Cabin Raising

We have more progress on our small cabin on a mountain in the woods that we are calling Rockwell. The rock columns were complete, all the flooring done, so it was time for the cabin raising.

We are 6 days in (yes, I have camped the whole time, no make-up or flat iron, I am looking marvelous).

Here is what we have so far.


Wall number 1 going up.

Wall number 2!
Wall number 3!

Wall number 4, woo hoo!

Let's get ready for a roof! Yes, it has rained 4 of the 6 days we have been here. But, that has not stopped the guys.
Man, 17 feet is HIGH.

My incredible husband putting up the beams he hewed himself from our land.

Looking good honey!



Yep, looking real good.

Hopefully we will have the roof on by tomorrow.

Our Rockwell dream is becoming a reality. A place to make memories with our
boys and to pass on to them to enjoy with their children.

Loving life,
The Park Wife

I was just thinking about you last night and wondering how it was going, what new progress there was, etc. I am just so impressed that you all are doing this yourself!!! Can't wait to see more.

Have a blessed (dry?) weekend!

Everything is looking great! I wish I could get up there and actually see it. Hopefully, i'll get some days off soon.
So, I'm just wondering what I would get if I came up with the winner for Olga's lingerie venture?

Oh, you must be so excited! The cabin is looking great. As we were spending the last week and a half camping in 4 of Minnesota's state parks, I thought about you living in a park, and now building a cabin on your own property. And yes, I am jealous!

Wow, what a woman! "Hey gang, let's just throw up a cabin this week. Nope, don't worry about me, I'll just camp out." I'm impressed and let me tell ya, it take plenty to impress this Ozarks farm chick. Heeeheehe!

Thanks for poppin' in with your sweet comment and hoppin' on for the ride. Sure hope ya'll enjoy it.

Have the best day filled with many blessings!!!
