Day 1342, more forgotten.

Day 1342.jpg

A roof

the least appreciated

of what our ancestor

invented

~

more forgotten

then what came

from under its protection

~

culture

politics

~

maybe

looking at the stars

is not that bad

Day 1298, exhaust.

Day 1298.jpg

These massive structures

all around

us

standing on

ancient

bedrock

~

they are dead

till we breath

life

in it

~

this life

at the end

poisons

us

in this confined

interior

Day 1098, reflections.

Day 1098-1.jpg

From afar

you look bright, in red

I come closer

to greet

I can’t see

inside

from up here

through reflections

I see

your former

when we do

meet

Restoration of Brottsjø 7

This week we removed the “egnerhus”. There are parts from different periods, from the 1960 to the ’90. Under the glass fiber roof cover, probably from the 70’s we found small nails indicating that there was originally a canvas cover on the wooden roof. The sink and poorly made table are from the 90’s and have to go. When Brottsjø was used for fishing there was also a second stove standing in the “egnerhus” used for cooking and drying cloth, you can still see the round hole.

This week we started taking away the old “skandekk”, that is the construction at the side of the deck that prevents water that’s coming from the deck to leak in-between the ribs and so in parts of the boat that you can’t inspect and thus potentially can cause serious damage. Another important function of the “skandekk” is preventing the deck to get wider and wider, the way we make these decks water tight is by forcing hemp into the different seams between the planks, by doing this you create enormous forces sideways and the ” skandekk” stops these. At this picture you see how I check if the deck is straight or slightly curved. The “randplank” between the straight deck and the curved “skandekk” gets special attention because of its shape.
