Our Museum/Library is located in a 40 foot container. Bill Shepherd installed all the wiring we will ever need. Next was the turn of our genius cabinet maker, Joe Cooper, to bring the abfab cabinets and desk top that he has constructed and install it.

ANY housewife in Mendocino County would be over the moon at the quality and workmanship of Joe’s cabinetry. Just look at the two pics below.
The helpers – Chuck Whitlock (with his back to me), Jim Williams and Santa Cruz Frank Smith helping install my soon to be work desk

The club can’t thank yo enough Joe.
These photos span a period of months largely because we can only access the interior walls of the barn when the CWR is not running. Here you can see the back wall with just sky:
The starting point
Painting of the hills in progress
The hills all painted as far as the post
The backdrop awaiting installation
The backside of the backdrop that will only be seen from the outside of the Barn

Progress but a ways to go – more painting and then installation of trees.
We (me?) have been storing a lot of all rhubarb in our new 40 foot container. That fateful day came when we had to clear the rhubarb out to make way for the highly anticipated interior being built by our cabinet maker cum genius Joe Cooper. I thought if I posed Basil Casabona at the far end of the space soon to be occupied by gleaming white cabinetry readers be able to see the total transformation.
