2014! and Love News

This is a bit of a love letter to 2014. It was a busy year! But a lovely one. And only good things to come in 2015. The Church will be open by June. How do we know? How could we possibly be open in 5! Five! 5! months? With a punch list a country […]

A Few Additions…

It’s the busy season at the Church. Summer was right for hanging out at the Ice Cream Store, shooting the breeze and eating ice cream. But Fall hath come, and worker bees are swarming the church ready to make some sweet, sweet honey. Sweet and fresh as the wild honey the bee gathers on the […]

It Ain’t Easy!

So what’s been going on this week? Let me show you, and you can guess… Darn, you guessed it! The Church is being wired. Now that the plaster and lathe is gone, we can wire the walls for electricity before we add insulation and close her up with drywall. Outlets under the windows and in […]

Uncovering the Window

For as many years as can be remembered by the living, there has been a red circle with a white cross in the front of the Church. Here’s the story of the uncovering of the Quatrefoil window. First light was quite exciting! I couldn’t take pictures of bringing the window down since I was holding […]

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 […]

Ah aHHHH

That’s supposed to be angels singing. It’s the sound we hear (and usually make) when we look up and gaze at the new arch. Ron Picard Builders has done it again. Remember before? Where’s the beautiful window above the door? And what will we do with that long, short window to the right? How about […]

Fore and Aft

This project is all about Before and After. Progress. Taking a decrepit, aging old church, a church that no one has ¬†much cared about for decades, and stopping the decay. Restoring what was, and possibly making it even better. For us, one of the most exciting things to see was the restoration of the bell […]

The Cross

Not much big lifting went on in the Church this weekend. But we did some fine inspection of various beloved features, including what lies behind the cross. And I don’t mean the incredible and humbling story of Jesus being crucified for our sins. I mean the quatrefoil with intact glass, for the most part. Not […]

Snow!

We were all set for the wood stove install, but snowy weather put the kibosh on it. So we spent the time nesting, enjoying the feel of this wonderful place. One thing we wanted to know: what’s the date on the church bell? Unfortunately, only a contortionist could get up there, so the date of […]

Arches!

I wonder what’s going on at the Church? Outside, it looks warm and cozy, lit and lively. Inside, there’s much work being done. The arches have been cut. Rumor has it that it was difficult and messy work. So as the smoke clears (really plaster dust and lathe mist) we have a pair of arches. […]
