before and afters of the cabin

In no particular order, because i am feeling lazy...

here are a bunch of pictures of what the cabin looked like after we had been there for a week (when we got there initially there was no insulation)

This is Luke working on putting up tongue and groove.. that doorway to the left of him is one that him and his dad cut, bringing the old part of the cabin and the new part together... it was a big step

please check out Luke.
Luke and i worked on the basement and put cedar up on all the walls, it looks good and smells good too.
here are some after pictures of what we got done...

the hardwood seemed to transform the space and make it look a lot better...

i learned a whole lot being out there and working, and it was a lot of fun.  i didn't think i would really miss being out there sometimes while we were working, but i really do miss it.

i am kind of in LOVE with this at the moment...

what a beautiful day that was

B.C. Memories

 We've been home for the cabin for a few weeks now... and i found some pictures on my phone from some of our time there. 
 When we went into Salmon Arm we went to the Farmers Markets... I love Farmers Markets, and I LOVE the fresh fruit and veggies from BC.

 We also went and wandered around a saw mill... their tools look ancient but considering that we used lumber from them, i would say it works good.

 One memory from the Cabin was a little sad for Luke as battery acid did a number to his clothes
 thank goodness it didn't get to his skin
there is so much i need to blog about - like my wedding in detail - it just seems overwhelming and i am consumed in a job search. 
but hopefully soon - for my records mostly. 

If anyone is wondering Luke and I are doing great - being married is a lot better than not being married, and Luke is kind of a dream come true.

we're still waiting to hear ANYTHING from immigration
