Reframing and Roofing Process

Blog Cabin 2013 Structural Framing

Exciting things are happening at the home site. Have you checked the cabin cam? The home is starting to take shape and assume the silhouette shown in our floor plan slideshow rendering.

Today, I’d like to share new photos snapped by project manager Dylan Eastman. I can’t wait to see that cupola, casting a soft glow on the south lawn.

  1. Mary or Dylan would it be possible for someone to make up an album of pictures of the interior of the house once the electric and plumbing have been roughed in, but before sheetrock, so that the winner would have a good idea of where things are inside the walls? Thank you.

    • Thanks, I have had a couple of new construction houses and always tried to get pictures so that I could blindly find my way around after I moved in.________________________________> From: > To: > Subject: Woodworker from MN replied to your comment on Reframing and > Roofing Process >

  2. Jennie/Florida- Concerning the question you had about robot mowers……..I found one under Brookstone Robo Mow. When finished for the day, it automatically docks back at the charging station. What a marvelous device. !

  3. Luv the idea of a Murphy bed, Kudos to the designer that came up with this one. When you live on any kind of open water more sleeping arrangements are always welcomed. Love that view.

    • I love the Murphy bed idea too. Did you notice the little sign that says "Bath Crashers Was Here 1-31-13"
      I hope the crew will save the little signs they have been making for us fans. Would be a great little extra for the lucky winner of the Cottage.

  7. Gorgeous and dreamy. Really appreciating the views. The upcycling has been creative and well-done.

  8. It would be nice to have just a portion of the porch screened. Maybe tucked away in a corner with a small bistro table so as to enjoy breakfast or a late evening snack.
