Beaver Blog Cabin

Burrr ... it's bitterly cold. Weather is lousy. This is the first side beam!!!
The mudroom to the left, open area will be the entry way, octagonal area is kitchen on first floor and the upstairs will be Matthew's room... or a guest room! It has such an awesome view.
It's a family event today... putting up the first beam. Those puppies are heavy!!!
Outside of the dining and living room area. The french doors will come off the dining room. As you can see, Timmy has it braced real good. Those winds are crazy windy. Like my husband said, "You can't even comprehend how big it is from the pictures". This is so fun. We need to keep our fingers crossed that the winds obey Father God!! At least til we get that main 60' beam up top!! One more week... one more week.... The beams arrived! They are buhhhhh uuuuu tiiiii fulllll!!
Look at my little magpie. Isn't he soooo freaking cute. His Auntie Kim bought him this preppy little outfit. He was not happy with me actually, he had wanted a squirt bottle to squirt Sunnie.

Hurray for the progress on the beautiful cabin!

Agreed... Matthew is so freaking cute! I like little Magoo's preppy little outfit and adorable cross face. Poor kiddo just wants to squirt the bird.

It is coming along beautifully. It looks big in the pictures, so it must be huge in person.

I swear y'all are building a castle of a "cabin" out there. That thing is huge.

Matthew doesn't look too happy in his "preppy" outfit.
