I think I may have posted somewhere that with any luck, this spring we would be able to build a post frame building to house a 3 car garage plus my studio. Well, today my dreams came a lot closer to coming true. We got the settlement for my husband's disability claim. He has 35+ year history of debilitating headaches and we have been trying to get him on disability since his job of 31 years moved south to Mexico and left him unemployed. We went through the apply (denied), appeal (denied), requested a hearing (wait 28 months), then the judge approved him. Now with the meager sum that he will be getting each month, at least I wouldn't be the sole bread-winner any more. This comes at a very good time since I work in the automotive industry and I think everyone knows what is going on there.
As for the picture, this will be the view from the window in the office/reception area of my studio. I plan on "stealing" about 15 feet on the east end of the building for a studio, changing room, and office/reception area. The studio area will be approximately 20' deep x 12' wide with 12' high ceilings. Once we start construction, it will be easy to find a picture to post and you will see the day to day progress. Oh, when I said we would be building it, I really meant it, my husband and I do virtually 100% of the actual construction on anything we build, but I'm done floating concrete. I'm getting way too old to do a 48 x 32 foot slab of concrete.
The picture is 3 shots stitched together. They were shot hand-held at ISO 100, f22, and 1/8 second. I used a program that came with my Canon P&S called Photo Stitch to join them. Click this link for a larger view if you like.
