Much activity in the Shed


There is much activity in the Shed. There is a new bay at the back, behind the peppercorn tree in this photo. You can just see where it starts if you look at the slightly newer roofing.


Inside the shed, there is chaos. But only in the front section, where George is working his usual miracles as he sorts. The new bay is the other side of the internal roller-door.


In the new section, the shelving is slowly going up, and our storage boxes are going into order. These contain objects only, as they are not archivally safe, so we are slowly moving paper-based items into better boxes, and hopefully soon the textiles as well. But these have been wonderful for sorting.

And the chairs! Aaah, the chairs. To have them in order like that is heaven! And will be even better when we hang labels off them with large numbers written on them. Next step - issue a letter to each bay, and stocktake the items on the lower levels.

Aaaah, Lenore, it is even more fun than that. We now have the HUGE front of the shed to properly set up displays. The harvester, the poison cart, the blacksmith's forge. All the outdoor and farming stuff, under cover. It is magic!
