Storage above kitchen beam
Exterior, in winter
Hot tub in winter
Bedroom (with dog!)
Porch and stairs
Way, way before. 90 years ago.
Garden by driveway
Nice new view.
New paint on the eaves.
After. Yeah ok, still need some second coats of stain.
Vintage, original shutters restored
Backyard dining area
The tub backs up to Murray, a favorite (gigantic) rock.
Cellar, with new log cladding awaiting stain
Veggie garden walls are dry-fitted
New side stairs!
Both railings stained (one coat anyways)
Loft floor: where the second “before” photo was aimed
New stairs and railing
Hey looky, you get a sneak preview of the new stairs in the background!
Kitchen coffee/tea station: Needs trim around the door, but…
From kitchen into bath – re-used, solid, quality wood trim (needs paint)
Kitchen island rebuilt from table found in house from the dining room side – pretty tidy
The lovely little stove.
Study window – done!
Bathroom: One window done, one undone.
In the study: The letter tray (also vintage) was scored from a trash pile at work. Working at a large institution is good for getting old steel goods.
Walk-in closet with open shelving
In the kitchen: IKEA pilgrimage successful.
In the bathroom, pre-trim: Hmm, what’s missing on this wall?
Although most of our kitchen units are vintage, repainted finds.
Stainless steel island in the foreground.
During mega log replacement phase
This is probably the worst part. The good news: no stain removal, whole log removal instead!
From up in back
Before: not great roof, and chimney needs gone
Before, during roof replacement: Two of the last four fascia boards – right out front!
Tarpville. Plus a lot of hanging ‘laundry’ from mopping up a small flood (no problem, just an unexpected rain at the wrong moment).
One support to hold the cabin up by the rafters…we added more
Before: living room. As purchased.
Before, from front door, after we cut some walls out.
