Since the house is now in relatively good shape, we are starting to focus on the barn, which will be an artist space. The barn, the oasis and the dune were what sold the property for me. My friend Jeanne, who knows farms, said it's small for a cow barn, but it's a big project. At least it's not filled with trash anymore (the before photos are at the end of this gallery).
Anna does most of the writing. Ted does most of the photos. But sometimes we switch. We are repairing a distressed property in 29 Palms, California, and eventually hope to run an artist residency there.
