Observations (in the raw)
This week I have embarked on an adventure that is foreign to me. I am building steps up to the studio. The studio was completed a little over two years ago and the steps have been a nagging afterthought ever since. So, finally I decided the time was right to tackle this project.
I found plans online on how to construct flagstone steps. They looked straightforward and simple. And going about it really is, but the manual labor involved is a bit more than I might have wanted. I guess I'm up to it, because I am doing it. Although, there are more than a few sore muscles at the end of the day.
There is a sense of pride in a pursuit such as this. I am determined to do a professional job. We will see how it ends up. This is not a quick job.
