I do love my life mostly out of doors.
That said, we humans are vulnerable in so many ways.
In winter we freeze and in the summer the mosquitoes torment us.
To protect ourselves we've built two fully enclosed shelters here at our place.
The second is a workshop which we started last fall.
We closed it up from the weather in October.
The 16' x 24' space became a cozy place to spend winter days,
just a crisp walk a from our mini family home to the other edge of the property.
Even unfinished, it's had a rich and varied life.
Besides a workshop it's been schoolhouse, guest house, camp kitchen and general purpose clubhouse.
This week the girls helped us painting the final trim and nailing up the siding.
Now she's finished and we can move on to the next project.
If all goes well, we will have built our wash house for the coming winter.
