What to do with a dead canoe.

Our building is perfect for us, but the lot is ugly.   We’re still climbing out of a recession start up; I can’t justify money spent on aesthetics, but can’t stand to see another spring pass without doing so.

Here you see a worn out Grumman canoe we’re using as a sign.  I did the design in Google SketchUp, and today Nathan and I built it, that’s him watching Lily and Christina canoeing our ugly asphalt lot.

The other photos show Lily, Christina and our Fulbright Scholar Jean-Rene helping out.  We’re mocking up the sign; it’ll ultimately sit out front, as you see in the last photo.   And we’re ripping out all the non-native plants (another story.)  What do you think?
