We have done a lot of improvements around our old Homestead; but all of them are for our Old Folks at home comfort in our latter years, but the newly redesigned "Rigger Hut" is for me to ply my craft in. That and as a Christ-in Chaplain, have folks come to me to visit or council in.
The new hut is really the old one dismantled, and rebuilt fully insulated, and now with built in features that are as custom for me as the custom sewing work I do for others.
The new hut is sage green color metal Quonset Hut and is looking real good and now set back on the lot behind our home which is a similar color siding and trim.
This time around, the hut will be a sowing / sewing only building and by that I mean there will be no merchandise in it as in times past.
The new address as far as we are concerned is now 1808 E. Jackson St. Muncie, iN. 47305-2745 and our home phone of 765-747-1934 will be our Sowing / sewing contact number. I have not decided yet to keep my mobil phone line at this time, but it would be 765-585-0776 if we do.
I am planning to keep the same hours for the near time line: Tuesdays through Saturdays 10:30 - 5:30 and we have moved to a cash and carry basis; as we have gotten rid of our card processing equipment, and services. We may add a Cashless ATM at some time in the future but it is not a done deal yet.
We will continue to colocate together near the Army Navy Surplus of Muncie which is in the two Quonset Huts in line on the back of 1810 East Jackson St.
The parking lot has been expanded and cleaned up we are preparing to put in a handicap ramp to the Rigger Hut, and steps and floating deck to the Army Navy Surplus.
We also took down my Daughters Home that was no longer fit for human habitation at 1804 E. Jackson St. which is next to ours and increased the size of the existing driveway from one lane to two lane so it is easier and safer to enter and exit our operations area.
We also with our neighbors permission, put in a gravel walk path across the front of their yard at the roadside to enable folks who visit or shop the Main Street flea market to walk over or vise versa. And we are continuing to do driveway improvements to the east side of our home to help make finding us easer and safer for those approaching from the east.
Oh yes a lot of improvements have been made from existing materials and the old homestead is really looking great compared to the many years we actually thought of going out and tearing it down.
So we are hoping you will take the time to come visit us and maybe consider us for your next sewing project. I and the wife are healing well after my cancer surgery and her double bypass surgery and God is not done with us yet. So when you are of a mind to come visit? or have work done? Please do. And thank you for visiting our blog and reading it and maybe even leaving a comment or post.
God Bless and Keep you and Yours.
