Come On In

Welcome to the inside of our home:)

The sun from upstairs.

The ladder is genuine aluminum and is full of dried mortar, an original.

Thanksgiving in our construction zone!

Smoking the Thanksgiving turkey.

Now we are getting back to our regular lives that we had before we started building. Just in time for the lakes to freeze over too!

Our plan is to slowly work on interior details over the winter, so stay tuned.

And Then Your Done

Well not really. But we did officially move in Nov 2!!!! It was amazing to wake up in our own home, custom built by us (and a lot of friends and family).

Now details details details. Cory and I are both taking some R&R for about a week. I headed home to my parents for deer hunting. Cory is embarking on a wilderness deer hunt for a week too. Sorry no pictures this week. I just couldn't publish a picture of the pile of boxes/tools/everything we own. Stay tuned for those photos of our soon to be organized space that is our home.

Propane and Propane Accesories

The wood stove, back up propane heater, and oven are in!!!!

The break in fire.

The supports for the stove pipe still need to be put up.

We also built our front door and hung it. The hardware is still a work in progress, do to the extra thickness of the door.

Also the trench was dug for the power line to the house.
The countdown begins to move-in day!!! Only a few more days.

The Times They are A- Changin'

Progress progress progress. Pictures speak a thousand words for the past few weeks.

Check our that floor!!!!!

So many people helped out the last couple of weeks, Thanks!!! We couldn't have done it without you folks. Even this little guy:)

Not only have we made great leaps foward on the house but we even had time to help out some other builders with a timber frame raising.

And, I was sent on a 6 day fire assignment in the wilderness.

Soon to come, installing the wood stove, propane, making a door, and probably snow.

The Roof, The Roof, The Roof is on Fire!

We are finally doing it, roofing.
Cory is marking where the rafters will sit on the ridge board.
This was interesting and heavy!
Fall came in a hurry. The colors are peaking here already.

Yeah!! look at all the room in the loft!
Here we started framing the overhangs.
Next weekend, finishing the roof.

Here Comes the Sun

We did it. The cordwood is done. Hooray!

Finally we were able to work on other projects. Like cut those trees that have been leaning towards the house. We probably should have cut some of them down before we built the house. But where is the fun in that right?

We also bought our wood stove. We had been waiting for it to go on sale.

Soon to come our roof!
