Thanks fellers, I tried to go up yesterday but there's still some heavy drifts. I didn't get a picture of the road that gives the scale but this scenery shot may give an idea. I got to about three mile from it then turned back. Did see some of my favorite neighbors down the trail though.

Made it to the cabin today. Drifts were deep and wet so the wench got a real work out. We took what I'm calling the new kitchen and screwed it to the wall. In a week or so I'll take the bunk beds up.

Yep, I know how to train them and pace the work. Setting the clock took me to the edge of my high tec knowledge.

Beautiful job, Kent.
I've enjoyed the progress report very much.

The calendar says this is the beginning of summer so I talked a buddy into going to the cabin to relax and maybe do some shooting. We had a fine time and I even cooked him breakfast. Summer is a bit different up there. I loved it.

Keep living the dream Kent.  You have a wonderful hideaway there. Don't be shy to post any pictures of future trips.

The current heat wave keeps me in the basement, but maybe a photo of an old cabin that gave me some understanding of how to do the roof would be of interest. This abandoned cabin is at least 100 years old on a ranch near by. Of the ones I looked at while trying to figure out how to make mine this was what I chose.
