Excuses, excuses...

I'm sorry to report that we haven't made a ton of progress on the shed this week.  It appears that as sure as spring has sprung so has the social season that seems to accompany it.  My notebook is filling up with measurements on parts and pieces that need to be made, so the shop work should be heavy in the coming weeks.  Updates will certainly follow as time allows.  In other exciting news, the kerosene lanterns have shipped and they have already made their way from Germany to Canada, and from Canada to California. As of tonight, they are somewhere between the purple needlegrass state and the City of Fredericksburg.

One thing that has kept us busy/distracted is the readying of the Tiki Bar for its summer sojourn on the river.  The party barge will spend most of its time stationed at the boat ramp, standing proudly as a welcoming landmark and comparable in grandeur to that of the gateway arch in St. Louis.  However, much like the men who gathered in 1775 on a township green located in the heart of the Massachusetts's Bay Colony, it will be ready at a moment's notice.  Unlike the Lexington Minuteman, it will be ready for a boat drink and a possible disco party.  I've attached a few photos of the progress.  Feel free to take a gander.  Hopefully we'll be back on track with updated Blacksmith Shed pics by next week.

Front Access Bridge added for, well, access.

She's a mess but thats part of the process.
