Beaver Blog Cabin

Timmy sent this to us today. He has started the rows for the upstairs. That will be Matthew's window... he's got a great view of the mountains. Mike was teasing that maybe we'll just have Matthew take a room in the basement and we'll save that upstairs room for guests.

The rest of these were taken last weekend while my sister and I were up for a visit.

This will be the master bedroom w/ french doors.
Looking towards the family room and dining room and kitchen area.

The french doors off the dining room.

The back of the living room... there will be lots of big winders and a french door.




Look at that grin.

Here are the "bad ass log builders". I hear this is what they've been calling themselves. The big sillies. Tanji had a couple T~shirts made for the guys that says "bass ass log builders" on the back. Tanji is standing there, too.. but she's wearing overalls that match the color of the logs.
This is the front of the kitchen.
Matthew in his new little snowsuit, mittens and boots that grandma bought him.

Oy vey. The big lugs. This is Amy, Quixa's BFF.
A quick picture before we left. This is outside our dining room.

They sure have made a lot of progress. It's really looking like a cabin, huh! We went up at the end of October to stake out the site.

We're going back in a couple weeks so Mike can help to put up those main beams and trusses, to prepare for the roof.
I want to hurry and get that done, I guess it's been quite windy up there... I'd hate to see those walls blow down. They are braced, but it could happen.

Merry Christmas!
