Down on the farm....
well the recipe for the chinking of the cabin didn't turn out as we all had hoped.. (me most of all since i'm the one doing it! LOL!) well, i guess i should say it didn't harden up to my preference.. i just thought it felt like hard dirt.. (go figure..seeing that it was made up of dirt, salt and lime.. lol)
i found another recipe from a log home restoration book and took out the old stuff since it was crumbling and cracking , cleaned everything off and started over with the new recipe.. and i am happy to say its looking great! and hardening up really nicely too! so that is really good news! I took a picture last weekend to show you but it was dark by the time i finished working so it didnt turn out well. so i will get one on saturday when i am out there again.
while i was working outside on the log chinking,... my SIL (the lady with the red hair in the photo) had some of the members of her church come out and help to install the boards for the ceiling and some of the walls.
We got the boards from another structure on the property that was falling in so we carefully removed them, planed and sanded them, stained them and put them back up again. they really look great, (they are a little dusty from all the work right now though) MIL is really thrilled about how everything is coming together and we are hoping that they will be able to move from the fifth wheel camper they are staying in now to the 'cabin' before the snow comes.
So pray for that! :-)
