Cabin in the Woods

My husband and I spent the week working on the new cabin. Much to my delight the place is looking more like a small log house than a "hunting camp". DH is doing a fantastic job on it and already has bigger plans in the works. What was originally a super small bedroom with room for just a bunk bed and small dresser (for hunters or grandkids) is now roughed in for a bathroom. Along with that he plans on adding a bigger bedroom off the side of the cabin.

What we did this week was put hardwood flooring in the kitchen, tile the back splash and counter top, move the pile of junk wood from a torn down old woodshed, paint the kitchen and livingroom, make coat racks, hang shelves in the 2 main bedrooms, and hook up the kitchen sink drain. We also brought the small couch up with us. I hope to get some more pictures of the inside up soon.

Our son moved the shower to the porch of the old small cabin that will be a sauna someday. We were taking showers out the back door last time but he and his wife were there with another couple and decided to move it for more privacy. It's kind-of cute the way he did it, Petticoat Junction style,. That's DH taking a shower, I took the picture from the driveway. We see a couple cars or atv's go by when we're in it but I doubt they can see us, lol.

  2. Hi,
    I noticed you are listed as a friend of Ullja Kuntze, on We Love Etsy,

    You may want to research her online activities and decide if you REALLY want to associate your name with hers. She was kicked off of etsy AND artfire.

    You can start by googling Ullja Fraud, and also find lots of background information at . She's not a nice character. :-(
