Winter

We rang in the new year and weathered out a storm at the cabin. A battery problem made for a few dark nights but otherwise it was perfect. On  an afternoon walk we were reminded that although we built a home we are still the visitors here.

2014: The movie

My apologies to all  for the terrible blogging this last little while. To be honest, we were too busy having fun in our almost-finished/always-in-progress cabin. To try and play catch-up I put all of our pictures in one slideshow to summarize what was another amazing and productive year.

Step by step to the stairs!

The past two weekends have been all about getting ready to do some interior work. Now that all the siding has been done, it’ time to get in some of the elements of the interior. First step, the stairs!

Maddy preps the drywall after the very first insulation is put in.

Kevin contemplates the wall before getting started. The idea is to use the space under the stairs for storage.
First stairs go in

several stairs in
All the straight stairs are in! Now to install the curved stairs at the top and the  bottom.
Spring is sprouting up all over and to make the landscape even more lovely to look at our land partner Bill has been making some very cool rock sculptures.

 

 

 

 

Late October

The weather was perfect, the food was great and the card playing highly competive! A great weekend all around.

Terrible picture but great food: sitting down to a dinner of BBQ chicken, ribs and potato salad.
Curious fur-filled poop discovered on the upper road. Cougar?
What is this amazing monolith? Could it be the very first post in the new railing system?
