We headed up to the cabin Saturday morning to work on getting some insulation in the walls. Last time we were up there the stove was able to keep it warm but if the fire died (which it did once during the night) it got cold quickly. We’re having friends up for New Years and thought it would be best if we made the place as cozy as possible.
Forrest and I rode two up on his sled most of the way up (mine is down for non-crash related repairs) until Sprocket was too tired to run after it anymore. SP and I had a nice final walk up to the cabin–it was a gorgeous day and not cold at all. We’d walk and then relax (and definitely had a cuddle party or two in the snow). Once we got to the cabin, Forrest had the fire going and the chill was out of the air.
We started in on our stack of insulation and got it all in place by the end of Saturday. I wasn’t sure how the non-faced insulation would be but it was super easy to work with, I’m really glad we chose to upgrade from R-13 to R-30 for everywhere! The only place left to insulate is the roof which we’ll leave until spring.
Sunday, we started in with sheeting on the walls. Unfortunately, we didn’t haul enough of it to finish everything up before the snow fell so we focused on the main seating area and our sleeping loft. The walls that are finished look awesome, even covered in just OSB…I can’t wait until we get around to putting pine tongue and groove on them.
