We bought our little home a couple of years ago and one of the big selling points was the large barn like structure that sat behind the house. One thing about owning a letterpress is always having to secure a place to house this big heavy industrial machine. Since moving it around can be an expensive and worrisome task (and one we had already done a couple of times) we were looking for a real home for it. The only problem was that this building that came with our house was that it needed A LOT of work. So we embarked on fixing this derelict building up. Chip is a contractor and carpenter so he has done all the work-and there was a ton of it!
We are now almost finished and would like to share some pics!
Well, after a busy holiday season, it was about time for a little family vaycay. We needed to recharge our vitamin D, relax, and get back on granite.

So I'm not gonna lie, my first winter in the Pacific Northwest was a little rough. I had a kinda hard time dealing with the joy sucking (as I liked to call them) clouds. But, I must say I feel like something has shifted a little in me now. I think I might be starting to like the grey. Don't want to speak to soon...the cloudy, rainy weather has only just begun. But, I feel like the weather is really conducive to making art and I must say that if you don't mind getting a little wet, the lush, fern laden forests are spectacular this time of year. I went to Larch Mountain this morning. It's about 45 mins outside of the city and it was just incredible. Small brooks everywhere with ferns and mushrooms galore all under towering conifers.
