When we arrived at Tiny House Ontario yesterday it was grey and cold. Too with all the leaves now on the ground the trees reach up to the sky silently. It felt very barren certainly when compared to the fall with all its deep colours and noisy fluttering. It is the first time back after the very rushed cloth porch roof job so I had worried when Hurricane Sandy came. I thought that we would find a lot of fallen trees and debris blown away because my building supply pile was not put away very well.
There were no trees uprooted; not even the huge Tim Burton tree, Clyde, was harmed at my place by Sandy. But, there was a huge mess around the East side of THO. Today the weather was absolutely gorgeous so Hj and I worked out there getting tidied up. He brought in a number of wheel barrel loads of gravel and I levelled it out. Then I moved the barrels, and storage boxes into the corner, together we relocated left over building supplies. It looks much tidier, but still it looks like like a lot of stuff against THO!
I really dislike the look of the tarp too, on the cloth porch – It is ugly and tacky. Still, it is entirely practical! It is open enough to cook with the BBQ there but dry as a bone!
I would like to be able to tuck things away a lot more unseen at THO but sadly, I don’t think a shed is in the cards for next year either. Perhaps I will find a use for all of my left over materials next spring so I won’t need a pile?
