Kysa, great suggestion to double check on zoning. I’ll be sure to do that.  What you’ve described might work for me. I’ll be watching your progress closely! 😊

Pretty cabin. Looks like our Morgan Steel cabin that. Still just takes up spacevhere. We never did convert it into house as hoped. Hope you have better luck with yours.

I was just thinking about this today, that maybe I could to some looking online for bathroom fixtures.  I will buy in person, but I might research on line.  It just needs to solid and we can sit and sleep in it.  But I am planning on electricity immediately, and plumbing sometime over the summer.  To eventually be a 3 season cabin.

Definitely invest in good quality bathroom fixtures so they hold up to kid use. You especially don't want a flimsy shower.

The first pumbing fixture.  This is a great idea, and will eliminate putting a sink in the bathroom.  This will simplify plumbing.  I will only need toilet and shower in the bathroom, and kitchen sink on the shared wall with the bathroom.  The simpler the better as long as it functions for me.

That is an awesome concept!  I've seen similar setups before for purposes of water conservation.  But also a space saver.

That's really cool! Great idea.  Cliff said he was thinking of something similar before he met me.  :)

I wish it were warm enough and the ground thawed that I could start prep work.  Sigh...still just hanging out at pinterest trying to get good ideas.

I do plan on a pallet fence for the front yard.  Right now I have electric fence across it, as I graze the yard.  It certainly does't look great, although my horses never challenge it.  I am trying to make it look a bit nicer.

I plan on a pallet fence.  I have lots of sources of pallets, and I have to collect new ones each year to replace the ones under my hay bales that I break.  But I will pick out the nice ones and make a fence.  The nice side will face the road.

have you ever had a pallet fence?  I read some reviews of those that did and they didn't seem to be great - rotted fast, broken easily, splinters, two posts for every 3 or 4 feet.   I might be missing the positives but I know there was a reason or reasons a friend of mine did not put one up.

positives...I can easily do it myself without my husbands help, and I have plenty of t-posts.

I have had pallets outdoors as part of my runs bale feeding system, and they seem to hold up a long time.

good you have some pallet experience... mine is limited to being under hay and even those I've moved onto plastic ones because they are so much lighter  :-)

I am watching big snowflakes coming down outside....but my cabin shell is done, and as soon as I can prep the gravel base, they will deliver.
ARGH!!!!  Real spring cannot come soon enough!
