: buy lots thing
