Building in Winter

There have been quite a few storms that have passed through Colorado since 2020 began, and that has undoubtedly slowed down the work at our cabin. Our builder sent us a funny picture of “Why they don’t send Christmas Cards to the subdivison plow guys”. Apparently, the plows went through the roads in our area, but also managed to pile many feet of snow at the entrance to our driveway.

Here are some of the latest photos from the build. They have finished framing and are now working on getting the plumbing & electric in. We are trying to figure out how much of the finishing work we will be able to do ourselves now that we will be living in the area.

I’ve (Christine) volunteered to do as much of the flooring, interior paneling & trim work as possible. Since I recently learned how to do our basement floors & baseboards (thanks YouTube for showing me how to use a mitre saw!), I have been feeling pretty empowered to “DIY” those elements. Hopefully it will turn out ok!

So we want to know, if you’d be interested in staying at the cabin and simply paying a bit to cover cleaning & utilities costs, would you be interested? Let us know in the comments!
