Progress

Anyone who visited us at the log cabin studio,  knows how jammed packed our small space was. It's now empty, and last Wednesday we did a final cleaning!




 It was a huge relief to get it done. All that's left to move is the kiln. We will fire it once more before the Celebration of Seagrove Potters show and then start deconstruction. It's a small kiln so it should go quickly.


The rest of our days and evenings have been spent scraping paint and priming walls in our new space. The ceiling is painted plywood. Power washing removed a lot of peeling paint but there was still quite a bit of scraping to do. After scraping, we washed it with TSP and water. 
Last night Jeff started to texture the ceiling with a mixture of paint and joint compound. It will help to hide roughness of the plywood. He experimented with a few textures before deciding on what looks and works the best. Such a messy job! He was covered in paint and joint compound by the end of the night. His time spent as a drywall hanger, in his youth, has served us well.


It's exciting to see our new space come together. Progress this week should be very big...
stay tuned for updates!
