Do I jinx myself by posting this??!? Actually, I feel a little like Nichole Heady when she posted her ten acre plot, lol! We don't close until Decmeber 14, but as far as we can see, there is no reason that won't happpen. Maybe a foot or two of snow, but not much else!
Looking for a cabin in the White Mountains has taken a bit of time over the past 4 months, but here is our decision! It's a cute little barn, with knotty pine inside, just like a cabin should be. 1.12 acres. one property away from a lake- Conway Lake- and close to Storyland, and shopping, and oh yes, the Mountains to hike in. I keep forgetting that is the point, lol!
You have to visualize a screened in porch off of the sliders; that will be the first project- well, after a well, anyway... turns out the cabin shared a well with another cabin, and that cabin owner doesn't want to share any more. Lol, that's understandable, but when we were there this week we realized the electricity pumping his water comes from our cabin!! lol, guess that is the first project!!
Pretty small inside, a thought for a kitchen, but a real bathroom with a tub. Carpeted, which I am not happy about, but the DIMBND man (that's Do It Myself But Never Does) says he will take up the carpet and put down a floor. We'll see. Otherwise I will keep watching the dump for a carpet sweeper thing. That hole in the floor goes down to the crawl space, it was just open so we could go down.
Upstairs are two bedrooms, we'll put as many beds as we can fit up there, I am hopeing to sleep 8 at least.
Wish us luck! After we close on December 14, we are going to go sleep in it overnight- forgot to say it has a woodstove for heat. That's my version of winter camping, lol- in front of a stove )not a campfire), under a roof (not a tent), with foam pads (on carpeting)!!! And an electric coffeemaker in the morning- how perfect is that?!?
