Cabin plumbing, house plumbing – it’s all about water!

2-7-17 Cabin Plumbing Jerry our plumber came today to work on the plumbing at cabin #5 and to replace our water heater. Our water heater has been installed since 1987 and finally got sick. It didn’t totally die, but when it started leaking we decided it was time to invest in a new one.Bob and […]

What a difference a day makes!

11-26-2017 The sunset is totally different tonight across Lake Florida. It’s very foggy and we can barely see the trees on the south shore. Lake Florida has not frozen yet so the lake gauge is still in the water. This is getting really late for freeze up!

Friday night sunset at Dickerson’s Resort

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!  

An early snow at Lake Florida

11/18-19/2016 Things are about to change at Lake Florida. The weathermen are forecasting as much as 10 inches of snow so Keith & Travis went back to their other building project at Lake Andrew (a “cabin” 10 times larger than ours!) The snow started slowly, but it was wet & heavy. Look at Bob getting […]

A roof over our head

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 […]

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 […]

The carpenters are coming!

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 […]

The destruction of cabin 5 continues – one piece of wood at a time

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!

Our first guests in cabin #9

Today we had our first guests visit cabin #9. As you can see, it was a beautiful day! The Peiks have been staying at Dickerson’s Resort for about 7 years. Their “official” cabin is #7, but they have also stayed in cabin #12 and the old cabin #9. The 4 of them had an overnight […]
