Goodbye, Little Shed

Our shed demo project has moved right along this last month or so. The site is now completely cleared, and ready for the new Tiny Timberframe Studio! In case you missed the first few shots from this previous post, here is the whole sequence of demo images...(read more)

Crustless Quiche

Here's a favorite low-carb and grain-free quiche/egg bake recipe that we're enjoying quite often these days, paired with fresh-picked salad greens, and cherry tomatoes when we have them. So good, and so easy!

Demo and More News!

Happy Summer friends! We took advantage of a stretch of stunning days here over the last couple of weeks to get a whole bunch of things done, including making some big progress on demo-ing/recycling the little shed...

Summer Garden

This informal, west-facing garden gets the full benefit of these longer late spring/early summer days.

A Last Look – and New Plans!

A farewell shot of this rough little shed that sits just a few feet from our cabin.... and some big news!

Redbud!

Spring has most definitely sprung here at our cabin!

New Life for an Old Planter

It's finally gardening season here at the cabin! Here's a great springtime project documented here last spring... Don't have room for a traditional garden? Want to conserve water? Away from home often? Try a sub-irrigated planter! Sub irrigated planters have a water reservoir beneath the soil level that is fed from the top, using a …

In like a Lion…

Whew! What a night. Another Nor'easter ripped through here overnight, complete with thundersnow! The snow was wet and heavy, and we lost a number of trees and branches. Luckily only one very small tree on our little cabin. It is times like these that I am especially happy to be sheltered under a timberframe! We're …

Sugar Shack

Spring is coming! It's maple sugaring season here in New England. I captured this Sugar Shack image in Plainfield, Vermont. Sugaring sure takes a lot of firewood!

Throwback

Cabin life in winter finds us indoors more often, keeping cozy and working on various indoor projects. The other day, as outdoor temperatures hovered in dangerous sub-zero territory, I was happily parked near the wood stove, flipping through some old photographs for a Genealogy project that I work on here and there as time allows, …

Happy New Year!

Pretty lights here on this last evening of 2017. Best wishes to all for a happy, healthy and cabin-filled 2018!

Winter has arrived

An ice storm, followed by artic temperatures has encased everything in ice! It is (literally) brilliant when the sun shines - everything just sparkles! I keep running out to take pictures and then running right back in again to warm up by the woodstove. Very real chance of frostbite in very short order out there! …

Silent Night

"I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness because it shows me the stars." ~Og Mandino Happy holidays from us to you! Thank you so much for joining us here. Looking forward to another year of cabin life!

Broccoli Cheddar Bacon Soup

Winter is here at our cabin—we've got snow in the forecast and the temps are dropping rapidly. Time to make a big pot of hearty Broccoli Cheddar Bacon soup...

How sweet it is!

Wood’s in!

We've been working hard this last month or so cutting, splitting, hauling and stacking seasoned wood from around the property for our winter heat. The old saying really is true: Heating with wood warms you twice (and by my estimation, 5 times for us in this case)! When you depend on a trusty woodstove to …
