Log Cabin Projects

We are headed up to our log cabin this weekend to enjoy some more of Fall's colors as well as work on our projects. Our builder Randy has made good headway on our punch list items and there is only a couple more for him to do such as putting flashing in on the front of the cabin near the deck, repairing the bathroom drain and putting "weep" holes in our log deck railing outside. These weep holes will allow the water to drain thru which will be especially important this winter. I also need to get a quote for putting cultured stone on the exterior foundation. We decided against using our own rocks we gathered once we learned it might not stick as well. Randy may be hunting so I might have to chase him down next week....

Greg and I have our own list too - finish sanding the basement log stairs, getting the loft set up (it's pretty bare) and odds & ends such as hanging a bathroom mirror and pictures. I feel like with every little thing we do, we are turning our log cabin into a log home!




Right now the loft only has a queen and twin bed - nothing else. Have to get some furniture and nice rustic decorative items.













Of course I have to make time to go kayaking on our lake!










I think my fall decorations are complete except placing some pumpkins on our deck. I have a feeling the squirrels will shred them within a week!

Your decorations are lovely. I agree, the squirrels are probably going to destroy your pumpkins, but they need to eat too. :)
