Default My buddy's property in the Sierra **Couple new pics post #179 - 6/12/16**

***Most of the 2015 forum crash photo losses have been re-uploaded. Those of you who found this thread after the crash can now view all/most of the old photos. Huge PITA, but the thread sucked without all the pics. Not perfect but I did the best I could.***


Talked before about my buddy and his GF buying 10 acres in Nevada County. They closed ten or so days ago, so we went camping there this weekend, and it's freakin' awesome.

Thought I'd toss up some photos...

The old cabin will be a full refurb, but he's keeping the facade and will be hanging up a "General Store" sign. To the left is a 10x20'ish foot "shop" which is a complete tear down. That will be a new screened porch/outdoor kitchen area.

IMG_2961.jpg

IMG_2962.jpg

Friday evening we had trip-tip, salmon, asparagus, and some un-photographed potatoes.

IMG_2965.jpg

IMG_2967.jpg

For all of you that followed my 'new puppy' thread, including Sully especially, this is what Curtis looks like now

IMG_2971.jpg

A Viet Nam vet lived here for 20+ years and it's been idle for 10+ years. There's lots of trees to fell and brush to clear. It's an enormous project.

Of course, when you own land like this, you gotta have a quad, so we drove down to Loomis and bought a 2013 Yamaha 550 fancy *** thing for super cheap on Saturday afternoon.

IMG_2974.jpg

IMG_2978.jpg

Random pic of our puppy assaulting my buddy's GF...for Sully of course.

IMG_2982.jpg

Then we did what new quad owners do...quads, guns and beer.

IMG_2988.jpg

It's so peaceful...so the dogs can relax! ...again for Sully

Can't burn wood, of course, but these propane things are great!

Awesome. In another lifetime I may get the chance to do that. But not in kommiefornia, no way I'll be able to afford that.

Good luck to your friend and his endeavor.

And that dog is cute.

that's very very nice! tell your friend congratulations for me, he's got a slice of paradise.

I'm glad to see who's ever cutting the wood with a chainsaw is wearing gloves, leg and eye protection but you can never over do safety or caution when it comes to working with chainsaws. you might want to think about hearing protection.

but my main advice is just go slow and be super over cautious when doing that type of work.

and in that same picture what is the tubing and the 5 gallon plastic tank , in front of the vehicle, for? water inside the camper?

They only paid $129,000 for the ten acres. The original owner paid almost twice that for it ten years ago. Spring fed creek year round, 1000 sq foot house pad, made the seller pay to have a 150' well drilled/lined (~5 gal per minute), and had him do a septic assement as well. Less than $13k per acre and they can have electrical run in for about $12-$13k when they build a house.

Thanks for the dog compliment BTW - he'll be one year old on October 6. He's a good boy

It really is paradise. I'm quite envious. The wood cutter is the proud new owner himself, and he had ear plugs in too. Some friends that we've both known for 15 years that now live in Auburn, and myself, are going back up in two weeks to demo the 'shop' and gut the cabin. Then the rebuilding begins.

The tubing and tanks you see on the front of his super bad *** Sportsmobile camper van is his propane instant-on water heater shower thingy.

Beautiful area! One day, I will have a place like that..

Please let us know what you find in your metal detecting adventures. I'm sure there is lots of interesting stuff around.

Yeah, they had been looking for property in the area for a very long time and they really picked a good one. Pretty rare to find one with water running through year round.

We're going to do our best on the 'general store' cabin. Probably have to modify the back of the structure though because there is a big pine beginning to push on the back corner. Actually, you can see that tree in my OP.

Right now, it's just logistics. Gotta get a storage container for the quad and tools, gotta get a trailer for the quad, gotta get a construction dumpster on site, gotta get a composting toilet set up, etc. etc. And things move really slow up there - it's like they're on 'island time'.

Here's a picture of the attached shop we have to tear down and rebuild...

Oh yeah...as much as we can.

Damn, I should have taken a lot more photos!

The cabin floors seem solid but they're covered in rodent poop for years. We may just be able to pressure wash them and keep them. The front door is antique stained glass, but double-pane, and in great shape. Then there's two stained glass bi-fold doors leading to a pantry room that will be saved as well. Then the pantry leads in to the 'shop' which is the total tear down. Actually the pantry will probably be torn out too to make the screened porch bigger.

The bottom floor of the cabin has a kitchen, large wood stove, Dometic propane fridge, etc. That will all be torn out and turned in to a sitting area since we're building a new outdoor kitchen where the shop is. The large wood stove will go away and we'll move the small wood stove down from upstairs for heat. Upstairs is mostly bare accept for some cabinets and a fiberglass bath tub. That will get gutted and turned in to a sleeping area which should accommodate 6 or more people. Stairs are steep but very solid with a cool old brass hand rail. The cabin will be well insulated with wood paneling inside. No drywall or anything like that. Just a rustic camping cabin for those that don't have camper vans or hate tent camping.

The shop has great old wood on the outside that we can save and use again so it looks much like it does today. Structure will be all new pressure treated lumber. Not sure if he wants to use the existing footings. Much won't be known until we get everything torn down. There's a HUGE pile of lumber next to the cabin but it's mostly rotted. We used all the good stuff to build a large log cutting rack last weekend. Don't think we'll get much more out of that. Firewood.

There's a guy right down the dirt road who works for a local tree company. He came over and helped with the septic assessment a few weeks back. He's got a big mill, all kinds of earth moving equipment, etc. He rides dirt bikes and wants to ride with my buddy and show him the trail system, so we're hoping they become BFFs We need to borrow his log splitter for a few months.

Got a better picture of the full structure from my buddy...

***Can't find this pic to re-upload***

Cabin, pantry in between, and the shop. We're trying to coordinate a group of people for either next weekend or the weekend after that. He's offering up all the food and beer...and dust masks for demo weekend. Guess I'll take my own leather gloves. Sounds like a party.

Sorry to hear that ~

I can't even remember anyone of my stoves being that clean even new

" No drywall or anything like that." Could be a good thing, give someone and their pets a chance to get out. If nothing else do around the stair (walls and underneath).


Some good info here; http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/s....php?t=1112939

Thanks. It sucks being back in a tent while State Farm screws with us on the Sportsmobile payout. We used the new stove July 4th and Labor Day, and last weekend. I think I wiped it down with a paper towel on July 6. Worst thing is that our double wide Big Agnes sleeping bag was in the van when it was stolen

LOL! Trust me, that tri-tip was not burned. It was moist and delicious with crusty bits on the outside which all the humans and dogs enjoyed immensely

Still no progress on the shipping container/garage but the dumpster arrived on time Friday morning. Then the delivery vehicle got stuck and had to get towed out. From here it's a very tight right turn and a steep hill. With no weight on the back, he had no chance.

Only the shell of the cabin is left. Pantry and shop are gone. That's Fossil the dog in the foreground, and his owner cooking some tasty dead animals on the mini Weber in the background...

Finding some random things left behind by the Viet Nam vet that lived here for 20 years ...

Remaining cabin has nice floors when they're not covered in rodent poop. This is where the kitchen was. The extra framing is where the Dometic propane fridge was located...

The sink was on the right, small food storage closet and then the stairs...

The upstairs had a wood burning stove, bathtub, etc. All gone. It'll soon be ready for the non-tent type people. Floors are solid. The sagging roof needs to be fixed and the skylights will be removed...

Tagged for an awesome thread. My goal is to eventually have a cabin in the mountains.

That's the idea...build up a little sweat equity

Seriously though, they've already offered me and the GF to go up there any time we like. He's a friend of mine for nearly 20 years.
