However, we are staying at the cabin off-and-on during this week (spring break!)... and we do have chairs... and beds... and floors... and electricity.... ya know, most of the stuff one needs in order to be mostly comfortable.
I took two personal days off of work mid-March to move into the cabin. Here is a quick before/during/after of the living room:
We do NOT have a kitchen or bathroom just yet. Although the kitchen is ordered and we will be picking up the cabinets next week. In the meantime, we will set up a makeshift camp kitchen, which is what we've done for the past four years anyway! Also, we will continue to do our "necessary business" on the chemical camp toilet... just like we've always done. No biggie! .... and we will continue to refresh our deodorant, brush our teeth, towel wash critical areas and call it a day. Again, no biggie!! The bathroom will come... eventually.
But for now, do you wanna see around?? I will give you a small tour of some of our accomplishments and some of my favorite things.
|the world's smallest bedroom -- my sleeping nook! cozy little bed tucked into the corner with vintage feedsack quilts. above the foot of the bed is a photograph I took two years ago of male bluebirds fighting over a nest box.|
|the other side of the world's smallest bedroom -- an old beat-up antique cabinet for clothes storage, an old farm stool and an antique mirror so aged that it is almost useless for looking at one's reflection!|
|a close-up of my photography (above the bed)|
|view of bedroom from kitchen (more of my photography on the wall)|
|the empty corner straight back will be the future home of our wood-burning stove (the only source of heat in the cabin)|
|my bookcase! I love these books and can easily sit and look through them for hours!|
