The muddy middle
For the last many weeks, the bones of our new home have been coming together. Here are four different pictures and the dates they were taken.
Most times we have visited SEED Homes in southeast Calgary, we have been allowed to tour the construction zone to get a sense of space and a firsthand view of the progress. The muddy middle included schematic drawings on work tables, tools scattered about and framed out rooms where bathrooms and bedrooms will eventually be. That all started to change in recent days as finishing details like light switches and duplex plugs started to appear.
As with home construction, painting often has a muddy middle. The early stages of most paintings can look like a big hot mess. However, much like a home builder, an artist knows that the first few layers are essential to getting to the beautiful end result.
