Interior wall framing & start of loft

After a hard day of work at play... being cuddled by his Auntie Tanji while she studies.

Tim put those humungous beams up by himself w/ a little motorized lift we have. Everyone is amazed at the work Tim can do by himself!! My mom has always called him the one armed wall paper hanger.


Another beautiful sky up in Beaver. The skies are always sooo beautiful up there.

Hanging the very first TJI over our room for the loft.
This was a monster!
Seconds before this pic was taken, Tim was almost bapped on the head by that humungous TJI ... it tipped and fell and then Timmy lost his balance on the ladder. It was a near miss and scared the bajeebers out of us! I almost had a coronary heart attack.

Those beams looks great - you have a talented "crew"!!

Almost too bad you have to put up walls, it's so pretty inside like that.

Hi,
I came over from Shelley's blog and thought I'd "snoop around" your blog! My hub and I are planning to build a cabin when he retires in *7 years. We're only in the "looking for property" stage right now.

I was looking through your photos and am amazed at your journey. I am in awe of how your family is doing the work themselves! It's really beautiful and it looks like your property is bit of heaven on earth.

Visiting other logger blogs as well as the magazines (3!) that we get each month makes me incredibly eager for the day that we can start our own dream!

Thanks for letting me stop by!

This cabin is certainly a masterpiece.

Tim totally amazes me at how much he can do all by his lonesome. He climbs all over that place like he is spiderman. Who needs to pay to see such excitement?

Little Magoo was surely pooped from all his efforts on the cabin and at play. He is a busy all the time doing this and that. He is liken to the Energizer Bunny.

Thanks for the update and hugs to Magoo and you too!

Man, I wish I had skills like that. Unfortunately, the only skill I have is sarcasm. I can barely replace a toilet.
