In May 2011, after four years of life on McNutt's Island, we moved to Montreal. This blog remains, though, as a (sort of) daily record of our time on the island, and a winding path for anyone who would like to meander about among its magical places. For additional perspectives and insights I recommend Greg's book, Island Year: Finding Nova Scotia (2010), and my Bowl of Light (2012). I'll continue to post once in a while. If you do want to read this blog, one option would be to begin at the beginning of it (which is, as we all know, in blog-world, at the end), and read forward, concluding with the most recent entry. It's a journal, really, so it does makes more sense if you read it that way. But, you know, read it any way you like.

Building the greenhouse

The greenhouse project is moving right along. I particularly love the steep angle of the roof.
A roof window on each side is hinged for venting. Greg brought the wrought iron hinges with him when we moved here. They were left over from a house restoration project he did in Delaware.
The walls are recycled tongue and groove lumber.
So far the greenhouse has cost nine dollars for four new panes of glass, and about seventeen dollars for half a box of those nails that a power hammer uses. Labour being free.
