Blog Cabin

The Bones of Blog Cabin 2013

Last week, we launched several new features that capture different aspects of the Blog Cabin remodeling process. We focus on reframing of the home and original buidling materials that will be incorporated into DIY projects and decorative accents. And wait till you see this video! We follow the evolution of the home in a series of 3-D graphics. You’ll see the original one-room cabin morph into a two-story home, crumble to the ground in a series of demolitions and rise again in its beautifully remodeled shape and floor plan. Enjoy!

  1. I saw 3 guys this time, but since it's night time, there is probably some "double negative" stuff because the camera still shows day light…

  2. OMGoodness!!! I have been so busy recently that I have been missing out on the good stuff! Finally catching up on posts and had a good laugh over all the ghost comments…and Jennie, I did get to see the panorama pic (that's what is showing up on the cam now) so I did see the "ghosts"…what a cool picture!!! o.0:o:D

    I hope everyone has been doing well! I have missed chatting with all of you! I didn't get to vote today before this round ended :( but I am looking forward to Apr 4th for the cabin comfort votes!!! Hope everyone has a great night!!! :)

  3. Clive if there is a portal on the property I don't think I want to win any longer. I have seen too much Ghost Hunters, Ghost Adventuers, Haunted, etc. I know you all are just joking around.

  4. Good morning everyone. I cant wait untill the sun comes up to see what was done yesterday, as long as the darn cam cooperates. Yesterday wasnt a complete waste though, after all of these years it seem we blogers have solved and found the lost colony of Roanoke.xD

  7. Hi Shelly313 ! May I join you with perhaps the planting of the flowers? Can not do the heavy stuff anymore, but sure love the beauty of the end results. They always do such lovely work and make it native planting so it will thrive. What knowledge people.Thanks DIY. ;) <3 Have a great day everyone! ;) <3 Bloggers are such fun. ;)

  8. What a great history of the cabin. The family was creative. This seemed to be a loving caring family for each other and their needs. They were glad of what they had and added on to the house to fit their needs. Thank you for sharing the history. What a great place for new menories to be made.
