Now that you mention it, that sounds familiar. I think I looked them up initially when I planted the seeds, but couldn't remember what their story was. Thank you for the reminder! 🙏🏻
Good day so far. Chris got the slats on the bed finished and ready for attachment. I cleaned up the rails a bit more with my hatchet and draw knife. It looks good! Reorganized the cabin and cleaned some stuff up a bit better in preparation for moving in.
I finally got ahold of someone with a mattress, so we went up to Thompson Falls this afternoon to pick it up. It's super cozy and is thick, so we can't even feel the lumpiness of the slats. We put a couple blankets down on the slats anyways to both protect the mattress from the rough surfaces and fill in the waves a bit. Probably no need on that second thing. This mattress is a nice Tempurpedic that should work just fine for us. Now we just need a step ladder to get onto the bed.. 🤔😂
Took apart the shelf at the head of the bed. Used the wood to make new shelves on the wall. Chris made a temporary step stool for us to get into bed. Kittens are unsure what the heck is going on, but they've been helping build with us today. Sandmin even provided some quality control, as seen below. My driver batteries died, and I ran out of wood to make more shelves. Maybe I'll go do some gardening after the kiddos stop napping on our legs.
Got the sink and toilet enclosure frame installed in Cooper Cabin while Kyle worked on the bathroom door frame. Woohoo, progress!
Had to cut one of the legs off Erica's beautiful sink cabinet. 😭 I ended up screwing the cabinet to the wall stud, so legs are extra. 😂
The door on the enclosure is giving me fits, so I struggled with that a bit this afternoon. Hopefully I'll get that squared away so I can move on to attaching the top boards and getting those finished up. Slowly but surely.
Kyle and I worked on Cooper Cabin bathroom today. I got the enclosure door swinging freely, the top boards on, and everything snug as a bug. Kyle got the door put in place and ready for final adjustments. 🚪😎😁
After lunch he and I added some reflectors to the lights in the shop, and wired in stone new lights to help illuminate the classroom better. Took some doing, but it got done.
After that, prepped for Taco Tuesday, then we set Judy to watering the hugels in Arrakis. Full day. I'm ready to go lie down.
