Art Work Put Aside to Build Another Gazebo
As if we didn't have enough to do, Manuela and I took time away from the studio to put up yet another gazebo. We had had an old gazebo that had been on the property but had become a little rickety, so we had the top torn down and we kept the base. I re-levelled the deck/base, and then, Manuela and I began to put up the wooden uprights. We had bought the octagonal gazebo as a kit and so the assembly would follow the process that we had used to put up the other two in our backyard.
As Manuela and I are over 70 years of age, we took our time and paced ourselves to get the job done. That meant the first day, Tuesday, June 22, I levelled the base and put up the verticals. Doesn't sound like much when you write it down like this but let me tell you, it takes time.
