OK I know it has been a while since our last
talk. First there were the grand kids, then the 4th of July rodeo
and finally the many rooms to clean. So finally I have a moment to
tell what has been happening with the art studio, not to much.
Unfortunately the contractor had another job that had to be
finished first. He did manage to do a little work though ,as you
can see from the pictures. As you can see there are walls and
places for windows. Since these pictures we do have a few windows
in. The contractor will be working some this week and steady the
We are still hoping for an August finish date and be able to host
the first artist weekend the middle of August.
Keep watching and mark your calenders.

The Dickey House is at it again. Our next
renovation is under way. The last redo was the Carriage
House and it has been a great success. Many people have rented the
suite and loved the changes. So we are off and running on the next
This time is reinventing the Pavilion. Originally it was
going to house parties and weddings or group functions. But
due to water problems it never fulfilled its promise. So
re-invent! We are now working on closing it in and creating an
artist's workshop. First of course the water problem had to be
fixed. Larry and the workmen had to get creative on that, but we
think we have it solved. The work is slow; just finally getting
some walls. I will keep you posted as we go along.
Why keep renovating you ask? Have to keep the place new and fresh.
We are getting near the end of our days here, yes we are
looking to sell and move on but have to keep the home new
and fresh for the next owners
So keep watching for the first artist weekend and get you paints
ready to travel. Check our web-site to wash for the dates for
the first weekend.

OK it is finished, what a job. The room is beautiful if I say
myself. The color of the walls is great and the white bead board
really makes the room. The king bed that can turn into two
twins is the best part. We well be ready to put the room
back into service this weekend. Now on to the next room. Also as
you can see the hole on the side of my house is just about done, so
flowers will be growing. Watch for next room.
OK it has been several days and a lot has been happening. First the
room is completely painted. The carpenter has attached all the bead
board and trim. The head board for the bed is attached to the wall.
The carpenter is completing the corneas for the curtains and I have
purchased the blinds for the other windows. This weekend we should
be able to finish the room completely.So watch for the completed
pictures. Of course we could not do just one project so we have
started on the basement. Ad you can see form the pictures we now
have a fifteen foot long and six foot deep. The workmen are now
sealing the walls and fixing them. Hopefully this well fix the
water problems. I well send pictures as they
finish. Talk soon.
OK here we are several days into the redo. This weekend we were
able to paint the room. We chose a green/gray paint. Up against the
white woodwork it looks great. We put the new headboard in the
room and really like it. Thursday we will get the beadboard
for the bottom of the walls, and the beds. Hopefully by the weekend
the beadboard will be up. But what to do about the windows?
We would like to put some kind of shade or blind but the
front window is a problem because there is no room to put the
shades inside the windows. We will have to think hard on that. Talk
Well the destuction is finally over. All that horrible wallpaper is
gone. The walls are ready for the next step. Today I painted all
the upper trim with a fresh coat of high enamel paint. Tomorrow
will be the door frames amd windows. Then finally we can get to the
walls. Still alot to do we can only do one day at a time.
Pray for us.
OK it is Monday and I worked my hands to the bone. I managed to get
all around the tub and three quarters of the back wall
stripped. All that is left is the window wall. I will
send you pictures tomorrow to show how hard I have worked. Till
OK today we did not get anything done on the room,but I had a fun
day shopping for the linens. I was able to buy two blankets and two
mattress covers. Could not find any comforters so will have to go
catalog shopping. Monday is big day. We plan to spend
the whole day removing wallpaper. Hope it goes fast.
Will update with pictures tomorrow.
