Red Echo

March 14, 2007

I cut out of work a little early today and went up to Edmonds with Adam to retrieve my old Rover. It’ll sit over at Heden until I get a chance to sell it. Then we dug Adam’s tools out of the Heden garage, packed them into the new Rover, and drove down to the shop. An hour of poking around with a tape measure gave us a plan, which we refined over beer across the street at Jules Maes. For starters, we’re going to build a 160-square-foot storage loft, possibly with a stairway. Once storage needs are settled, we’ll set up workspaces using pegboard, 2x4s, and folding tables.

All this will have to wait for a couple of weeks, however; I’m leaving on Friday for a week and a half in Whistler. Barry B. rented a cabin up there for three weekends, and a couple dozen of us will be rotating through for various lengths of time. Ski during the day, relax with friends at night – I can’t wait! It won’t exactly be a vacation, though; I’m going to bring my laptop, so I can work during days when the snow isn’t great or I’m too tired to ski.

New shop, new car, lots of travel, and in a couple of weeks I’ll be moving; life is exciting right now.


  1. Didn’t know you are moving! Where to?

  2. I’m moving in with Mez, Alexis, and Lesley, over at Heden (a great big house near the Arboretum). There’s a big kitchen, great big hot tub, a beautiful view of the Japanese Garden… and lots of my friends visiting all the time. It should be fun.
