Bass Lake School

The rebirth of a country school

The Countdown Begins

Like every good schoolhouse, we now have a chalkboard to keep track of our lessons.  Or in our case, our assignment list.

These are the ‘we should get these things done before winter’ assignments.  I really, REALLY want to get all these done before winter.  The nice part is, if we don’t, there is always next year – which gives us more time and more chance to save up.  Anyone out there want to come over for a bell tower raising? (OK, well, more specifically it will involve standing on tall ladders with the opportunity to install windows 20 ft in the air and dodge the stray remaining bat, but doesn’t bell tower raising sound fun?)

That being said – we are suddenly charging full speed ahead.  Despite how desperate the windows-left-to-do situation looks on the chalkboard, we are halfway done with the east side.  They are looking great!  

 

 

 

 

Some of the sills are more challenging than others.  We had to employ gravity as our friend on this one to get it to come out of it’s shell.   Perhaps not a traditional or accepted way, but it came out.  (I won’t talk about the liberal use of WD-40 and Pam cooking spray – that’s a topic for another day in construction.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Meanwhile outside, we created a firepit bouquet (because I was too lazy to cut them up first),and Grace spruced up the sign – a much needed improvement!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Next Time:  Stay tuned for the re-opening of the bell tower.  What’s up there?  What will come down?  How bad will it smell…. till next time!
