BETTER BARN

Changes are taking place in the barn.  The second floor is getting fancy.  We are going to have walls.  Glenn has his portable infinity wall when he photographs his sculptures down to a science, but as always, I struggle.  My sculptures are essentially 2-D and they hang on a wall.  The only wall currently big enough is in the bedroom.

And although the parallel shadows add context when photographing a piece, they are probably distracting.  Smooth walls would be such a help.  This bedroom wall used to be the outside of the house.

Looking up from the ground level, the ceiling and walls are going up.  This side of the space will remain open, as will the corresponding back, and Glenn will make custom railings for here.

This is a view to the front of the barn from the second floor.  I have never seen gray-green sheetrock before.  It contains a moisture barrier.  Love the linear structure of the studs in building.  Often finished houses seem far less interesting to me than when they are a complex armature.  Didn’t want a ceiling in the gallery space, but Glenn covered my rock with his paper.  He’s probably right.  It would be messy without a ceiling.

The railing that Glenn has been saving for years will switch from left to right, and of course he will modify it to be more artful.  All of our bicycles hang from the first floor ceiling and define spaces in an interesting kind of way.

Now the sheet rock guys are moving on to the unfinished bathroom.

  1. Amazing. So, I must have missed something. (Sorry, been off the grid for a while). Are you moving into this barn? What will this upper space become. Love it. So industrious.

    1. yeah? where have you been? just started seeing you again on fb. the upper space is a gallery of a sort. a place to show, a place to photograph. and best thing, it just got its own glider at the flea mkt this morning! life is good.
