There’s a lot of fishing going on at the resort today!

12-01-2017 Today our plumber Jerry and his brother Ron came to rough in the plumbing at cabin #5. As this was an existing cabin, they will need to cut a few holes in the sub-floor and fish the water and gas lines under the cabin. Keith, Travis and Justin are also here working on the […]

Cabin #5 – the roof

11/25 & 26/2016 This morning Keith, Travis & Justin came to put the roof boards on cabin #5. When they are finished snow and wind won’t be much of a problem! Sunset through the framed in lakeside windows. On Saturday morning Gigs from Perkins Lumber in Willmar came with the boom truck to set the shingles […]

Another day of work at Cabin #5

We thought Keith was here just to […]

If Connie makes Dickerson’s Donuts, will you come?

11-21-16 The snow made for a short week last week, but now it’s Monday morning and time to get back to building the cabin. One of the projects for today is setting the rafters. The first one went up at 8:30. The job would have been easier if the weren’t electrical line in the way, […]

Airplanes, knives and lures – oh my!

11-13-16 This morning we went to our church, Calvary Lutheran in Willmar. When we got home we put on our dirty clothes one more time, took the radio to cabin #5 and listened to the Minnesota Vikings loose (starting to sound like a broken record!) while we removed the lakeside deck of cabin #5. Sasha […]

It’s time to remove cabin #5 deck

11-11-2016 Our task today is to start removing the walkway on the south side of cabin #5. Keith and Travis will continue with other things. Now that Bob has the top boards off, Keith made short work of the project with his sawz-all! While all of the activity was going on at the cabin, Connie […]

We’re off the the landfill!

11-7-2016 On Saturday we took our load of carpet pad and sheet rock to the landfill, but it was closed. We were so disappointed as it would have been so cleansing to get rid of it! Our job first thing this morning was to head back to the landfill and empty it so that we […]

It’s time to roll up the carpet in cabin #5!

11-6-16 It’s time to roll up the living room carpet in cabin #5. Now we remember why we put the carpeting in years ago!  There was some rot in the floor that Bob fixed and then of course we had to cover it up! The ceiling tile have been removed (that was a dusty job) […]

November 3 – the cabin destruction continues

All of the carpeting has been taken out of the cabin bedrooms and look at the linoleum we found in the master bedroom. One of the most fun challenges is to see how large a piece of sheet rock you can remove! Destroying walls can be fun too!

Locating the water line at cabin #5

One of the most important things we needed to do on Wednesday was to locate the water line. Right now the electrical lines are attached to a 4×4 on the cabin. We need to move them while we take the roof off and build the walls. We’re getting a pole from Kandi Power Co-op and […]
