Your Man on the Ground

Blog Cabin 2013Dylan Eastman examines the original Blog Cabin 2013 foundation after the home is lifted.

Hi all and happy Friday!

Pretty soon, we will begin coverage of the Blog Cabin 2013 remodeling process. Starting the week of November 26, project manager Dylan Eastman will offer up regular reports from the home site and, in late 2012 or early 2013, we will launch our “Remodeling of Blog Cabin” package on HGTVRemodels.com. It will be packed with behind-the-scenes details: how we handled the home’s many additions, made allowances for harsh coastal weather conditions and more.

So pull up a seat and plan to stick around — tons of photos and exclusive details are just around the corner!

  4. With our man on the ground, project manager Dylan Eastman, and our Blog Cabin sitting in mid-air, DIY bloggers and Blog Cabin fans everywhere are going to be floating on cloud nine come November 26 when those behind-the-scenes details are unveiled.

    Rest assured that I'll be fully recovered from my turkey-fueled torpor by Monday the 26th, and ready, willing and eager to devour every tidbit of information put on our plate.

    DBCoop on November 16, 2012 at 6:03 pm
    • Ahhh–the Tryptophan Torpor…. will Terri be helping you with leftovers ? ;)

      LLColeman on November 17, 2012 at 3:50 am
    • Aye, matey, Terri'll be there alongside her captain, sportin' the eye-patch, pegleg and swiggin' on a bottle 'o rum. But she better not be helpin' with too many of those turkey leftovers 'cause she's gotta lose a pound or two already. Otherwise, the young lass'll be spendin' some of her holiday time in the brig!

      DBCoop on November 17, 2012 at 12:42 pm
    • Coop
      I will be there too if I have to put toothpicks to hold my eyelids open! I can't wait to see what happens to this beauty:) This is going to be fun!
      Happy Thanksgiving to all and God Bless esp. those suffering through the after effects of Sandy. Thoughts and prayers and earthly help is forthcoming. Everyone be safe.

      ruffybc on November 17, 2012 at 9:33 am
    • We'll have to put our trust in DIY to remain true to the quaint cottagey feel of this seaside beauty even while the home is renovated from top to bottom. The end result for some lucky winner will surely be a warm, inviting, and comfortable beach cottage ready to welcome its delighted new owners.

      I can't wait for the excitement of the People's Choice voting to begin, and I'll be reminding myself all along as I make those choices, "keep it cozy beach cottage, DB, cozy beach cottage — don't get carried away with notions of glitz and glamor!)

      DBCoop on November 17, 2012 at 1:02 pm
  5. Thank You Mary for the update!! Sounds like great plans await this sea side jewel.
    It's Awesome that Dylan Eastman is back on the job as project manager for another much anticipated year of Blog Cabin:) I hope Victoria Lesser will be returning too :)

    Dylan is that a treasure map? I wouldn't blame you if you took a minute to make sure the OBX BC wasn't sitting on top of Blackbeard the pirate's lost treasure. Don't look too hard, in case I win, I'll be happy to look around myself. Have a great weekend everybloggie.

    Mel on November 16, 2012 at 6:18 pm
    • AAarrgghhh–ye might just uncover some ancient rum casks on the grounds….I was wondering what sort of holiday a Pirate Thanksgiving would be ? What sort of rum-soaked (or marinated) food would be served, what Pirate traditions could be started, what would pirates be thankful for ? Would everyone have to get up from the Thanksgiving table and go outside to search for buried treasure ? How would the hostess help her guests ward off scurvy ? Worse –what if some turkeys get loose and start a mutiny ??
      ( I'll be rooting for the turkeys…)—-hey , why don't any of the emoticon symbols have an eye-patch? ??

      LLColeman on November 17, 2012 at 3:57 am
    • LL!
      LOL! Aarrgh! ye matie (sp?) !o.0 Oranges! Let's see lets start with bringing out the egg nog with rum! of course! with a twist of orange:) Orange zest all around can be put into a compound butter & then put under the skin of the turkey to give added flavor:) along with sage, thyme,etc. Then there is cranberry orange nut bread-I am not allowed to come to the table without this item. Then there is always the jello mold in some families orange there too or you have the cranberry sauce both are grate!:) with orange in them. so no scurvy on this ship! I vote too for the emoticon symbol with an eye-patch great idea LL we have many pirates join our building blog:) I will be up in the crowsnest watching for more shipmates:)o.0 Happy Thanksgiving-gobble gobble Arrgh!

      ruffybc on November 17, 2012 at 9:44 am
    • Ahoy Ruffy!! LOL—-nothing says Thanksgiving like a citrus flavored jello mold! Me & Ye had some great success with last years blog cabin landscaping design!
      Can we do it again??
      Not in pirate speak, but here goes…..
      Hoping to see a rustic, beach themed landscape design. Simple stone walkway with pilings and rope spaced 8-10 ft apart bordering the walkway. Birds will like this too, and it will complement the dock. Stone patio, mixed bluestone, sandstone or slate so you have the beautiful blues, grays, and tan colors reflecting the water and beach. A custom made bird perch, made from driftwood, old ship anchor, pilings, etc. close to the patio so I can birdwatch in the backyard. Keep planting beds simple, seagrasses, ferns remember no fuss, maybe crushed shells for mulch. Think beachy curb appeal.

      Mel on November 17, 2012 at 10:41 am
    • Mel
      I got so wrapped up with the orange and too much rum I am afraido.0 that I for got to make suggestions. But I really do not have to. I agree with yours. I am also a big birdwatcher and would so enjoy if they would incorporate into the landscape some items such as you mentioned. I love and cherish the thoughts of someday being able to watch the ocean and the beautiful land and the birds. I have now a man made pond with running water and many birdfeeders-I can watch both of them for hours. I have to tear myself away sometimes to get work done:( It is amazing how water attracks animals of all sorts. I agree too with a simple, easy care landscape and I love grasses. There are so many to choose from these days and virtually no care. They beautiful in the wind. Also any stone in my book is welcome, pathways, patio whatever. this will be very exciting-this place has alot of charm. I hope they keep it beachy:)

    • Ahoy Ruffy, this sea cabin is going to be the perfect spot for some
      AAARRRrrrrr N AAARRRrrrrr

      Several of my in-laws live along the NC coast, and they have built some really neat bird perches. One was made with a strip of boardwalk. My brother in-law installed it to a height of around 4 ft. and a length of about 8 ft. and planted grasses around it. Shore birds love to sit on it. My father in-law made a great perch using an old anchor for the base. My husband, trying not to be outdone, has built a one-of-a-kind bird perch. It sports bird houses, and feeders, and the top (turning) part of an ornamental windmill. Since 100's of species of birds live in the area, and many more species winter there it would be nice to have landscaping features that draw the birds, seperate from the dock pilings and grapes, of course.

      Mel on November 18, 2012 at 10:30 am
    • Mel
      you have a very talented family and it is nice they enjoy your hobby:) I hope they do that with some birdhouses:)

      ruffybc on November 18, 2012 at 6:34 pm
    • Ruffy that was kind of you to say, thank you.
      My father-in-law is a remarkable man. It's a gift and a blessing when you can build and fix just about anything. I'm often grateful that he taught my husband all that he did. My husband has saved us lots of money, and the worry of "is that being done right".

      Mel on November 19, 2012 at 8:07 pm
    • Well, I was going to put in my 2 cents, but you did it for me, and perfectly. Thanks for that! DIY needs to keep it simple. I'd add a firepit/bonfire area as well, with plenty of seating. :)

      MGYinSC on November 19, 2012 at 6:55 am
    • Ahoy MGY, it wouldn't be right to put in hundreds of plantings, and make the yard fussy and high maintenance. I would love to see a firepit too.

      Mel on November 19, 2012 at 9:38 pm
    • ruffybc ! I thought I spied your barge nearing the N. Carolina coast ! Always on the ready to prevent scurvy, ye arrre……..I love orange peel in everything, and let's pass around some more rum eggnog. We have to keep up our strength, lest any of us have to walk the plank…(the plank might be greased with some of your compound butter,) LOL . A very Hearty Thanksgiving to ye also !

      LLColeman on November 18, 2012 at 4:17 am
    • LL!
      LOL! I forgot all about me barge!:)o.0 Arrgh! Good idea with the plank and the butter-let's hope we do not have to go to those measures? I am hopeful and excited:) Now I have to go find a parking space for me barge.LOL!

      ruffybc on November 18, 2012 at 8:52 am
    • Y0-Ho-Ho LLColeman, me loves ye Great bloggin' 'magination!
      An emoticon with an eye-patch—ye could make me smile everytime ye used it.
      And a Pirate Thanksgiving, well let me ponder, after pillage & plunder, and a feast in me musty quarterdeck I'd be thankful for the following:
      A short line at the "head", All me mateys, each lass and lad that I considered a "bucko"
      Of course me grog, or even stronger spirit ! If me enjoyed one to many "clap of thunder" I would find me self "loaded to the gunwalls"
      Nay, me couldn't "hang the jib" if me had a spyglass, sloop, plenty of doubloons, and aye a fearful reputation
      Most of all, me matey Mary keeping Blog Cabin updates moving along smartly—-Blog Cabin ho!

      Mel on November 17, 2012 at 10:07 am
    • Ay, after a delicious meal of Bone Soup, Sea Biscuits, Sour Krout and a few drinks of
      Bumboo we should be in a festive mood for dancing around a bonfire at Teach’s Hole. It may
      get a little eerie as night approaches, though. Teach’s light means that Blackbeard is
      searching for his head in the sound off Ocracoke Island.

      Blackbeard’s house, The Hammock House:
      http://blackbeardthepirate.com/history.htm

      "Have hammock, will travel!!"

      DeerSpring on November 17, 2012 at 1:51 pm
    • Ahoy DeerSpring, ye made me gut rumble, talkin' 'bout such de'licious food ! Me app' E' tite should be quenched after me enjoys three helpin's of Sour Krout, and one bowl of Bone Soup ( watchin' my carbs so I'll be leavin' the Sea Biscuits alone)

      And what a nice matey yer are, sharin' that link 'bout the Hammock House.
      AArrrr, Blackbeard was a real scarey pirate, yer he was….wearin' many pistols in his sash, and placing smokin' wicks in his long black hair & beard.
      Fearsome foe he was……….who knew he had such great taste in real estate?

      Mel on November 17, 2012 at 3:44 pm
    • Yo, ho, ho, Mel! LOL! I "be" a lily-livered lass just thinking about eating turtle soup but
      will sip on a Bumboo. I understand Blackbeard used his beard and hair for a napkin! He really must have been a sight and a fright with a flair for the dramatic. Eat, drink, and be
      merry for in the morn we "be" searching for buried treasure, whether it "be" doubloons or BC info!

      DeerSpring on November 17, 2012 at 4:57 pm
    • Nay DeerSpring, yer no lily-livered lass, aye yer had ye courage to go lookin' for the home of Blackbeard the pirate, and report 'bout it to the blog.
      Fish & chicken bones, crusts of bread must be how Blackbeard kept those smokin' wicks in place in his beard.
      Did you ever hear about Blackbeards best mate, another surly soul, Cap'n Awash? With his gold earrings, patch over his right eye, and beady glare from his left one, a wooden leg, and a hook for a hand, it's been said he kept enough fat in his beard to grease a mast. These two must have been a mangy pair. Thankfully they each had a gossipy parrot, that shared ye tale of the contents of thar beards with ye good folks of the Core Sound! Blimey tale, but passed down from parrots, this pirate lore must be true…

      Mel on November 17, 2012 at 8:41 pm
    • Aye, me hearty, 'tis a parrot tells the tale. As ye know, dead men tell no tales.
      Shiver me timbers, ye and meself should meet the fearless duo on a dark night!

      DeerSpring on November 18, 2012 at 9:57 am
    • Yo, Ho, Ho and a bottle of Rum!

      Aye, me loves yer wit DeerSpring :)
      Me thinks one of ye bones in the soup was a tooth duller or mollar breaker Should have swal'lered ye bone whole……… 'stead of tryin' to chew.
      Old salt will be tyin' me sash 'round me jaw, still able to dance a jig, and hold me blackjack full of rum! Oh me sash will be dancin' in the wind with me. Fearsome even in stupor this motley crew will be. Learnin' from the likes of Cap'n Blackbeard & Cap'n Awash! Be ye time to howl at the moon?

      Mel on November 18, 2012 at 11:04 am
    • DeerSpring me reply was sent for app'roval :(

      Aye, so as not to echo on the blog, me will wait to see if is appears.
      Shiver me own timbers, me hopes it will.

      Mel on November 18, 2012 at 11:18 am
    • Thanks! I'll be looking forward to your reply.

      DeerSpring on November 18, 2012 at 6:49 pm
    • Aye, Deerspring–if there be one thing I canna' abide at a gathering –it's a headless ghost of a surly and unkempt pirate. So as not to be heartless, I will be sure to leave out a few Sea Biscuits and a tankard of Bumboo outside for poor l' Blackbeard.
      If ye build a bonfire on the beach, I will bring me maties down for some merry dancing !

      LLColeman on November 18, 2012 at 4:28 am
    • Aye, feed the beastie. Ye make terms with the Captain. I understand he likes his rum
      set on fire with a sprinkle of gunpowder. Then, ye, meself, and the others can have
      the wind for celebratin'!

      DeerSpring on November 18, 2012 at 9:50 am
    • Mel, I likes the cut of your jib ! Pass a tankard of grog around to all the swabbies and start the Pirate Thanksgiving festivities-(-but NO firing cannons….some of us feel the "Clap of Thunder" in our heads already! ) Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

      LLColeman on November 18, 2012 at 4:22 am
    • Ahoy matey LL, me job this Thanksgiving were testing the rum, and makin' sure thars plent'E of Fried druit …………..nay, me means Dried Fruit for all me gold toothed hearties!
      Lurkey tegs………….nay, me means Turkey Legs for all ye seadogs! Test the rum.
      Turn ships…. Turnips! shhooo fleas….. New Peas!
      Can't 'member where the treasure's buried, or Ruffy parked her barge.
      Blow Me Down!!………..wouldn't take a Heave Ho! least me scowls improved.

      Yo, Ho, Ho, and a bottle of rum….Happy Thanksgiving to all !

      Mel on November 18, 2012 at 3:02 pm
    • Mel and DeerSpring– ye both have me chortling aloud !! I say we get an eye patch, gold hoop earring and a scabbard to present to Captain Eastman so he will be equipped to deal handily with any pirate ghosts that may show up during the remodel …will have to research Bumboo drink recipes so he can leave liquid offerings for the departed privateer souls on the land.

      LLColeman on November 19, 2012 at 3:33 am
    • Aye, LL, ye can appease the spirits. Captain Eastman and his hearty crew
      could uncover another story of pirate lore!

      http://www.beaufortobserver.net/publicationreturn

      DeerSpring on November 19, 2012 at 8:38 am
    • Arrrgggh DeerSpring that looked to be an intriguing link–but I got a page of coding with lots of "disallowed" notations—enough to make me fall off the plank and quaffing too much grog and bumboo…o.0 :o

      LLColeman on November 20, 2012 at 4:58 am
    • me too.

      vicki_in_Utah on November 20, 2012 at 8:48 am
    • Aye, LL, ye need to keep your wits about you with the serious sailin' ahead.
      'Tis a tale of one Edward Salter, a cooper, on Blackbeard's ship.

      DeerSpring on November 20, 2012 at 11:27 am
    • If Ruffy brings 'em down on her party barge, They might feel a bit hot there in NC, but then, come to think of it, they might just be feelin' the embers from the Barbeque–North Carolina is very famous for its vinegar-based barbeque sauce…don't know how that recipe will go on moose… hard to think seriously about bbq moose when they like to play the same run through the watering hose game as I always did–I mean that's like being soul mates! =/o.0<3 Kitty

      DwnSoDwnEaster on November 21, 2012 at 12:50 am
    • Kitty
      Sauce sounds devine!:) but I do not really do moose or deer or elk. Not so much the taste just the image:( I think we have plenty to eat on this planet-we don't have to eat it all:) I enjoy just looking at some things-without a fork!
      But the" Pirate Party Barge" is filling up-HoHo Ho! and at least one bottle of rum! make that a barrelo.0 (s) hiccup! Everyone welcome don't trip over Mel or LL they are doing very important quality control of the rum supplies! This may effect their jibs?

      ruffybc on November 21, 2012 at 9:16 am
    • RRRuffy–as a twelve year old, I got to go with me parents on a tour of the Bacardi Rum plant in Puerto RRRico…arrrghh, so I be a virtual expert on rum by now. Just because I am lying face down does not mean I have had too much libation…a good rum needs to percolate through yer pores………
      if I can find where me " jibs" are located, i will tell ye whether they be effected…

      LLColeman on November 22, 2012 at 6:20 am
    • LL
      Me Jibs or Ribs?? be spliting with laughter! You are so funny:) We are having a good time already and we haven't even started the build! I was not awares that we had such a rum expert:) keep on! And don't let your jibs or ribs get to full from all the turkey with your rum today! Happy Thanksgiving& Many blessings to you and your family.

      ruffybc on November 22, 2012 at 9:12 am
    • Kitty–just saw 4 men on video trying to rescue a moose that was stranded out on some ice, on a show called " Animal Rescues", so that made me feel better…no– I could not bear to see moose end up on a dinner table after seeing the momma with her 2 youngsters in that sprinkler !
      The moose on the party barge would be invited to be guests–not on our menu.

      LLColeman on November 22, 2012 at 6:14 am
    • LL, I agree! I mean, I won't eat Bambi's relatives either! That mama Moose looked like she was having as much fun as her babies. Kids don't need lots of toys. Just simple creativity–no matter from what genus they originate! LOL!;):p:p<3 Kitty

      DwnSoDwnEaster on November 23, 2012 at 5:30 pm
    • I agree with every word you wrote.
      I tried to give you additional thumbs up but I guess they only allow one per customer.

      Eugenia27 on November 23, 2012 at 8:25 pm
    • Thanks, Eugenia! That's thoughtful of you! :) I don't hold anything against hunters who eat what they hunt, but I have always rescued wild animals, and, having lived my childhood in Brasil with missionary parents, I had the chance to be given interesting pets, such as a hawk and a jaguar, by Indian tribes, in the late 50s (dates me…) Love animals! Bet my facebook friends get sick of me posting animals on my timeline! I do try to mix it up, but I am a mushy person when it comes to soft furry or feathered friends. And for the record, I'm a thumbs up person too. It is my habit to affirm positively, when one contributes something good and uplifting or useful. Use negative TDs scantily and only RARELY for extreme offense TOWARDS the blog and not just for difference of opinion, which to me, everyone is entitled to. But we Bloggies who stay with it become like a family and I don't want to see anyone say something offensive to or about a "brother or sister Bloggie"–but that doesn't mean that I will return an offensive attitude for the same. I try to mediate and share peace, if I can…Here I am, jabber, jabbering like a parrot. Hush Kitty! Thanks for your kind, succinct comments. :) ;) ^_^<3 Kitty

      DwnSoDwnEaster on November 24, 2012 at 9:52 pm
    • Kitty, how wonderful to have a pet jaguar; I’m not sure I’d let my daughter have a jaguar. You must have great parents.
      Do you speak Portuguese? I got to spend a year in Ecuador and I had a pet casumbo. (A type of monkey that kind of looked like a dachshund that could swing from its’ tail) No, I don’t speak Spanish. Every one used me to practice their English.
      Having been in other countries helps us to be more open minded to cultural differences in people. We are both blessed that way.
      My guess is that we are not too far off each other in age.

      Eugenia27 on November 25, 2012 at 4:28 pm
    • OK Mel me matie! I think you need help testing that rum or maybe you got some bad rum (if that exits?)o.0 I left me parrot on the deck of the barge-he is checking out the corn for the corn souffle:) I hope he does not get into the rum again:( Last year we ended up with popcorn instead of corn for the corn dishes!
      Me thinks LL may have had too much of the rum supply too! Out to the barge with you!
      Even pirates have standardso.0
      Happy Thanksgiving to all :)

      ruffybc on November 20, 2012 at 10:28 am
    • ruffy–those must be some pretty LOW standards, LOL ! ;) ;) ;) :p

      LLColeman on November 20, 2012 at 10:02 pm
    • I may be LOL-ing too hard to cook this Thanksgiving !!!:p:D You Privateers have had me in stitches!!! Thank you!!! Laughter's the BEST MEDICINE and you sure whipped up some good stuff for me… Not so sure it's medicine or grog and bumboo but whatever, I don't care right now–goes down GOOD!:p:p:p:p<3 Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!! <3 Kitty

      DwnSoDwnEaster on November 20, 2012 at 10:43 pm
    • LL
      LOL!:p they are standards none the less and I am afraid they may be less-lassy!o.0 It has not been easy or fair sailing for us pirates these days:( But I see better skies up ahead:)
      We will have fun anyway! Happy Thanksgiving-maybe I will interview some turkeys to replace my parrot! -can they balance on your shoulder? Maybe not!
      o.0

  6. Mel has Dylan Eastman worked on a DIY project before? I don't remember. But Iknow this would be Victoria's 3rd BC if she is to do it. I hope we didn't give her too much grief over the powder room MIA on the 2012 BC.

    vicki_in_Utah on November 16, 2012 at 8:08 pm
    • Yep Vickie, with Dylan returning this year, it makes his third year in a row as the BC project manager. DIY found him at Courthouse Construction, Inc. in Gloucester, VA when they renovated the Susan, VA home. We didn't hear much about him last year, we heard more about Knickerbocker Group.
      I know you watch the BC shows. Dylan had a brief cameo in the House Crashers show. When Josh was showing Grundy the message center, Dylan was hiding inside. Grundy clutched his heart, and acted scared. It was funny. He must be a good fit with the DIY network and the blog cabin concept, since he's becoming a regular.

      Victoria is an Amazing designer, and was so good to the blog. She gave me the impression she sincerely cared about how the bloggers liked her work. Overall the feedback last year was extremely positive, here and on Facebook, but I've always heard it's the negative comments that you remember the most. I hope she is thick skinned enough to return. She is a Very Talented and Kind lady.

      Mel on November 16, 2012 at 9:18 pm
    • I love Victoria !! I was sorry about the powder room, but that was a separate issue from her design work on the BCs–in terms of decor. It felt like she did not have as much opportunity to do as much decorating in this year's BC, compared to the one in Mathews, VA. I really hope she will return…when I saw the antiques in this new BC, i knew they would be items Victoria would have selected herself…so much resemblance to the way Victoria has decorated her Inn in NY state.

      LLColeman on November 17, 2012 at 4:04 am
    • I agree with you, LL! Victoria would have so much fun with all the furnishings and knick-knacks from the Robinson's years of collecting. I have already done my own once over and gathered items which need to go together on display, I can visualize things Victoria might do…it's so much fun! Please, no greens this year!!! BLUE and WHITE and BEACHY–Patriotic!!! Need outdoor shower! Indoors on 1st floor, we need full Master Bath AND a 2nd Bath that includes at least a shower, PLEASE–with Chocolate Kisses on it? A 2nd Bedroom on 1st floor too–for In-Laws! MUST have upstairs Jack and Jill Bath(S)!!! BIG Dining table! Open Living area.

  10. Can't wait to see the progress. It's hard to see the big picture when the house looks like a big spider in the middle of nowhere. I know whatever they do will be awsome.
