Squeals of Delight!

Remember the quatrefoil window? Our Amish friends remade it with Cypress wood. It’s quite a work of art on its own. But wait, there’s more. But just a tease… This is only a tease, and I’ll explain more later, but I couldn’t NOT share this with you! I’m so excited I do think I actually […]

Big Jobs in Small Places

It’s time to address the ceiling of the Church. Like any self-respecting church, it has a high ceiling made of wood and hard to reach. It’s old, stained, and has been the home of many a spider and fly over the years. So our  initial job is to prime it with Kilz. As its name […]

Drywall!

I’ve been in the habit of bolting out of school on fridays and driving north. I say goodbye to the Astronomy Club kids, hop in the car and drive two hours in the waning but magnificent burnt orange sunlight ’til I make my way to Grindstone Corners! I get to the church with some pent […]

Progress Isn’t Pretty

I’m going to be showing a lot of pictures of progress. Progress is not always pretty. But it is exciting, and the fact that these pictures show giant steps in the progress of White Church Gallery is extra-exciting, if such a state of being exists. Some things that were never meant to be seen by […]

Pardon Our Dust!

I spent a day solo moving all the furniture and tools into two aisles so that the walls were clear. I felt very empowered after the move.The place was a mess, as you see. Step […]

Summer plans

So what’s going on at the Church this season? After the heating/cooling system went in, we had to huddle down, replenish the coffers, and plan the next step. After much thought and prayer, it became clear that we need more…space! Yes, the church is big and beautiful, but when we take out the plaster, insulate […]

Shop with your Eyes, Buy with your Heart.

While we are waiting for time to replenish our coffers and our energy, we did a little window shopping. Bay City was our mall, and Antiques were our eye candy. Want! And also… Want badly! Loads of gorgeous tile. But where would it ever fit? What would we do with it? We pondered and had great […]

Christmas

It was a lovely Christmas! A drywall gun! This gift, along with an extremely generous gift card for the actual drywall, comes after a difficult decision to remove the plaster so we can insulate and replace with drywall. No one wants to see the old plaster go, but the walls need insulation. The Geothermal can’t […]

Scraping, Painting.

We’ve started painting the outside of the Church. The first investment was a “Paint Eater.” Scrape, then paint. Scrape some more, then paint some more. Two coats of Sikkens white does the trick. You can hear the sucking sound as the old wood takes it in. Upward! Pretty! Now the north face… Scrape, paint, scrape, […]
