You must label your foam

before you start cutting.

Here are pictures of the (almost) complete shipment of foam for the chapel build.  We have labeled all the pieces and cut them to length this weekend.  The tools from Hot Wire Foam Factory arrive later this week and we can start making the more complicated cuts.








What an adventure this is going to be.  Keep posted for updates as we build.

Now we really do have to build

the chapel.

The abbey is loaded in the truck and on its way to Oklahoma City.







Took us several hours to play this epic game of trailer abbey parts Tetris.  But we got it to fit in 14 feet of the truck (he has to pay to ship by the foot, we originally thought 17 feet, but we just that good.)

It is very weird to think that that Abbey will never be up in our yard again.  But the new owner is over the moon to have it, so that makes it bittersweet.

Even Hal, short for Halloween Cat, looks sad.  I made my cat sad, that makes me a bad human.

Don't worry Hal, we have a new prop for you to climb on and scratch in a few months.

Speaking of bones

I also sighted this guy in my garden take-over.  Apparently, the original Bucky skeleton has a much better resistance to our Pacific Northwest weather, he has been there for 8 years now.






Remember this guy from years ago.  He is still in the garden, and he is going to get some plantings to keep him company in a few days.
