Thanks to a lucky curb find, we’re one window closer to having all the windows we need for our weekend homestead. I spotted the window you see above while we were on our way to pick up the kids the other day, and thought it might work in our bath house. When we pulled over to take a look, we discovered that it really was a bathroom window – it has frosted glass. How perfect is that?
Then, this morning we spotted a compost bin in another curb pile, and scooped it up (this is our second compost bin rescue, if anyone’s counting). Since we already have a good compost system in place at home, we’re going to haul this one down to our weekend homestead and use it there. It should help to keep the animals out of our compost.
And apparently this is our week for cabin finds, because while we were at our local Habitat Restore this morning, my husband spotted a high-efficiency portable air conditioner with a $100 price sticker, and he just happened to have a $25 off $100 coupon in his wallet (see why I married him?). So, we paid $75, plus tax for an air conditioner with a suggested retail of $599!
We looked the air conditioner up when we got home, and it’s capable of cooling 425 square feet, and costs about $1 a day to run. Pretty sweet deal, I think. Now, we just need to wire the cabin, so we have something to plug it into. Details, details.
The weather has been slowing our work on the cabin down a bit, but I should have another progress report for you soon. Spoiler alert: the cabin has both walls and windows these days. Cuz we’re just fancy like that.
