As the sign explains this little cabin was originally from Randolph county in North Carolina.
My dad bought it and put it back together on his property in the 1970's.
He went all over the countryside and collected big rocks for the foundation
and the chimney.
The next two pictures shows him in the process of building the chimney.
As you can see in this one it's before a kitchen was added.
Following are some pictures of it all finished.
This was after a kitchen was added.
Through the years we use to have lots of cook outs.
And a lot of porch sitting.
We use to even sell our homemade crafts out of it.
Then over the years it kind of became a place where a lot of stuff was stored.
Well my dad has been slowly trying to move stuff out.
He wants to get it where he can come sit by the fire
and make it seem more like a living room again.
He's 91 years old and I think if that's what he wants to do
so be it.
I'm in the process of helping him.
We are slowly getting things organized and also brighten up a little.
Here are some pictures of what it's looking like
before the painting and organizing starts.
This is the living room looking at the front door.
This is the opposite side looking at the door leading into the kitchen.
This is a shot looking at the fireplace.
As you can see, some of the logs were painted before he got the cabin.
This is the opposite side from the fireplace.
You can see the ladder leading up to the upstairs.
Here we are in the kitchen.
As you can see it needs a lot of work.
Although I'm not going to do anything upstairs any time soon
I still wanted you to see the space.
This is the fireplace side.
And the opposite side with the ladder.
So lets get started on an update.
This is a little peek at the living room with a little painting done.
It has already brightened it up.
I know I know a lot of you are probably saying
Why are you painting those logs.
Well, not all will be painted, but what is,
has already started to light up the room.
It will look better.
Here's a pic of the nice brown front door.
It's getting a make over too.
Please stay tuned for part 2 and probably 3
of the cabin update.
It's going to look great!
He who seeks good finds good will...
