Update : Cabin Bathroom Phase 1

Hey-a! Friends. I got a project done on time! I had planned on using August to demo and redo phase 1 of our cabin bathroom and I actually did it! Normally I try and save this sort of inside project for the winter months, BUT because phase two involves a lot of tiling and I prefer to do my tiling outside (especially since we don’t have a garage) I needed to get phase done this summer so I could start phase two in the fall before the snow hit – which I’m sure will be happening before November. You need water to run a tile saw, and I prefer my water unfrozen. READ MORE

Black Exterior Paint on the Cabin!

Hey-O! I’m back, fine people of the internet! Hope you have all had an amazing wonderful summer. We sure a nice one. School started yesterday, and I’m excited to get back to a more regular schedule of projects, taking photographs and blogging. I have to admit, I’m a little overwhelmed by all the possibilities of what to do next that I just had to decide on one thing and JUST DO IT. I have managed to work on projects this summer and take some photographs, it’s the whole blogging thing that I didn’t seem to have the time or space to focus on. Now I’m playing catch up and want to get you all up to speed on what’s been going on... READ MORE

Outside At the Cabin

Oh woah, it’s nearly August already? I forget that having two kids with July birthday’s really makes the month fly by. I’ve been working on a lot of little things this summer, each of them taking up a day here and there, sometimes it’s hard to tell if I’m really making progress at all. I was really hoping by now that I’d be able to share photos of the new exterior paint on the cabin. It’s been a bummer that it hasn’t gotten done yet. I had high hopes that I would get time to enjoy the cabin’s new look the majority of the summer... READ MORE

As you can imagine or maybe have experienced, it’s hard to furnish an entire cabin. Your basically starting at square one, and a lot of what we have at the cabin has been stuff I’ve been socking away in hopes of one day having a cabin. The room that really took the brunt of my alley-garbage-day-finds was the guest bedroom. Everything in that room except for the the clothing rack, and the sheets is either from the garbage, something that has been donated to me, or something that I have hoarded. READ MORE

I want to spend a good chunk of the summer focused on updating the exterior of our Wisconsin cabin. I’ve got big plans, and at the top of the list is a new paint job. Since the day we looked at it, we talked about eventually painting it black. I like the grey-green color that the board and batten is stained now, but it has already faded in the two summers we have been here. It needed to be freshened up, and for us it was the perfect opportunity to take it to a darker place. READ MORE
