Hello! It’s been awhile since I’ve posted and I wanted to show some of the progress on our cabin remodel. If you’ve been through construction before you know that it never goes as fast as you want, but our Contractors have been very busy this Spring and here are some of the pics of their progress.
Total Bathroom Overhall
Okay, see that beam in the upper right portion of the photo (and sorry about the crappy, grainy photo). That beam, ceiling and the floor are all that have remained from the original bathroom.
Same beam in the upper right. We saved as many of the cedar boards as we could and reused them, so the cabin would have the same look and feel AND to be green AND to save money! The cedar boards in the center left of this photo all came out of the demo’d kitchen.
And the new medicine cabinet and lights…
and now the new sink and doors! We are really happy with how this turned out. (Still a few little things here left to finish.)
And here is the original tub…
and here it is sanded, painted and with new faucets. We love it! No shower here at the cabin, just a relaxing bath. The plywood in the upper right is where the new window will be.
A cute, little kitchen
When we left off, the contractors had just set the concrete counters and we were waiting for them to dry.
A whole lot of polishing and here is the finished concrete countertop. When we first saw them wet, we worried a bit we picked a color that was too dark, but it dried lighter and now we love it! (Those are just wet streaks in the photo from me wiping it down.)
Here is the finished pantry with a microwave shelf. The cabinets are done except for the hardware. The board you see on top of the counter is a shelf that will be mounted on the back wall for storing plates/glasses, etc.
The upstairs railing is done, so no more worrying about falling over the side. Sooooo much better than the ladder before!
His and Hers Bedroom Closets
Here is the framing for the closets upstairs. We had to make use of the oddly shaped spaces upstairs for hanging storage. The rod will be a little low, and it might look a little strange, but it will be functional.
Spring has Sprung
Part of the fun we are having is watching all the new growth pop up and exploring the woods. We have a small patch of these adorable wild violets,
and a section of these beautiful moss covered rocks. We’ve been exploring the woods as much as possible this winter, because once all the thorny bushes start blooming and the poison ivy and all the critters come back out – I’m staying OUT of the trees!
The windows and doors are on order and we are waiting for those, and the warmer weather, to arrive. And they both can’t come soon enough!
