How-To: Make a Budget-Friendly Camera Mount

If you’ve been following past Blog Cabins, then you know we love sharing time-lapse photography to capture the remodeling of our dear homes. Have you ever wondered how we get that step-by-step photography? Project manager Dylan Eastman shared a handy (and inexpensive!) project for creating a 360-degree camera mount on DIYNetwork’s Made + Remade blog. Plus, we have a video showcasing the device in action. Check it out!

  4. I don't know if anyone mention the video that they show of this home yet, but I just watched it and wow I can't wait to see what they do to this home, the improvements they will make I just can't wait. I hope they leave a lot of the things that are there now, but still make all the great improvements too. (we had lost power the week of Christmas, so I might of missed it if they did). If you missed it too, go watch it now…
    See what I mean by watching the video at top of the page. Hardwood floors, old Ice box in the kitchen, 2 bedrooms, dinning room, breakfast nook, bathroom, sun porch, window walk, basement, etc.
    I hope they can put a basement in for the home at the new location too.

    • It really is a great home! Because the water table is so high here in FL (especially lakeside), basements are not the norm – I was surprised to see one in this home. We can, however, build UP … You see this on the coastal sides often – homes on "stilts, with parking and an apartment or storage underneath the main level. If they are unable to save the basement space for the new location, it can be recreated in so many different ways: Guest House, Boat House Storage, Stilts etc. I'm certain that DIY has something GREAT planned for this house and I can't wait to see it all come together!!! :)

  7. I'd have to say that time-lapse photography is most suited to the Blog Cabin adventure, and I always appreciate being able to check out the latest photo additions as the DIY renovation progresses.
