Cabin, outdoor shots


I've never had a basement before

But here it is in its vast glory:

The stairs look kind of rickety. They're solid though.

I've never had a cistern before either:

The contractor said he'll clean all the junk up.


Moments of zen

Let's remember why we did this:

Our neighbors say big horn sheep use our front yard as a place to eat in the fall.

Fall was just making its impending presence known when we were there two weeks ago.


What have I been doing with my time away?

Greetings friends and family of Bystander!

Whoa! Blogger's changed since I've last been here. Here are some updated photos of our cabin. A good friend of mine is going to help me furnish it.  Below is Gene trying to do what the stove guy couldn't, that is, attach a pipe to the wood-burning stove.

We have a railing!

 This is the living room before we got the hardwood down.

This is the kitchen. By now we have a stove/oven in it, plus a real laminate coutertop.

Le water closet:

As you can see, it needs a curtain in the window.

Below are two pictures of our floors. The carpet is in the loft. The hardwood is all over the living space on the main floors. I cut the planks to size and Gene hammered them in. More pictures to come ...
