Dirty Lawn

Back in mid-April when the ground thawed I started digging a hole in my yard. Since then I’ve been working, and now I have something:


Behind those piles of construction waste is my new workshop. Okay, I’ll admit it, this took me longer than I thought it would. Turns out building a structure from scratch is hard. Or not really hard, but not easy, and pretty taxing mentally (see that pile of rocks? Yeah, that isn’t even all of them). Now, though, the exterior is done, and electrical is just about plumbed in–all that remains are the inside walls, ceiling, chimney, lights, receptacles, and workbenches. After that maybe my posts will be a little more on-point concerning, ahem, the actual purpose of Gray Banner Forge, which is forging.
