Okay... An update for those who read my journal.

I did buy the house and found the expected damage.  Back in December, we found damage we were not expecting.  There was a wall that basically had nothing supporting it.  The sill plate, band, bottom plate, studs and floor joists did not exist.

What held things up was the ceiling joists and the rafters and that was barely. 

Good news is that wall has been rebuilt, the floor joists have been doubled that were missing the ends and extra joists were added.  Bridging blocks have been added between the joists and the new subfloor has been added.  Yay! (Insert much bouncing here.)

With this much progress happening it's a total bummer when we find out the bathroom is about to fall in taking the toilet with it and we may have the tub falling into the crawlspace because no one bothered to do the jobs they were paid to do.  There is also another exterior wall with a lot of rot...  *le sigh*

I'm going to fix my attention on that room with the new subflooring.  I'm a lot further than I was back in the summer of 2014.

I'm making an appeal to my watchers.  I have originals, prints, art cards, hooks, needle felted items, and there is always the commissioning option.

I need money to buy the wood, roof felt, nails, and other supplies needed to keep this project going.  Right now, it's all coming out of our pockets and that's not a problem, but the more material we can get to this little house, the more we can get done and the faster it becomes my gallery, studio, workshop, and office (with room to have guests visit). 

Times are tight for everyone.  I get that.  All I want to do is get art sold so I can buy enough building material to finish each room.

If you're inclined to help, note me.  We can discuss the details of any sales or commissions you might be inclined to request.

Now I'm going to go and see if I can put pencil to paper and come up with something cool.
