This blog documents stories, perspectives, and reflections of our adventures at Rice Lake at our boat access only island property with our newest little cottager. Our goal is to build a 800-900 square foot, open concept cabin for $50 000 and have this complete in the next 5 years. The blog details our DIY ideas and pre-construction planning.

Show and Tell- A short film on the most Canadian of places, an outdoor skate rink
The ice rink I stumbled upon on Rice Lake, on the way up to the property
Last night, I watched a screening of Jeff Bird's documentary RINK (http://jeffbird.com/rink.html) performed with live music to accompany. The documentary, filmed in Guelph, ON, captures the life and death of the most Canadian of places, an outdoor neighbourhood skating rink, made and cared for by a man named Udo. Beautiful images and a wonderful depiction of a gathering place and how communities and people of all ages can come together, even on the coldest of days! I had to share this short film!
