Today we began the deconstruction of an area inside Cooper Cabin so we can build the bathroom!

Daniel, Chris, and I removed all the siding from the wall in there, disassembled the electrical, took apart the framing, then removed all the nails and screws from everything. Busted. It. Out. Made great progress today. :D

Hopefully tomorrow we can get a support put in for the beam that goes across the roundwood wall back there - the original construction crew cut a bit too deep for the notch on the beam. It cracked and has been slowly separating from the leftover bit on top of the post. We're going to lift that beam, put in a support that attaches to that post, then build from there. Should be fun. ;)

I look forward to seeing how you build it! People come up with fascinating designs. Depending on how far away from the barrel + how high up in the mass the piping is, the top of the mass can get pretty dang hot. If you keep the pipes running low and pack it densely, sure, I don't think you'd have combustion issues either. There are lots of variables to look at.

Nine! I love that you see the beauty in something as simple as the color and texture of wood. I'll photograph the same stuff because I see the beauty in it again and again. When mom and I visited Glacier park 3 consecutive years, I took no less than about a dozen rolls of film each trip, repeating shots at the places we saw on all 3 trips.



Oh gosh, I can only imagine! I'm sure I'd take way too many photos on a trip like that. I haven't yet been to Glacier NP, but I very much want to go.

I had to zoom in to find your deer in the snow photo.



haha yeah, it was hiding on the hill up there.

Bonus!



My pesky hat fell over the camera at one point. It was getting way too hot out there and I think the camera was overheating. I may have to figure out a better place to put it that stays shaded throughout the day if I'm going to do a long time lapse like this again.

I went looking in the Cooper Cabin thread, and I'm wondering: is this the wall you took down to put in the bathroom?

is that the wall?


and maybe it's the right door here?


Seems like a really good spot to put the potty!

Yep, that's the wall we took down. We're going to rebuild it, but it'll be taller and have a storage space above it. The other side of the wall, that bigger room, will have bunk beds in it.
