Log-style Living

We've certainly more than made up for the lack of snow in 2011/12.  West Michigan has been getting hit pretty hard in 2013.  Our bird feeder has a 'flat-top'!  Mom has kept an eye on it, and used it as a Snow Gage to determine the amount of snowfall in any given day.
Here's our Hen House out back - and note the nice layer of snow on the fence as well.  There has been a week or two that Mom and I elected to stay home instead of venturing out for groceries, our driveway is long and winds up hill - wicked slippery, and sometimes my little Jeep has gotten stuck.  Not a fun hike for either of us gals.
Here's Mr. Wonderful, pounding in a few nail heads before the carpeting was installed. 

And these 2 photos above were taken after the carpet was laid.  The view out the windows is spectacular - so glad Mr. Wonderful decided on 3 large windows instead of just 2.

We still have to hang pictures and hook up the rest of the electronics, but it's a far cry from how this all started in November - seems so long ago, yet not long at all.
 We have quite the collection of pictures and the memories to go along with them!
CHEERS to Mr. Wonderful, and to God who gave him all of his many talents!

It looks fantastic! I love it! I can't believe all of that snow you've been getting! We have barely gotten any snow this year. Just cold and dreary here this year. I'm sure everyone is happy that the house is back in order now. I'm no stranger to the construction game! lol

It looks very cozy and comfortable. Even the snow out the windows looks pretty, but only if you don't have to go anywhere :) Soon Spring will arrive and all that white will disappear.
