Back To Work

Bulbarella and my building contractor will be arriving for the season very shortly. It means I will be getting help in the garden and starting back to work on the construction of my own cozy little cabin, right after the diagnosed snow storm this weekend.

The shorter end of the second dry stacked stone wall beneath the cabin is taking form. The wall will rise with the slope from here. I do not want to bury the footing and post for the back stoop.

It has grown a little higher.

The wall may become an inbetween things, time filler project now. I want a roof over my head ASAP.

There is a floor, four of six wall sections and front and back decks done. There is a whole lot left to go.

While not building a cabin or working in the roadside vegetable garden or clearing and planting areas of my own garden, I will be working for my two clients.

Mrs. Client #2 called to request a meeting to discuss more work. You can't find a job closer than across the street and they own the whole mountain. This could be a very good thing.

This could be an AMAZINGLY good thing:live in a beautiful, remote spot and cross the street to go to work?! Dude, that's my total fantasy job!!

Sounds like you are going to be a very busy person! Spring in the temperate climate does that to you. I just wanted to say your walls are looking lovely and I can't wait to watch your cabin go up!

Lisa, you should open a bed and breakfast.

I'll be meeting with Mrs. Client #2 this afternoon, in the snow, at the former B+B house across the street.

Bev I can't wait to see my cabin go up too! That process should begin on Wednesday with a look to see where we are and what we need.

Sounds like you're settling comfortably into a niche. Great job, Chris.
