I didn’t expect to have a cabin update so soon after telling you that we weren’t going to be able to do much work on the cabin this year, but here we are!
It’s been almost eight months since I’ve updated you on our progress with the cabin. So, I thought I’d show you what we got done this spring.
Since February, we’ve been focused on outdoor projects.
If you’ve been following our cabin progress, you might recall that I’ve been collecting free doors for a secret project (to be revealed at a later date). We’ve rescued quite a few doors from curb piles, but this project is going to take a lot of doors, so I also asked friends and family to keep an eye out for us. That paid off last week. My sister-in-law called to say her friends had some doors they wanted to get rid of. So, I called them up, and we went over to pick them up. That trip netted three doors. Awesome!
We just got back from a couple days at our cabin, and I’m excited to report that we finally have an herb garden! That had been on my to-do list for way too long. My friend, Jo, finally got the ball rolling. On our first night up there, she gave me a bunch of herbs for my birthday. Mostly stuff that she had dug out of her own garden, with a couple store-bought plants sprinkled in. My kind of gift.
So, today we set out to get everything planted. I knew I wanted to do a raised bed, but we didn’t have any lumber on hand to build one. We considered driving to town for some boards, but that would have taken over an hour round trip, so we decided to get creative with what we had instead, and soon my husband returned with a cast iron bed and a plan.
