Sunday Share : Celebrating
This past week I participated in a chat room on Clubhouse about my Offgrid solar powered home and art studio in the mountains of southern Colorado. The talk was about how to build a sustainable environment, reuse recycle repurpose, challenges and successes about Offgrid construction, the joys and inspirational opportunities living in Nature, and possible ways to earn passive income. We had a great time! All very fun and informative tidbits to share with friends who are interested in developing a relationship with Nature and Offgrid construction opportunities.
During the discussion the topic of challenges and successes arose. 🔥🔥🔥🔥We spoke about many interesting things including: powering my studio using a forklift battery; to water sources and well digging; to where to source construction materials; to the ebb and flow of living Rural surrounded by Nature. ⭐️⭐️⭐️Fantastic news ⭐️⭐️⭐️
I am so excited to share a tidbit with you all about the glass we tracked down and reused. It took us over 4 years to find all the glass for the grand windows in my studio!
✅. I am so thrilled to share the great news✅
💥💥💥 Finally the last piece of glass has been secured and installed...💥💥💥 My husband located it in a glass warehouse in Denver. A 3 hour drive north. It is a sheet of 3/4” glass from a sliding glass door taken out of a hotel renovation. He had to take apart the door to retrieve the sheet. Finding The correct size was a real challenge. In the 3 skylights and 9 windows We reused glass from French doors and slider doors. We have secured the glass from 5 different construction sites or glass warehouses throughout Colorado. The challenge- The standard size of a slider door changed during the 80s to a small dimension. We have been hunting for the larger pre-80s glass. 💥💥💥💥Celebrate with me. We found it! The final sheet has been found! And it is installed! Which means that the interior construction for all the large windows is done! 💯💯💯💯 enjoy the installation images. I am baking a chocolate cake today to celebrate 🎉
Shu was the god of the Air, Wind, and Skies. The name Shu meant emptiness or he who rises up. The Greeks associated Shu With the Greek titan, Atlas, as both gods were assigned the duty of holding up the skies. Shu was predominately associated with fog, clouds, and the wind. According to some accounts, Shu plays a significant role in the creation of light and dark, good and evil. He separated Nut (sky goddess) and Geb (earth god), to formulate boundaries between the sky and earth. Without this division, physical life and growth wouldn’t have been possible on planet earth. Through this demarcation, a border was also established between the bright realm of living, and the dark world of the dead. As an illuminator of darkness, and a God of light, Shu Was closely associated with the sun God, Ra.
There is always something interesting, amusing, educational, or beautiful to ponder and explore.
