GARDEN ROOM–CABIN

HERE IS WHERE WE START WITH DECK CONST. AND THE REDOING OF THE LOST LAKE in spring 2010

When we got this cabin in 1999, it came with a ramp to the double doors. It was at an approx. angle of 45 degrees! This was unsafe especially when the wood was wet. Things also rolled down the ramp that we set outside the doors. It was time to make it better!

We are deepening the Lost Lake and re-leveling the sides. They settled over time leaving the top part of the liner  exposed to sun in parts. As a result, a couple of stones on the side that fell in due to animals, made holes in places. It lasted 10 years, though.

Nothing is static in a garden!

CAMP REST-A-WHILE

PREVIOUS LOOK IN SUMMER AND FALL 2008

 Spring-Summer 2010-We haven’t made much progress in 2010 due to the heat, drought, and having to water the gardens so much. We do hope that fall 2010 will be an improvement...

The step down needs correction.

You can see the old ramp here.

At last! Construction begins and we can’t wait! But… we had rain, rain, and more rain in between getting from the start to the finish. Here are some pix...

FALL 2010
