I can’t remember a winter quite so warm and dry. As I write this blog, it’s 70 degrees outside! I took my dog, Kuba, for a walk this afternoon in a t-shirt! A t-shirt in early January, can you believe that?!
As a farmer’s daughter, I’m never too excited about long dry spells. However, in this case, it’s been nice for making progress on the cabin.
Our windows and doors haven’t been delivered yet, but we’re getting close! Everyone took some (much needed) time off for the holidays, and now we’re just getting back into the swing of things.
One of the more notable things we’ve started since our last blog is the decking. Can’t wait to see what it looks like finished! Here are a few pictures of the progress.
I also had the pleasure of beginning to design the main floor bathroom. We decided to convert Kit’s old wine barrel into a vanity and a stock tank into a bathtub.
We also met with a company to design the kitchen cabinets, which was a lot of fun! Some people have wrinkled their nose at me when I tell them I selected green cabinets, but I think it will break up all the wood nicely. With wood walls and floors, I was reluctant to select wood stained cabinetry, too. Here’s a picture of the concept I was trying to match.
The master bathroom tub was delivered, too! I can’t wait to soak in it.
The septic system is also done. Now our poop has a place to go LOL!
Lastly, I was able to make a little progress on the wood carving for one of the nightstands Kit’s making. He’s made a bunch of progress with the furniture, but we’ve neglected to take pictures. I’ll post more soon!
As always, thank you for following us! We love sharing our experience with everyone. Blessings!
