Wow, it’s been a while!

Wow, it’s been a while!

I think I was overwhelmed with everything we were trying to get done, plus doing the blog, so most of my updates ended up on instagram (which I no longer update at this point). We moved into our cabin on April 16th of this year! We are finally home! It has been a rocky road …

End of 2017

End of 2017

I can’t believe how long it’s been since I last posted an update.  I think it got to be too much to do it all and keep a blog going.  It’s now almost the end of 2017, so it’s a good time for an update.  The cabin isn’t done, but we are now seeing the …

Dump, supplies, and a very hot day!

Dump, supplies, and a very hot day!

Today we did, what we hope, is our last dump run until the cabin is completely finished and we are cleaning up the mess that’s left!  It is very hot (in the 90s) and humid today here, but we were able to get to the dump and get everything unloaded before we turned into puddles. …

It’s been a month!

It’s been a month!

This update is LONG overdue, sorry.  We have been working so hard the last month and dealing with highs and lows and struggles and challenges and triumphs and oral surgery for Hubby and blogging just wasn’t on the top of my list.  Our major accomplishments are the new roof and the new windows! The roof …

Fairies in the yard

Fairies in the yard

Life continues on, even while building a cabin, so the children and I spent an afternoon with the fairies.  I remember them from childhood, but haven’t seen them since, so it was very exciting when not one, but many appeared, dancing on the light breeze in the warm afternoon.  Technically they are Woolly Aphids, but …

Delivery, Chimney removal, and Dump run

Delivery, Chimney removal, and Dump run

Tuesday was my 40th birthday, so we spent the day together as a family.  We drove through a local state forest and got to see the state tree, animal, flower, and bird!  Even though we didn’t do any actual work on the cabin, we got an important delivery…the spray foam insulation.  So far the experience …

Cleaning up, removing the fireplace, and ripping out ceilings

Cleaning up, removing the fireplace, and ripping out ceilings

Friday was “spend spend spend” day :/  I wasn’t doing well on Friday, so Hubby, even though he wasn’t doing well either (horrible tooth problem, needs surgery) ran errands.  He spent some time in the morning on the phone, finishing up the roof order and trying desperately to find a dentist.  He left to make …

Slower updates

Slower updates

Sorry about the less frequent updates.  I’m exhausted and sitting at the computer for an hour or two to resize and upload pictures takes a lot out of me.  Lately, I have been especially tired and in a great deal of pain, I’ll survive, but it’s making everything tougher.  I will do my best to …

Challenges, demo, and a full trailer

Challenges, demo, and a full trailer

Yesterday didn’t go as planned, not even close.  But life goes on, so we won’t dwell on that. Today, we continued working on demoing.  We made pretty good progress!  The kitchen walls are all gone, the bathroom saw some demoing, and the nook that will one day be a bedroom is empty so we can …

Plants, demo, and a tetanus shot

Plants, demo, and a tetanus shot

It wouldn’t be a holiday weekend without a tetanus shot…. hum, that doesn’t seem right…. oh well, I need a tetanus shot and it’s a holiday, so can’t get one until tomorrow.  At the moment I can’t remember all we have done since the last update, so I’ll just share what I can remember…. today. …
