Here is the back story:

Rob’s father owns a cabin about 12 miles from our home. He has owned it some 40 years I guess. He built it from the ground up.

Fast forward to recent past:

They are ripping the cabin down. The cabin where my husband spent a great deal of his childhood. The cabin my FIL built. Tearing it down. They are putting in it’s place a new fangled fancy cabin that they have to dig into the hillside to put up.

Kindly, though, his father is letting ROB do the tear down. The tear down includes a 12’x10′ shed that we are going to use for a new chicken coop. The old coop is going to be a tool shed. The rest of the cabin is going to be reconstructed as a barn and the screen porch is going to go onto the South side of our home-we’ll cut in a door from the family room to access it.

Rob brought the 12’x10′ home today and began reassembling it in it’s place in the yard.

So that’s the deal for now. I have other stuff to write about, but not just yet. I’ll post photos as things progress. I’ll even try to post photos of the cabin deconstruction. It’s been a time since I posted anything, but I have been busy. The slow down months are here, which means LOTS of knitting, LOTS of soups and breads, LOTS of tea, and a little bit of blogging.

I have missed it.

The Project Plan

Today’s progress: I ran out of paint. I have to get more tomorrow and finish up the chalkboard portions. I am enjoying this project and the envisioning of the end product. This is going to be fantastic. Just wait until you see my perpetual calendar after the tape comes off tomorrow! I’m excited!!
