My Weekend Homestead – A Month In

This post may contain affiliate links. View our disclosure.

The kids were out of school for Election Day yesterday, so we squeezed in an extra day of work on the cabin. We’ve been working on it for about a month now, so I thought I’d give you guys a quick update.

Cabin - Before

This is what the cabin looked like when we started.

And this is how it looks now. We’ve replaced all the broken windows across the front of the cabin, but the biggest change is on the back side. Remember how it was wide open in the back?

We’ll, we’ve been working hard to get it closed in.

Inside of Back Wall - 1 Month In

And we’re almost there!

On our next trip up, we plan to finish the back wall, to frame in the kitchen and bedroom and to replace the rim joist on the left side of the cabin (it’s rotten).

Things are moving right along!

    We would love to see more of your weekend get away pictures. I also like your Jeep!

    1. Hi Judi, I should have more pictures to share soon. An update is definitely long overdue. We’re still quite a ways off from tackling the finishing work, but I couldn’t resist buying my paint already 🙂
