Our house today – still in progress, but we love it! 🙂
Our big project this month has been the kitchen.
We bought a new fridge and a used range.
Installed a kitchen window.
Next we raised (on 2x4s for added height) and installed the new cabinets.
Lastly, we installed our new sink. (First time I’ve had hot running water in the kitchen in five years!)
Time to move all the food and dishes!
It’s been getting a little cold around here…
So we tackled the woodstove, hearth, and chimney.
First, we had to move the several-hundred-pound hearth form the little yurt. Turns out Paul glued it to the floor, so he had to remove the floor with the hearth.
Then we had to move it and place it into the new yurt.
Next, Paul hooked up the new chimney.
And finally, we moved the woodstove with help from John and Linda and some tool borrowing from Ted and Myrt.
We rolled it on skateboards out of the little yurt and into the tractor bucket.
Then we drove it over to the new yurt where I cleaned it up.
Now it’s nice and toasty inside!
Wow, it’s been a long time since we’ve posted! I’ll try to do some catching up this week.
Paul and I are up in the little open loft, Kari is in her room. (She’s even had a sleepover in there.)
Once we were all sleeping in the new yurt, we decided to tackle the bathroom…
First, I textured and painted.
Paul installed the water heater. And we did the tub, window, and sink. I lifted the sink onto a little box as it was too low.
