Highlights of Visits Before Moving Onto the Homestead
Once installed, the windows made a huge difference, although we somewhat regret how quiet the cabin is now. Before, the double layer of visqueen acted like an amplifier, so we were very much in tune with what happened outside. We could easily hear whales blowing out front, and bird songs.
Improvements to the cabin competed with felling, hauling and splitting firewood, repairing sections of the trail, and washing clothes by hand every few days. It's idyllic, but you have to stay on top of everything that needs to be done.
We made plans for a new outhouse using the composting toilet. We intended it to be the first stages of a small complex that'll include a sauna and a larger deck than the current "veranda" where we ate a lot of our meals, watching whales and other wildlife. We have since decided on a different locatdion for that. The poor old log-round table rotted away, so we removed it.
