The most fun part of all this project is the part where I clean up and yet leave authentic. My goal is to make it not just look like its always been this way, but feels like its been this way. The Railway is a key part of the towns texture. It’s there, and yet, not there. If that makes sense.
Since its on the water not on Main Street like all the fancy houses, part of the dance here is to keep it that way. Yet fit into place. Make sense?
Well, my feeling is to do this like an artist. Not a contractor. Preserving, not restoring, or rebuilding. To let the history speak in its true self. I know, I know, it’s rather zen like. But it’s why I am doing this.
The Zipper insanity on a building scale. Is it achievable? I am gonna try like hell. Some of the larger challenges are the stuff thats actually more modern. Getting the electrical up to current standards, safety, and well, more safety. Yet doing it in a way that keeps the ….electricity of the place going!
Of course I want to put this sign up for all the neighbors.. Shhhhh, they dont read Woody Boater. Imagine the horror! HA,
STAY TUNED, there is a ton more. Insulation, the parts room, library, and a new cool project for the town given with LOVE!
