I missed updating you all on the cabin last week! So sorry! I’m back though this week and have quite a few more updates after this one to share. Next week, is going to be my favorite post though – it’s all about the design plan! Demolition, installing flooring, walls, lights, etc. is all fine but the actual designing part is my favorite. Would you guys all agree or do you like the grunt work the best? If I’m completely honest, I’m probably better at the grunt work portion, or atleast I am initially. But, when I do finally find my groove with the design part… it’s just so much fun. So, be excited because it’s coming a week from today. =)

Today though, it’s all about Building Walls and Finishing the Ceiling. In a nutshell, once we took down the ceiling we had to decide what to do with the space. We eventually decided that we were going to keep the open feel of the space by not putting a ceiling back in. The problem with that was that the wall paneling (what we decided to go with) needed to be able to extend all the way up the roofline. Each of the four walls had issues with that. I’m going to do my best to explain what they were and how we fixed them… you know in case you have a one room cabin that you are renovating. =)

So, in the midst of tearing down the paneling, we were also working on extending the wall frames. As a result, you are seeing some of the old paneling in the next picture.
