So, I told you that Jay is building a Jesus Shed (a.k.a. creche).
It is massive and taking up a large portion of our basement. However, we are only a few weeks away from Advent so this has to be done very soon.
He has done a great job on it. In fact, he has already wired it with lights.
Hopefully this picture gives you some kind of perspective on its size. He has wired up a power supply and put warm white LEDs inside.
He even created two spotlights that can be pointed at the baby Jesus.
To help keep some of the snow out of it, he added “sides”.
This is by no means the vision that we had pictured. I was hoping to figure out a way to create a thatched roof, but unless I want to buy two tons of broom straw I have no way to do it. I mean, what am I going to do with 1.95 tons of broom straw after this project is finished? I don’t need that many brooms!
Just this much, though, is way better than our current creche. Once it’s completely together and in place with the figures installed it will look great.
