I feel like I am always saying 'hello again' after a bit of disappearance from my blog, but sometimes life just gets in the way of blogging. Hopefully you forgive me. Anyway, can you believe we are already in the third week in March?! Time is flying, I just hope it doesn't end up putting me behind on things.
Now as for the reason for my slight Houdini act, a reason that I feel is completely justifiable, we are once again up on the mountain working on the house. As many of you know Will and I have been building a house on a mountain in an abandoned apple orchard in WV for almost three years now, and when I say building I mean my formerly little dainty hands are now roughed up like the best of them. Because we are building it ourselves (with the help of Will's parents who build houses for a living) it has taken a very, very, VERY long time to get where we are, which is pretty darn far if you ask me! But we still have a long way to go, so because it has taken us this long to get here we have decided that we will move up here now, finished house be damned! Wow that sounded a lot more dramatic than I meant it.
So for the past week we have been converting our little (and when I say little I mean little like 150 Sq.Ft) temporary cabin into a much nicer little cottage, at least on the inside. And even though the cabin is super tiny and usually felt very camp-like because it was so unfinished, it now feels like a little home. It's really funny how just drywall, a coat of paint, and the warm weather can make not having normal house amenities, like running water, not feel like such a big deal. Granted I'm sure I will have some days complaining about not having enough water and having to drive down the mountain to fill up the water tank, but who doesn't have those kinds of days, hehe!
|To really help you understand the littleness I am talking about :)|
|The cabin was insulated but we never put up the dry wall, thinking we wouldn't really be using it for too long. Boy were we wrong, hehe.|
|After we put up all the drywall we had to sand and we pretty much looked like we went rolling around in a pile of ash. Will's pants were actually black before we started!|
|We almost got the whole place painted with only one gallon of pant, but we ran out a couple of minutes after this picture was taken.|
Hope everyone is having a wonderful week!
