Another cabin post....

Mike went up to the cabin last weekend, to finish up the ... darn it.... I keep forgetting what it is he did.  I know it starts w/ an S.  I don't know why it's SO  hard to remember this word.  Stirfry? Stucco?  Sheathing?

Ugh.  It'll come to me.

Anyways, he finished one side when the girls & I were with him, and he finished the electrical inside the cabin and the other side (whatever the S word is...).  He took along his friend Justin, and he put Justin to work painting.

Now.... we had two shades of greens picked out.  We decided to go with a mossy color of green.

He said once it was placed on it in large areas, it just didn't look good.  Both Mike & Justin agreed that it looked awful.  So, they went w/ the dark forest green, and he said it looks MUCH better.

I think so too... even though I didn't think so the first time.


He also attached motion detector lights on the walls. 


Yep.. it definitely looks like a cabin now!!


As for what that S word is... I'll have to come back and update it when Mike tells me.  I can't believe it's a word that I keep forgetting over & over again all through this process!!!

Later this year, the porch will probably get started, then we'll add a top to the porch.  :)
