My Little Weeknight Adventure

My first post on this is going to be about my little and very quick trip up to see my wonderful hubby last night. I made him Chicken Alfredo Bubble Up, stuck it in the carrying case to keep it warm and set on my journey to Battle Lake where he is building a cabin. I haven't been up there for a few weeks so I was excited to see how the project was coming along.

After devouring the meal I brought (I think I should get some brownie points here don't you) we took a tour of the house. Wow. It's magnificent. There is a wall of windows in the family room that look out over the lake. In the family room there is also a magnificent fireplace made of smooth stones. It's gorgeous and I might have been jealous/drooled slightly. Someday...somewhere in my dreams I might have a house like this!

Another step" that has happened is that they built the stairs in the house. I'll let you know the last time I was there I "may" have almost got stuck coming down the ladder from the second floor. How embarrassing! My hubby at least got a few giggles over that one. I personally was trying not to freak out and thinking what on earth happens if I can't climb down this ladder. Good thing we didn't have to go there and I was able to get down. Impressive huh?

The siding on the side facing the lake is started also. There will be shakes on the top peak on the house. I personally love shakes. They are doing a two-tone siding and it switches to a lighter tan about half way up. I had my doubts when hubby was trying to explain this to me but it looks great. Good thing they know what they are doing because I sure don't. Henceforth why I am not an interior designer!

I can't wait to see the finished product on the house!
