Springfest

Last Saturday, Rural Studio hosted its first-ever Springfest, a sit-down dinner to celebrate with our local friends and colleagues and also to celebrate the Rural Studio Farm. Scott Peacock, friend and chef, and a crew of dedicated friends and volunteers helped prepare our family-style dinner (that is, if your family had around 150 people). The dinner was excellent, as was the company. Thanks to all of those who helped prepare the event and also to those who attended.

After the drywall went up in about a week, we spent the next few days cleaning, priming, and painting. Once the walls and ceilings were thorough white, we cleaned the concrete and used a chemical etcher to get it ready for paint. We selected a high gloss, deep charcoal paint for the floors to allow them to recede visually and to hide the imperfections in the unfinished slab. 

After letting the paint dry, with the opening only about two weeks away, we put the pedal to the metal and began installing baseboards, fixtures, and cabinets, some of which had to be custom built according to standards of accessibility.

Pig Roast Day 1:

Newbern Library, Greensboro Boys & Girls Club

We had so many projects to see at Pig Roast this year that we kicked off our 20th Anniversary Pig Roast on Friday with the Newbern Library and the Greensboro Boys & Girls Club. Both teams have a bit of work left before they finish up, but the projects are looking great and we’re excited to see the progress they have made. After the teams presented their work, food from Pie Lab was provided while the kid’s band from Alabama Blues Project played some excellent music. Following the evening’s official events, Tim Hursley hosted a bonfire at in his Alabama Silo, which was quite a site to behold.

Pig Roast Day 2:

Lions Park

On day 2 of our ‘Super Pig’ Pig Roast, we spent much of the morning at Lions Park, where we celebrated the official openings of 3 projects: Lions Park Landscape, Lions Park Fitness and Lions Park Scouts. The Landscape team kicked off the Lions Park festivities with a tour through the park, which showed off the wholistic landscape strategy that they developed for the park (complete with rain gardens and tall grass fields). Next, we ventured over to the just-completed Fitness project, where the team had an unveiling of their shiny red fitness equipment, complete with demonstrations on how to properly use the machines. Lastly, we ventured over to the Scout Hut, which will provide a new home for the local Boy Scout and Cub Scout troops. We couldn’t be more proud of our newly completed Lions Park projects; they are all fantastic!

Wood Delivery & Newbern Snow day

Yesterday, we moved approximately 5,700 boards (5,730, to be exact) from 4 semi trucks and into storage here in Newbern. All of the wood was a very generous donation from the Westervelt Company; thank you very much! We should also thank Great Southern Wood, who donated the pressure treatment of a good part of the lumber for us. While we were moving the lumber, it started to snow in Newbern; a rare occurrence for us! Thank you very much to the Westervelt Company and Great Southern Wood for all of the support. That wood won’t be in storage very long; we’ll be in full-on build mode soon!
