It’s Move In Day!! After months of waiting, we received that awesome call from our contractor saying our door and windows were finally installed and the squirrel holes were all sealed up tight. So we rented a truck, picked up appliances at Home Depot and took advantage of the 3 day Memorial Day weekend to move in.
And LOOK!! The black is finished! And I love it. From this view, the back deck still has to be built, and the broken window fixed, but other than that it’s done. Oh, and there are supposed to be mullions on the upper windows, so they match the French doors that are both upstairs and downstairs. I guess there was an ordering snaffoo and they are changing those out.
Doesn’t it seem like when you move it will take FOREVER?!? Well, we were fortunate and this move in went pretty fast so we had time to enjoy the beautiful weather.
IKEA KING SIZED BED
Here’s what didn’t go so fast, assembling an Ikea Brimnes king sized bed. I think it took us both 4 hours overall to complete it and it wasn’t hard. But before starting any large Ikea project, read the instructions thoroughly!! Just sayin.
CABIN PHOTOS “SEMI-FINISHED”
Here are pictures of the cabin after move-in, but as you can see these are not the final, finished “moving everything so it looks perfect” photos. I just snapped these on my cell, but I wanted to share them with you anyway.
I’m so, so happy with how it turned out and will share more pictures and more of the DIY projects my husband and I completed for the cabin.
Now all that is left is the front porch, balcony and deck. Hopefully completed in time for a Fourth of July weekend at the cabin!
