Been a while since we’ve done a workshop update. The roof has been keeping us in strawberries and basil all summer, and is starting to deliver on other herbs.

Bought a 1947 cottage in southwest Petaluma (about 45 minutes north of San Francisco) in January of 2008, our projects started by ripping out the carpets to reveal the gorgeous white oak floors. We never want to move again, so we're slowly turning this place into the home we want to spend the rest of our lives in.
We'll be building our own kitchen cabinets, eventually hope to build our own doors, make doing the place up with beautiful wooden fixtures our hobby.
I'm also slightly active over at LumberJocks, along with my own extensive web presence.
