Talk about a busy month! Everyone is working hard to meet our construction deadline, but it hasn’t been easy or without stress. Actually, we’ve already had to extend our deadline by 15 days. That being said, the cabin is looking extra BEAUTIFUL with much of the interior work done.
To tell you the truth, I’m quite relieved and happy to see that our interior design choices are coming together the way we hoped. There are soooooooo many small choices you’d probably never think of in the beginning when designing a home from the ground up … or at least we never thought of them. We’ve made thousands of big and little choices throughout the process that sometimes make us wonder if it’s all going to come together okay.
Kit has graciously allowed me to make most of the interior design choices, but he made two really big decisions that were key to the entire project when it came to the overall look of the cabin. The first choice he made was the type of logs the cabin would be made out of — Western Red Cedar. They are truly the most beautiful logs I’ve ever seen in my life! Second, he was adamant about putting a lot of rock on the exterior and interior of the cabin. He’s always loved castles and selected a rock that spoke to that. I couldn’t be happier with both of his choices! My husband is a genius, but don’t tell him I said that. His head is big enough as it is 😉
This weekend the guys were working on all of the interior railing for the stairs and hanging light fixtures. Our general contractor sent us this photo of the loft railing.
Kit also made some progress on the awesome (and dare I say REALLY F’ING HEAVY) kitchen table he’s making. He’s building it out of two live-edge pieces of pine with river rock as the center. There’s even a gold spinner hiding in the river for someone to spot 🙂 He hasn’t finished all of the epoxy pouring yet, but has two layers done, and it’s looking incredible.
Well, that’s all for now. Thank you for taking the time to read our blog. Cheers!
