The MERA Schoolhouse hosts an art exhibit every month, this month the Schoolhouse Weavers are exhibiting their craft.
As the title says, weaving has been going on at the schoolhouse for 20 years, since its inception in 1998. While weavers have come and gone, the tradition continues.
There are many items on display, many of which are for sale. With Mother’s Day quickly approaching next month, why not get a unique one-of-a-kind gift for mom. And be sure to bring your appetite, as the Steady Way Community Cafe serves up delicious lunches, baked goods and coffee.

While taking these pictures today, I got to meet this adorable kid:
I can’t believe I haven’t blogged about house construction since November!
While construction did continue throughout the winter, I guess most of the stuff wasn’t “blog” or “picture” worthy (if this was a more technical blog maybe it would be). Insulation, vapour barrier, plumbing, electrical and ducting don’t create the same excitement as say…….SIDING!
Now the house is taking on the look of a home.
South and West Facing
The North and East walls have yet to be finished.
We ended up going with a vinyl board and batten style of siding. Our original thought was to have the house sided with stained or painted cedar boards and battens. However, that would have required more work and maintenance in the long term, something neither one of us was prepared to deal with.
Drywall is right around the corner, stay tuned.
