I made it! For my last project, I wanted to materialize an idea that has been in my head for a few months. Building houses and fishing shacks, perched on of rocks, brought back from my many walks, on the beaches of Nova Scotia.
The first version did not live up to the image I had of it… After a few hours, I decided to put on hold the construction. When I woke up the next morning, I thought of using a box of wood pieces that my father gave me a few years ago. Until then, the box had remained in a cupboard. I would be using the reclaim wood from the lobster cage, for the walls, but I had just found the solution, to add a few details to my built (roof, piles, etc…).
I couldn’t have imagined a more perfect ending as incorporating my father’s wood into this creative project. It is by watching my dad, build and create all sorts of projects , that I learned to be interested and want to build a world of my own!
Here’s how, in the last hours spent building my tiny shack, I was filled with gratitude and with the certainty that he was there, watching me!
Et voilà !
