God, this must be boring crap for some people, but who cares! This blog is all about me really. :)
Ok, these pictures are totally random since I am not capable of cutting/pasting here, so beware of unusual inconsistency on this blog. (Ha)
Internetland - meet my new window!
This baby is a vintage 5x5 model. Approximately 20+ years old, it is the popular "double-paned" window. Not quite good enough or thick enough to be triple-paned, plus I don't want to spoil myself with leakproof windows do I? Note the fine cracked white paint peeling over top of the equally hideous BLACK paint below.
Oh, there are many times when I wish for new vinyl windows. But luckily, they are few and far between. Or is that "far and few between?"
At any rate! My building pad!
Kuna is inspecting it "Hmmm, yes, yes, this will do just fine. A bit more level on the left and I will approve. BTW - where is MY cabin?!?! This tent stuff is gettin' old."
I always knew he was useful for SOMETHING!
Speaking of useful - here is the dog who is very useful in destroying everything he gets his big fat mouth on.
Ripper's new tactic: pushing his head through the gate as faaaaar as he can, so he can reach things to chew on. The victims so far: a shovel, a dog food bag, Ray's chainsaw (the handle only), the shovel, a piece of plywood and a bucket. I am slowly onto him, and almost always remember to keep things far away.
The tent! Note Gabe in the corner, close to the stove and on his pillow. All the important things are there: bed, dog blankets, couch, stove, beer.
The building spot from the other side - looking towards giant blue tent and dogyard.
Oop! Windows again. Pre-unloading, lookit 'em all!!!!
Ooh, a window that opens! I got three of them! Or no, FIVE!!!
I am window-obsessed now. I can't go anywhere or into anyone's home without grilling them about their windows. And here I really never gave windows a second thought before. Could've cared less about them really. No wonder no one invites me anywhere anymore.
My new "suburban door" as Laura called it. I think it would make a great bathroom door! Or, even better, an outhouse door! Of course, the white has to go. I have an aversion to white things I think. Probably because I know they will not stay white long with my (and the dogs) track record.
Kuna making sure I'm doing a good enough job on the paint scraping - check out the window on the left, the inside is quite lovely.
Ugh! Black? Seriously?? Was this for Marilyn Manson's bedroom?
Hey, whattaya know, more windows on a trailer.
And my favourite - the gang coming running back from their frolicking in the meadow.
Stay tuned, because I will have something even MORE exciting than windows in my next post... And seriously, it's not "flooring" or "cabinets" or other equally exciting housey things - in fact, it's not even cabin-related...hmmm... what could it be?!?!
