24th Posting - Ceiling is finished
This is the first posting since last spring! My travels have kept me on the road virtually nonstop since March so I've not gotten nearly as much done on the cabin as I would have liked. People ask when the cabin will be done and I tell them the project is the destination! However, I've made some progress, particularly the past few days. My friend Rod, from Maine, came out and helped for a few days and we finished the ceiling trim, cleaned it all up, and installed a beautiful mural on the upper part of the back wall. Now I walk into the cabin and look at the Swiss Alps!
My friend Alan took this photo of me early September.
It's Fall and the cabin is snugly tucked into the hills!
The robins love my stock tank (bird bath!). There are dozens of them.
Rod wipes down trim and foam board to give it a clean look.
Rod enjoys a break in front of the cabin.
Fresh snow on the Tobacco Root Mountains
Dark brown boards trim out the ceiling on all seams and in the corners
to give it somewhat of a Swiss look.
This gives good perspective of the interior of the cabin with completed ceiling.
I still need to put another coat of adobe on the walls, and will worry about the floor after that.
Looking at Eiger, Monch, and Jungfrau out the back of my cabin!!
Swiss style - Swiss scenery!
The mural as seen while sitting in chairs by the picture window.
Cleaned up and ready for winter.
Mother enjoys sitting in the sun at the front of the cabin.
A grove of cottonwood trees below my cabin puts on a last show of color.
And one more lovely sunset before heading home and concentrating on my two upcoming trips to South Africa!
