Building Up

The longer the winter the deeper the ground freezes, the deeper the hole for the foundation. It’s a simple correlation, all in an effort to keep the building from shifting and cracking during the freeze and thaw of the seasons.

The “footing” for the studio foundation was poured not long ago. Step one in a very stout foundation yet to come. Built nothing like a farmer or rancher would have built a cabin or barn a hundred years ago. Building codes make all the difference.

The Scale of Things

We are a culture of exaggeration. Journalists lead the direction and we seem to follow. Everything is “cool” and “awesome”, or “dreadful.”

I try to keep life’s experiences is perspective. Hence, this morning’s lesson in scale .

The large hole for the small structure that I am currently building is resulting in the exposure of some large rocks.

Check them out for yourself . The coke can is for scale reference.
