On a lovely evening this summer, we were enjoying some wine and conversation with several friends in our studio garden, all socially distanced of course, when a loud crashing sound ejected us from our chairs. We all raced to the streets in different directions looking for a huge automobile accident. None could be found so we continued our wine and fellowship. When we returned to the inside of the studio we saw a section of the ceiling about 3 x 6 feet had fallen. Nothing was damaged. The cat continues to tell me to this day, “the sky is falling”. Truly a 120-year old build which was neglected for quite a while will have problems like this from time to time. We were pleased that no one was hurt.
Our friend Mike Sims, a master plasterer, came to the rescue. He has worked in our studio before. He tested all areas of the ceiling for loose plaster and removed and repaired all. Alan Cottrill lent us his Geni Lift and Mike Sims plastered and I painted. Good as new.
Thanks Mike and Alan!
