Earlier in the summer, the guys invited some friends (13 of us, total) to tackle some work together. I was the designated cook/painter, and I think everyone really enjoyed themselves.
The facing of the front of the cabin is courtesy of some wood that had been housed on the family farm in Iowa. We love having something so carefully stored by Rob's late grandfather.
The hope is to finish the outside of the cabin addition in the fall and then hopefully work on some inside projects next year! We're getting there, slowly but surely.
Here are some pictures from the weekend, and the results!
|the inside project - insulation and vapor barrier|
|working on replacing the old siding with new|

|finishing the facing - late into the night|
Since these pictures were taken, the other side of the facing has been finished (with the Iowa wood). The guys hope to bring their friends again to finish the rest of the siding, to put stone on the chimney, and to insulate the attic. I'll plan to be there to cook - we like to bribe our friends with food (it seems to work!!).
