Additionally we have a name for our property (Malcolm’s Rise), a builder, a set of drawings of our cabin-to-be (will share when we get the final version) and a general idea of when the building will start. We also have the beginnings of what will be a massive woodpile:
It was good to get back up there and finish up the clearing of the build site this weekend – I’ve missed it since our December burn, though we couldn’t even see much of the land on that trip, it was so frozen. I expect we’ll be here one or two weekends a month for the foreseeable future. Next trip will be focused on finishing the outhouse (still needs a seat, a door, steps, a stain job and some wire around the bottom).
