First...I've always been interested in salvage, vintage, basically...old stuff or used stuff. Even as a kid I was digging in the backyard for bottles and in the "junk" room trying to create things -- crazy kid I was. Anyway, when I meet my husband he was building a cabin in the woods. It was love at first sight (both the guy and the cabin). I joined in helping. The 700 square foot cabin butt up to a national forest--a magical place. It was powered by a wind turbine my then-boyfriend had put in the backyard. We spent our dates sanding old doors to uses as cabinetry, tiling, hammering...and once and a while we would take a break and read all day on the couch surrounded by vintage diamond paned windows or cross-country skiing. I miss that cabin, especially on beautiful days like today. It was a very special place. Incredibly romantic, a wonderful place to start our relationship. The memories will always be there and it was just the beginning of designing with salvage and our family's journey.
|Look at that handsome guy working away! He misses the old Land Rover as well.|
|Check out the vintage windows and the beams made from trees from the land.|
|Almost done. The cabinet doors are made from old doors cut in half, vintage sink and old windows. I still have that antique wood bowl, it now sits in our entrance way of our new home.|
