Beaver Blog Cabin

This is Matthew's trapezoid window. We had to make it a slider so that if there were ever a fire, a firefighter could crawl thru the window.

This is the trapezoid window over the staircase. Only one more window to put in and we're done with windows ~ and the cabin will be totally "dried in."
Getting that trim up to cover the double insulation, that cost us double what we thought. lol Well, that part really isn't that funny.


Mike is still caulking... he has one more side to caulk. It takes foreeeeevvvvveeeerrrrr!
Also, it's getting colder now, and it has to be 40 degrees or higher to caulk outside. I don't think caulking is Mike's favorite part. It's murder on his finger.


Next, the covered deck across the back and the side over the hill. Woo Hoo! I can hardly wait for that!!!!!!! It's going to look so much bigger w/ a covered deck.


Thennnnnn at some point, they will put up the balcony outside of Kimmy's room.

Is that metal roof I see? We had that put on our cabin by the river. Sure is nice sleeping when it rains.

That looks beautiful! Our goal is to eventually build our own log home....someday.

Everything Mike does makes it look more beautiful. I love the trim. It really finishes off the roof. Matthew is going to have lots of air and light in his room. He will love it.....
