Cabin Update!!!

This weekend we went to the cabin to start putting up the interior walls. We are going with a tongue and groove pine and it looks great. We have taken out the sink, counter top and cabinets and will replace them with new materials when we can get them. We have 90% of downstairs completed and I will finish the plumbing before I start on the upstairs. We have decided to add a shower in the bathroom so we can eventually shower "indoors" with Warm water!!!. My next few trips there I will be working on the plumbing and mowing the grass in the field next to the cabin. When I get the "funds"... I will be getting a tractor with a bush hog which will help speed up the mowing part of the job. We met out new neighbors Friday and come to find out they live in Little Rock and he is a plumber!!!! What more can I guy ask for!!! He told us they will be getting city water within the next few months so we should be right behind them!!! Hurray!!!!

Overall, it has been a fun time working up there. I would cut the wood and Stephanie would nail them in place. I must admit she is pretty handy with a nail gun. At one point she and I took a break to see the boys chest deep in the middle of the pond catching tadpoles! Now understand, these tadpoles were huge!!! They were having a blast. later that evening we cleaned up and went into town for dinner. Saturday we drove into Branson, MO to shop and play around. We hit our usual spots then started back toward the cabin when we ran into some major Thunderstorms with Tornado's. This Spring has been the craziest weather I can remember. We finally made it back to the cabin to "clear skies" and a "Peaceful" evening!!!

I go a picture in my head of two boys up to their chest in the water catching tadpoles! I just love it. Wish I had been there to help them. (Notice I said them...)
I'm so proud for you both, it is taking on shape and looks great.
