Cabin Bathroom features

For the past several months, working on the cabin has consumed our lives. But it has been well worth it. We’ve had some great friends and family that have helped us out during some of the process and we can’t express our appreciation enough. Life in the cabin has already proven to be much easier and enjoyable so far. We still have some work to do on it, but for now we’re so very thankful to be in here, and just before winter hit. I believe the happiest of us is Sampson. He has room to move, isn’t in the way and it’s nice and cozy in here. Since he is the most important part of our lives, it makes us happy to see him so content. God truly blessed us with a wonderful dog.

 Sampson all bundled up staying warm. He’s not spoiled at all!

We are so proud of all the work we’ve  put into it, especially the bathroom. We wanted to make sure that even though our cabin was small, that we had special features. And that anyone who visited, knew that woodworkers lived here. The bathroom has some of our favorite features so far. Of course we’re not done yet. So who knows what the rest of the cabin will look like when we finish. We opted to go with all wood countertops. And mesquite was the wood of choice. Not only because we had some slabs on hand, but because it is such a gorgeous wood. It was a big job filling in all the cracks and voids with epoxy, but well worth it. We inlaid turquoise into the bathroom counter. Scott carved a sink out of a cherry log, leaving the natural edge. It turned out beautiful and really adds to the bathroom. Several coats of a marine finish were applied so it would stand up to all the water usage. We decided to keep a mesquite and african purple heart mirror that we had made a while ago. And it ties in nicely with everything in the bathroom. We both fell in love with the river rock look for a shower and therefore decided to do it for ours. It was easy going up, but the job of having to wipe each and every rock proved to be a challenge. Not only was it very time-consuming, but your fingers get very sore after a while. But after seeing everything come together, it was well worth it. We still have to make the cabinet doors throughout, but we’ll get to it soon. We collected other artists work over the past few years to incorporate into our cabin and we finally get to show them off. We had an iron artist create our towel rods and hooks. They have little moose and elk heads on them and are so cute. Those along with some wall art and cabin rugs, round out the cabin look of the  bathroom.

We also incorporated other artists work in the other parts of the cabin. We have some tile to put up for our kitchen backsplash soon, drawer pulls and other artwork placed all over. Below is a picture of our kitchen countertop. This was a bookmatched slab of mesquite that spans  14ft. It has some incredible figure and I hate covering it up, so the counter has as little amount of stuff placed on it as possible. For both the kitchen and bathroom counters we left the natural edge, only removing the bark and lightly sanding the edge to bring out the yellow sap wood. We applied a marine finish to ensure that they could stand all the water and abuse.

We are so happy to finally be in our little cabin and can’t wait to start the next project and add more special features.
