Seems like not a lot happened this week, but the big thing was the concrete work for our next project was finished. The nice weather held into this week, we had highs in the 50s and for a couple days after this slab was poured, we actually had lows in the 40s. Very unusual for this time of year, but I'm not complaining. Here the slap is being finished:


On the other project, we are working on getting the skirting around the base of the building done. This will close in the building so that it can be used in the winter in the future. It was set up as a seasonal cabin, but with our improvements, the heaveir insulation in the roof and the insulated wall around the base, it should be able to be used year round.


The half log siding will go up from the top of the skirting there.
We also poured a small slab inside under the building for the heating and mechanical stuff to sit on:



We woke up to an inch or so of snow this morning. It started off as rain yesterday, but the temp dropped all day and it ended up being snow. I was very grateful for the mild weather up into this past week, but now I am OK with the idea of winter coming.
In mid November, 50 degrees is just weird. Although I can remember the first year I moved here, about 24 years ago, deer hunting in a T-shirt.
