Well, we're nearly halfway through April and it's time to start thinking about what we're going to add to the Hollow this year!
The wife has already started working on more pumpkins. I will show you some pics of those later. The idea is to have a display of some kind for all the wonderful pumpkins she makes.
We've also started working on an idea that has been evolving this last month. I Originally sat down to create a facade to add to the house that would sit between the house and the bridge. Problem was, I though that looked really odd. I don't know why, it just wasn't working for me.
So, I extended the facade over the bridge and instead of having a facade I created a covered bridge of sorts. This is funny because when I originally worked on the idea of the bridge I wanted to do something like the covered bridge from The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. That was proving too much for last year so I did a simple bridge.
Now, by extending the facade over the bridge I created something between a covered bridge and a facade. We're calling it the Sotoportego which from what I can tell is an Italian covered walkway connecting two streets, usually along a canal.
And here is a pic of the design...
OK. So, perhaps it's not a Sotoportego, but it does cover a bridge that connects the two sides of the cemetery and the word is cool so that is what we're going to call it.
Now that I have the design, I'm trying to figure out how I'm going to build this thing. That will be a whole other adventure.
I'll keep you posted!
