Movin' On Up!

The weather up in Grand Marais was absolutely stunning on Labor Day Weekend. We watched the sun rise over Lake Superior every morning.... Ahhhh....


We explored our property and found some wonderful places to peek out at the views to the north and east, where Cascade River flows over a corner of our land.


We saw the first signs of autumn...

And progress is being made at Kathy and Val's New World. We now have a foundation and a well! Here are some recent photos from the adventure.

Some of the latest recycled timbers, which will be posts for floor one...



Our ridge beam for floor one, carved, wrapped and waiting installation...



We have got a well!! That means running water, kids!


The foundation is shaping up, with insulated concrete forms on the footings (see previous posts), some plumbing of the future, and a wrapping on the outside to keep out cold air.
The foundation is moving on up, with footings on bedrock, ICF's on footings, insulation and fill, and next will be the slab... may already be poured!

Our nieces, Marissa and Jessica, some of our very first visitors to our new cabin! They looking out over the future patio off our bedroom. Nice view, eh Jess?
