Thanks! We got a lot done today. I'm tired. Next step is to get all these up on the roof...



We also built an extra little roof to cover the new kitchen door...





Then, after our afternoon beer break, we got the stove up and in. It's damn heavy...



And, as always, a pic of my hotel room for the weekend...

Roofing continues today. We're gonna tear down the small roof over the kitchen door and redo it. Got some wires run for more 12v lighting, cutting panels, Curtis still not helping, etc...

Not sure if Big Greg is staying but Robb is staying up there tomorrow. He'll finish up the wall with the two new windows, and may get started on the three five foot windows going horizontally at the top of the front kitchen wall. Didn't get a picture of those.

Moar pics:

Curtis keeping warm by the wood stove...

Obviously not hooked up yet but Robb got a nice little sink for the bathroom for free somewhere. The composting toilet is actually producing compost and doesn't smell at all. Sweet.

IMG_6194.jpg

Sideways Curtis sunbathing...

IMG_6220.jpg

Robb with a nail gun, always dangerous...

Curtis guarding the beer...atta boy!

Since y'all have really only seen pics of the cabin area, I thought you might like to see what it looks like getting down there. Of course, the gate on the left leads down to the cabin. The gate on the right leads up to the house pad.

Half way down the steeper-than-it-looks driveway you can see the well pipe and the free trailer that we haven't had time to fix up yet. Once I get to the bottom, I would normally take the hard left down to the cabin but it was full of trucks and vans. I parked where Robb and Jen originally planned to put a used Airstream...before they decided to completely rebuild the entire cabin.

I apologize for the door chime

Can anybody guess the old dirt bike on the left from 3:08-3:10 ?

Had a lot of traffic so it took an extra 1.5 hours to get up here. Turns out I made it just about in time for the end of the work day and the beginning of beer drinking

He bailed home to SF. He didn't get any walls done. He got a chiropractor appointment to help with his dirt bike crash deal. Not sure when we're up there next. I think we might squeak out one more work weekend before Turkey Day. Not sure though.

edit: he's headed down to Baja tomorrow to crash his dirt bike again LOL. He'll be gone for at least 10 days.

It's really peaceful...when there's not a miter saw, table saw, compressor, generator, etc running all day. I much prefer the beer drinking & meat grilling weekends but sometimes you just have to go up there and bust ***. After we were done working we just ate dinner, had a few beers and went to bed sore. There was a mason jar of Advil on the picnic table all weekend. We're old'ish. Didn't even have a chance to take Curtis down to the creek-side lounge area this time. The payoff, of course, is that the outdoor screened porch/kitchen is huge and will be a real enhancement to the property. Plus, it will be able to sleep a lot of people on big weekends.

Diggin' the Valknut on Big Greg's shirt. Skal!

You guys are jamming on the restoration. I'm really impressed.

Damn, I had (almost) forgotten about the freak snow storm we had last Thanksgiving. After the outdoor kitchen is buttoned up, he has to do something about the driveway. It's getting to the point where you can't get regular cars in or out. His GF came up on Saturday afternoon and they almost didn't get their car out on Saturday evening, in dry weather. Last winter, Robb even had to use his winch to get his van up the hill once...even with 4x4. Gotta grade the driveway and lay down gravel ASAP.

"Big" always has the coolest shirts. Don't know how he does it because he's an absolute giant. Gotta be 5XL...damn freak haha.

Glad you're enjoying the adventure! Just wish I could get up there more often to work on the endless list of projects. Robb does contract work so he's 18 months on and then 6 months off. Unfortunately, his "off" just started a month ago so most of it will be during winter.

edit: once the outdoor kitchen is done and there is a sink in there, it'll be time to get the well going. Jen ain't gonna sit around looking at a kitchen with no running water! Well pump on generator will fill a large tank above the cabin. The water tank enclosure is already there; he just has to find a new clean tank that will fit inside of it.
