  1. Labor Day
    Wanted to thank the crew for their "labor of love"<3

  2. Sound :
    the waves lapping
    breeze whining
    birds chirping
    squirrels opening pecan nuts
    fire pit cracking
    Ah, but we want a landscape feature says DIY
    So, I choose the power of the double entente (I learned form Coop)
    and choose "The Sound" , Core Sound
    and all the beautiful audio, visual delights
    I found

  3. My favorite is the waterside porch. Love the dock and the outside kitchen.

  4. The dock is probably my favorite landscape jutting out into the blue waters. Standing near or far, there is beauty to be found in any direction. Very soon now, any one of us may find that cozy home to be our own. Good luck to all!<3<3:D

  5. We could certainly use yard crashers in Western Washington. Not sure if I am past the time to register for the Blog Cabin. Was just watching them put kitchen together but it could be reruns that I missed before. Beautiful place. Love the colors used.

  6. I must say that Chris Grundy, all the various "crashers" and everyone else involved in the building of this wonderful Blog Cabin , what a fantastic job done by all! The home is gorgeous. The 3 acres has been landscaped beautifully. I'm pretty sure the cupola is not a landscape feature, but imagine "shimmying" up the walls and peeking out those windows! What a site to behold. I have to say that the cupola gets my vote as the number one feature and number two would be the dock with the surrounding beachy area including the sand the water and the greenery. A great big thank you to all the wonderful, creative people involved in the making of The blog Cabin 2013.xD<3:p
