Something about September that gets me in the serious mood to build. The sun’s not so strong, the air’s crisp, and probably there’s an instinctual feeling about getting a shelter built before the winter. I guess I’m not the only one, as these folks are raising the cab-over bedroom roof on their old motorhome. The woman told me she was tired of banging her head when she got up in the morning. It seems there’s a little underground remodeling business among homeless folk: her “builder” had arrived via bicycle. Looks like he knows what he’s doing too.
Well, I’m at it too, and we finally broke ground on a little house I’m going build in the lot behind my house.
We excavated a couple of weeks ago, and as I write this, I can hear the foundation guys banging on their forms, getting ready for the pour in an hour or so. I’ve lined up a knowledgeable carpenter to take the lead, but I’m going to be down there as much as I can too. I’ll try to keep the CC momentum going at full tilt. Multitasking! something I’m finally getting a bit better at.
So if you’ve ever thought about being a CC Contributor, this is the perfect time to build your first Curbside Classic. Send Submissions (text and pictures) to me via the Contact form. Somehow, I don’t see an extended trip in the Chinook on the horizon this fall.
