In January I shared a post about lumber jacking on our new property. Well, we're still at it. The paperwork  is almost done and we hope to be breaking ground in a couple weeks. I wanted to show you some pictures of what it looks like in spring.

This is where our house will go, hopefully, in the not too distant future. It's so pretty.

And see this tree?

The Engineer cut it down, but then I de-limbed it, using both and axe and a chainsaw. Not at the same time, I'm not that talented, then I cut it into logs. All by myself. I'm quite proud of it.

We took many of the logs we'd cut and built a nice log shed.

This only shows it half done but was the only picture I could find.  It's a full shed now, with a roof, and stores a few things for us.  Also, all the snow is gone. For now.

In addition to chopping logs and paperwork, we've also been working on mowing down the 'grass' and creating a trail down the hill to the lower part of our property.

It's been a lot of fun and I can't wait to live up there full time.


  1. Looks like a peaceful environment. I'm envious of you!

  2. That's what my husband and sons have been doing all week, getting wood. Where is summer!!!

    Congratulations, Sara. You'll be living there in no time.

  3. Gorgeous property. How much longer till work actually starts on your house?

    1. It should have been two months ago. I don't really know how much longer they're going to drag this out.

  4. Ooh, that all sounds like great fun. Glad you're sharing the adventure with us!

  5. That's a nice looking shed! It must've taken a lot of work to get to that point!

  6. This looks like a very exciting project. The surroundings look so peaceful and serene. The log shed was a great way to rescue the cut down trees, and will really come in handy when you're all settled in and wanting to get warm and cozy in front of the fire. You'd be surprised at how quickly new homes are built, no worries, you'll be walking in your new front door before you know it!

  7. Needed to compose you a very little word to thank you yet again regarding the nice suggestions you’ve contributed here.
