The Craft Cabin Gift, Part 2


As I said in Part 1, I started mentally making all sorts of plans for how I would decorate the cabin, and had shown Ed the paint colors I liked, flooring I liked, etc. Then I left for my 4-day trip to Aiken, SC.

That Sunday when I arrived back home Ed met me at the front door.  He immediately walked me inside to the kitchen, BLINDFOLDED me, and then lead me out onto the deck.  He walked me to the far end of the deck and told me to take off my blindfold and turn around…

Now, I have to admit that I FULLY expected to see the cabin painted in the colors I had shown Ed the week before, but what I saw was SO much better.


Here it is…

He raised it up and made it part of the deck!  It took a few seconds for it to sink in, but when it did I exclaimed “Oh my GOD!  HOW COOL!”

So, we not only gained a few extra feet of deck, but now I have easy access from the house.
To give you an idea of what a difference it makes, here are a couple of “before” photos:

Raising it up makes it seem SO cozy and special, like it’s now part of the house, yet still separate.  For the following few days I kept looking at it through the kitchen door in disbelief.  Ed had given me the best gift ever — a special place all my own to create in.

Now for Part 3, where I’ll show you the progress Ed has been making with the inside of the cabin.
