Cabin Comforts Gift Set Winner

Blog Cabin 2013 Dylan Eastman and Kayleen McCabe

Congrats to Annette Harris of Morgan, UT. She is the proud winner of our Cabin Comforts gift set. An identical gift set will be presented to the winner of the Blog Cabin 2013 Giveaway.

Keep checking the blog for additional info on this year’s home. We have yet to cover landscape details, creative outdoor spaces and building challenges, plus Core Sound culture. The photo above was captured over the weekend, as project manager Dylan Eastman put the finishing touches on the outdoor kitchen. Rescue Renovation show host Kayleen McCabe popped by for a tour of the home and was happy to lend a helping hand.

I am pretty certain you will flip when you see the virtual tour of this amazing property!


  1. This is the best Chanel to watch and very inspirational people. This cabin is so beautiful and whoever wins it will be so lucky!! Good luck everyone!!

  6. Thank you Rhonda, the Tropical Storm is probably close to the Cottage on the Sound by now or getting close to it, possible flooding, tornadoes and high winds are predicted for that area..I hope our Cottage Fairs well…The only good thing about this storm is it's moving pretty fast and doesn't have time to do a lot of damage…I'm afraid Maine will be on the end of the list so maybe by the time it get up there to you it will be just a rain maker..Take care and stay safe…Keep up posted!^_^<3

  9. Thanks for posting this link DeerSpring! I was hoping we would get some word on how the cabin did in Andrea. We are just headed for lots of rain and some local flooding in areas that are usually prone to floods. So we are doing our spring weekends anyway.

  10. Thanks DeerSpring. Morris Marina reminded me of Portsmouth Island since they have cabins on one end of the Island, and provide a ferry over from Atlantic, NC.
    Portsmouth is a place I want to visit when I go back to the NC coast. I love that this village has remained untouched by development, and is protected from development, being a part of the Cape Lookout National Seashore. It stands as a memorial to how life was lived on the NC coast for generations, and being on the north end of the CLNS is close to the BC. Here's a link to video about Portsmouth Island

  13. I should have said on the right border under her Instagram photos. You can click on the photos
    to enlarge and read the captions. : )

  14. I'm eager to see just a little tiny peek at least before the reveal! Hint! Hint!

  15. : )

    DeerSpring on June 7, 2013 at 3:29 pm
  16. I'm not sure either because I only saw this reply by coming here on the blog, Jennie.

    DeerSpring on June 7, 2013 at 3:33 pm
  17. It looks like Laurie will be making sure that everything is in place. : )

    DeerSpring on June 7, 2013 at 3:40 pm
  18. You're welcome! The rainy days from TS Andrea seem like the rains of an extended spring. It's
    starting to look like a tropical forest in my neck of the woods. : )

    DeerSpring on June 7, 2013 at 7:54 pm
  19. Right On DeerSpring!
    It's an amazing feeling to visit these isolated beaches, to walk them to "the point" they end in an inlet, and have the powerful and majestic Atlantic both to your right and to your left. You do feel like you have discovered a land no one else has ever heard about or seen before! Since the barrier islands form broken strings of land, then ocean, land then ocean, thus creating a swirl of water currents the surf fishing at the various inlets is amazing. Someone is gonna be so Freakin' Lucky to win this home. Good Luck Deer, I know you are a fan of Carolina beaches :)
