Our Cabin in the Wood
Those of you who have been faithful followers, (thank you, by the way), know that we have been having some problems with our little piece of heaven in our mid-40. Some kind of borers are having a picnic of our logs, even tho they have been treated repeatedly. Any suggestions? The little bugs look like hornets, the color of the ash borer, turquoise blue and black, with long stinger drills at their rears. I still have not identified them, and mistakenly gave the National Forestry my only culprit. After two years, we still have not heard back from them. Apparently, they do not know what it is either! Help! In the meantime
we need to re-think these nasty, killer stairs that have taken me out once already.
And tho, we love the evening glow of our ' little piece of heaven,' we are seriously thinking of making some changes. The west wall you see through the windows, we are thinking of bumping out and adding a bunk room. To the east, we want to bump out another wall for a master bedroom/bathroom/extended deck. What do you think?
Another traipse around the woods on the old-timer Bear Paws, and I will gladly start drafting some serious changes. Now, all I have to do, is to convince DearHeart that this is essential. The rest of the family agrees.
Even the grandloves. This draft was drawn by our grandson this past Nov. I see he has everyone working except Grandma. That works for me. I think he must be hoping for hot, home cooked meals throughout the process.
Now, the only things missing are, a mudroom, and the initiative. Anyone? Anyone? Any takers to convince Bill?
Thanks for stopping and
