I spent last summer immersed in the messy business of rehabbing, ripping up carpet, painting, sanding, sewing, building shelves, planting, pruning, repurposing. I had a two-year-old on my hip 24/7 and two boys running around like feral animals, but I somehow managed to tackle a project a day. Often, it was as simple as painting an old medicine cabinet; another time, I spent an entire week hand-sanding a thick, glossy lacquer off antique oak twin beds I found on craigslist for $40. It wasn’t always creative work, but it was all-consuming and deeply gratifying. I’m proud of how much we were able to accomplish in one summer.

This year, the plan is to apply that energy to the outside — an outdoor oven; more gardens; pear, quince and fig trees. Collecting, sketching, photographing wildflowers as they change every week; planting, growing and documenting a medicinal garden; building stuff with branches we gather in the woods. A handful of co-conspirators have signed on to spend anywhere from a couple days to a week in the old granary-turned-guesthouse to help with creative projects, like making an illustrated botanical map of the grounds.

It’s a forever work-in-progress, and that’s the intention, but for now, it’s also ready to accept guests. If you’re interested in booking the entire farmhouse,you can book via Airbnb, or contact me directly. For information on granary residencies in July or August, email me at [email protected] Collaboration opportunities for gardeners, weavers, woodworkers, knitters, bakers, botanical artists. You have to like kids; they’ll want to know what you’re up to.

  2. Window fitters in bifold doors ilford should be equipped
    with all the necessary tools and safety equipment.
    If possible, let the fitter bring a “fitter’s mate” along to help
    with heavy lifting. Make sure to include this in the estimate you receive.

  4. Due to social problems and programs that promote sexual relations between women and men, natural young sex toys have
    become a hot subject. They also function as a companion for a
    single or lonely man during times of intense sensuality.

  7. Do you require an upgrade to a Double Glazing Replacement Window-glazed window?
    You should first evaluate your windows to determine if they’re still in good condition. Are the windows difficult to open?
    Are the panes damaged or cracked?
