Ok...ok. I know. I haven't posted anything in months. Sorry. I'll repent.

Here is a quick update on my crazy cabin project.
The Kings came over a while back and we straightened out the front wall as much as we could. It still is crooked, so the door will hang straight, but it looks like it's crooked. If we hung the door according to the wall, the door wouldn't be able to swing inside :0) Such is life.
Sid Facer is the one who did the foundation brick work. He came and knocked out the brick for the doorway (just one layer down...can ya tell?) It was quite a process.

Now we've been working on getting that doorway the right size and the door the right size. They had to trim the door off the bottom because it was built for a house with 9' ceilings. Long ago, this was my mom and dad's kitchen door. I wanted a door that had a window since there are no windows in the cabin except for upstairs.
Looks like we'll have to reach to our knees to twist the doorknob. Oh well. Worse things have happened.

Now I've got the lumber all ready to go for the floor. We're going to lay 2x6 joists and put down insulation and a nice subfloor. I don't know yet what will go on top of it, but that will be a ways down the road anyway.
