Unless it rains enough in the next wave, all this snow is not going to melt before the next snow arrives with it. The temperatures don't look promising. We are now having an extended period of winter, as we should in January. There was zero melting today. Everything has turned to ice.
With a suggested high of only 30 today accompanied by stiff winds I planned on staying put in the cozy cabin. I also planned ahead with plan C for the library shelving in the mini-loft. The minion called and suggested building shelves that faced out towards the living space instead of facing in to the center of the loft. Don't ask me why that thought didn't enter my own head.
A shelf shape was born.
I do believe this accomplishes my desire for a more open look. Seeing the books will even say "library".
I bought two boards so I built another. I can make one of these shelves with a ten foot board. Now I need to make two more. For two of them at least I will add another shelf in the rectangular part. I'll need an extra board for that.
There is enough depth that I could fit three shelves on each side if I want. That option becomes more doable if I can find some really low profile wheels that can be put on the bottom for locomotion. They need to be sanded and stained of course. That process can wait for another day.
The minion had a brilliant and attractive solution for my shelving dilemma.
If the snow's not going to melt, I won't be able to prep ground for my poppy seeds anytime soon. That means I can finish up my shelving project. My special order bifold doors for the hanging clothes closet should be here soon too.
It's a good thing I have a long list of winter projects. Multiple plans always get worked through and I am forever having to adjust processes around the weathers. I haven't gotten stuck with nothing to do very often
