ready and waiting

I've just glazed and packed a kiln full of pots...most of which I threw a week yesterday!

Having a little warm weather works wonders!!

The warmth has left us for a while, some of Scotland has ten inches of snow, only a day or so after record high temperatures.
We've just had some real rain, the first for a few weeks. Just heard that parts of Australia have had their first rain in four months...and I'm sure other places have been waiting longer.

Tonight I'm having an evening off...I'm back making sheep as well, so two jobs in one day!!

In my browsing I've had this brought to my attention.. well worth watching...

I'd bet you and the Carpenter could whip up a few of those "heat tubes" from some salvaged computer fans and an old sheet or two. Thanks for a very interesting video.

I imagine these houses are so much easier to build in the US. In Yerp the planning moguls would throw a fit!

that is a good idea WOL...

They do indeed Cro. I think the strategy is to do as much as is possible without anyone knowing.

Awesome. Not only the house and its innovative ideas but also the guy who had the guts and drive to just say no and go out there and do it.
Living in a plywood tent for years too.
I have a lot of respect for people like that. Thanks for sharing Gwynneth.
