The family cabin pics

What a spectacular sunset, huh! Can you believe this was taken w/ my cell phone???

Radiant floor heating being set in basement.


Mike unloading the humongous supply truck ~ what an experience THAT was! Thank goodness my dad was there, we needed all the help we could get.




Mike working on the subfloor ~ his poor knees are so swollen ~ and he said "his dogs were barking" (feet hurt). Ssssssoomeday, we'll have a garage attached to the left side of the house.



Standing on the subfloor, looking towards the back of house ~ I think I'm standing where the stove will be. Now with that view, I can stand there and cook all day!


Standing at the back of house looking down at the footers for the deck that will wrap around the back and side of cabin.


The back of the house looking towards the mountains. In real life the mountains look so much bigger, I'm using a super duper wide angle lens.


Putting up the subfloor ~ the front door will be on the left ~ my friend standing in the front, is in the kitchen area ~ the boys are screwing in the sheathing.


Basement ~ gotta love those big ole 4x4 winders


Our concrete guy making the floor nice and neat. Glad the floor is neat ~ there were a few blow outs on the walls (not so happy bout that, looks kinda ugly) so we will need to "fir it up".


Pumping the concrete for the basement floor ~ now that was an awesome sight.

Here I am hammering in a ... a ... not sure what it is ... some kind of brace, but it's for the basement wall. I didn't do very well, I have weak arms ~ needed one of the guys to come back and hammer it in.
Logs coming this Friday ~ Mike will go up for a couple weeks and start stackin.

I can't believe how quickly the cabin is taking shape already! I know at some stage it will all slow down and all the 'nitty gritty' details will take place...but for now... it's fun to watch!!!

Are you kidding?
That is gorgeous.

I can't believe the view and the size of that 'cabin'...I wouldn't ever get 'cabin fever' in that gorgeous setting.

All the best of luck with it. It's amazing.

What you can't see are the hundreds of cows down in the valley...

you can hear them "moo'ing" all day .. it's so cute.

They are actually let out and they roam all over... they come up on the property too... they like to eat Mike's compost piles!!
They leave droppings for Mike's compost piles as well.

OMG, there are a ton of deer up there too.. sooo cute.

g-man said...

Way cool!!! I am excited for you. Thanks for the great pictures. I did chuckle when I saw the one of you swinging a hammer (it was cute) and laughed when I read "the boys are screwing up the sheathing" I had to re-read it. :) Can't wait for the log pictures.

Great looking photos, good looking house, and Beaver rocks! Can't wait to see the final product. Oh by the way, heading back to UTAH next week and this time I will be gone for two weeks. Yes! Have a fine Vegas weekend.

Look at you ... helping out and all!!!!

With that view and everything, y'all probably need someone to stay there year-round and keep an eye on things.

I'll have my agent contact you to begin salary negotiations.

Looks like a gorgeous place. But why only one pic of a sexy blond with lots of hair working, did she sit on the sidelines during the whole process?
