Weekend Getaway

Tim and I have to actually leave the house in order to stop working on the kiln project - or the many other things we are trying to wrap up before winter. So - we took the opportunity to celebrate our 5 year anniversary on this fabulous fall weekend. We went up to Portsmouth NH and then back to Northfield MA and Brattleboro VT. It felt great to get away for a few days.

Back at the Hilton Compound...we have so much to finish in these next few weeks. The ditch for the electrical conduit is ready for wiring and we need to purchase different wires for underground use - and different PVC for the expanse under the driveway. The Wiring Inspector for the Town of Greenfield stopped by last week to educate me on all the things I don't know about wiring. Which is a lot. I've also been learning about Metalbestos double walled pipe for the kiln chimney where the pipe needs to pass through the roof...but I need to do a little more research on that before I buy ($$$). The shed itself is nearly done and painted - just another afternoon to finish that up.

One more ditch for Tim to dig for the coming propane line - and we want to be sure to get that done before the ground is frozen.

Meanwhile, October and November are the busiest times in my studio - getting ready for several Holiday shows and must get to glazing!

Looking good! We are feeling the time crunch as well and hoping to get a lot done in the next week and a half before leaving for Thailand.

Happy Fall!
