The Cabin Years
Now and Then
Once upon a time, far far away Leo and I bought a little cabin. And that was the end of all of our vacations. You see this cabin had to turn into a cottage. Originally, it was dingy, dirty, moldy, and dark. But, it had some charm. So, this is the essay called how I spent my summer vacation. A picture is worth a thousand words.
The front being torn off. The back, a series of wasp nests and rotten siding. Luckily one of our neighbor's had some of the original siding. Oh, boy, let's all play with Asbestos! And this brings
us to this year and 4th of July.
The kitchen originally looked like this: and then it looked like the picture on the left. So here we are many years later.
We have a new roof, electric, plumbing, windows, heating and closets. What don't we have? That's right a kitchen.
I'll let you know how it turns out.
It's a great place to do a remodel. The town is a geographic anomaly. It's about a week to get anything from anywhere. So, we try hard not to forget anything like nails.
Zack and Casey have lived here throughout the winter with no kitchen. They're hoping for a kitchen sink. Me, I'm hoping the kitchen electric gets in so that I can bring the old fridge currently residing in the living room home for my veges. All the new appliances are in the living room along with the cabinets, parts, tools and the kitchen sink!
