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 […]
11-25-2017 The sunset was beautiful again tonight. Lake Florida has not frozen yet, so it seems like another beautiful, fall night. We’re looking forward to another great day tomorrow!
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, […]
11-15-2016 Today Keith and Travis are building the ceiling of the main floor bedrooms or the floor of the upstairs bedroom depending on where you are standing. 🙂 Bob is keeping us warm and keeping things neat by burning the smaller pieces of wood. It’s another beautiful day, we really don’t need a fire, but […]
11-14-16 Keith & Travis are working on removing the top layer of the cabin floor. Say good-bye to the pink and tan floor from the 60’s! Do you think they need 1 more crow bar? 🙂 Bob just happened to have 2 more long ones they needed. I guess it’s a challenge for them to […]
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 […]
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 […]
11-10-2016 Bob and I have been having fun taking cabin #5 apart, but there is other fall work to be finished too. The bottom kitchen cupboards are one of the things remaining. Last night Keith Collins from Collins Construction called and said they would be here Thursday at 7:00 a.m.We are excited and thankful! Today […]
11-9-2016 Today we are going to tackle the wood on the living room ceiling and walls in cabin #5. Now that the wood is off of the wall I can just push the sheet rock out! We gave Bob the job of disconnecting the water heater. The end of another great day of cabin destruction!
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!
