Here are some highlights:
Behold! The magic and miracle of ELECTRICITY!
Natural light still wins in the beauty contest. Jamie in his future chambers, I mean bedroom.
Lots of snow, lots of love.
and now for some COLOUR inside!
Jamie and Swamp mixing clay paint, otherwise known as an alis.
Rich and warm master bedroom wall.
Beautiful organic colour (the entrance).
Having little idea of how to mix clay colours, this is what we ended up with for the upstairs hallway! Love it! Love natural clay painting...the texture, application and look are all appealing.
The master bedroom oiled.
Sometime in the colour phase, we finished the masonry heater, decorations, tile and all.
and THEN THERE WAS A PORCH!
My cousin the builder (Charlie) and family came to visit and quickly and lovingly built us our front porch (Phase 1)! Thank you Applefords!
And here it is: Fall after the garlic harvest, covered in...stuff....sigh.
AND HOW ABOUT THE TILING?
Masonry heater tiled floor.
The shower stall tiled - what a beautiful feat for a first time tiler!
The bathroom floor and bathtub backsplash tiled!
and THE MOVE BEGINS...
Jump to November: smelling snow on it's way, we shifted gears and moved the shed...amazing what a little bobcat can do!
and the cabin! after hours and hours of jacking up each corner inch by inch.
