February Progress

Picnik collage

I think we are due for a February update on our Maine construction/rebuilding project.

You can see the siding is coming along beautifully, as are the porches, and our fireplace. I think all windows are in, except one little one, which is good news, as the Captain spotted The Squirrel again (the one who lived in this camp before we did). And you can see how the inside really isn't in livable condition yet - so I didn't bother taking too many pics.

This post shows you what was happening a month ago, and how we are living in our two-room cabin during construction.

(Yes, one bathroom + no washing machine + stomach flu + seven people = stinky situation. Literally.)

You can also take a look at what we started with last year, here:

While the camp looked quite quaint even as it was, it was lacking some... hmmm... things. Like a septic system, insulation, or modern electricity (it had knob&tube). It had lake water coming in from the pipes, and rain water through the roof. Wind would blow the curtains, even if the windows were closed. A part of the building had a foundation, but most of it didn't. You can read about our pioneer days here last year by going to April 2011 posts. Fun times, fun times. In the Fall we started renovating, and it is very exciting to see all the progress.

  6. I know, Jessy!!! It is exciting:)

    Mary, the Captain & I don't exactly see eye-to-eye yet on the bunk beds, that's why I keep looking for 'looks'. We'll figure it out:)
