TTS #1, 2017

My first tabletop sculpture for 2017. Actually I finished one that I started in 2016, but I'm counting this as my first piece completely executed this year. Welded steel. 25" X 6" X 3"

New Barn/Studio

We have a barn. Still more to do next summer to finish it up. We will add more windows in both gable ends and on the front left side facing the pond. We also hope to add a ten foot "bump out" shed addition for a framing area and a small solar array with led lighting. In any case we made a lot of progress this summer. We started clearing trees and doing the site week the 4th of July weekend. The following week we began prepping for the concrete slab. Our heartfelt thanks to our son Kevin Abbott II and Ken Doria of Ken Doria Construction. Also Karl Hoyt for help with the site work.

New Studio

A long time coming. Twenty one this fall actually. That's how long Deb and I have dreamed of building a barn/studio at our place in the woods know by family and friends as Dragonwood http://thedragonwoodchronicles.blogspot.com/. We have our drawings and are ready to build a 18' X 28' foot barn. We have done the site work, cutting trees, clearing the land, bringing in fill and grading off for a level building site. This week we hope to get the foundation, a monolithic concrete slab finished. Then after a few days of curing and permiting we can begin the frame up. Should go fast once the foundation is complete. I will post photos of the progress.
