[Glaslyn] [Steppes] Radical Idea

The SCA cannot own property as far as I know.  I'm not certain whether a
building on someone else's land is 'property' or not.

Sueko and I are building a closet in her room - maybe we could help some,
too, if we could just learn to drive nails straight! <evil grin>

I would be willing to spend some of my weekend time on this. If I can tile a

bathroom I can help on construction of a building. The real kicker would be 
money for building material.....I'm not sure how SCA financial bylaws look 
at something like this.
