Finishing the ‘basement’ floor
Lynn finishes the careful work to set the true-to-the-original hexagonal tiles on the first deck.
Barry pours the new slab to replace the old.
July has been a busy month on Station.
Inside Graves Light, on the first floor about 40 feet up, which we call the “basement,” Barry from CCI pours a new slab floor and Lynn lays down the same period-correct hexagonal tiles to finish the job.
Mike and other lads from CCI have staged the oil house
, removed the rotted roof, and are fortifying the place to last another 100 years.
Meanwhile, the new solar panels
on our hopefully storm-proof new shed
are generating plenty of power to run all systems.
No need for the fuel-burning electric generators any more.
