Can you believe this is a bulkhead to a basement? I love its tiny scale, cheery red door, and moss covered shingles. Feels like it's from a fairy tale.
Not only does it look nice, but it's sustainable; no repaving or maintenance. And it's better for the environment; less runoff into a near by stream.
Speaking of the stream, it's a beautiful meandering backdrop to the springtime blooms and sculptural solar clock...
At my parent's house... I took a peak at the new laundry room my dad has been laboring over. I was quite impressed with his sheetrocking abilities. Here he inset a utilitarian 2 x 4 fluorescent fixture into a sheetrock soffit. Given the great light quality, I'd swear it was a skylight... if it weren't in the basement!
Here you can see how the small molding holds in the fixture and allows the panel to be popped out to replace the bulbs.
We took a trip to Strasburg, PA in Lancaster County to check out the railroad museum. I hadn't been there since I was a little kid so I wasn't sure what to expect. Wow, I underestimated the grand nature of these majestic machines.
And I was amazed by my 22 month old's excitement! He was in train heaven. Here's what I like to call the 'train dance'...
Did you just have a spring break too? Where did you go and what did you do? Please, do tell!
