My brothers and I bought a cabin in the Eastern Sierra between Gull Lake and Silver Lake. It is next door to my brother's house so it was a great opportunity to add more space to his house and create a family compound, so to speak. It is very old (it was built in the 40's probably and moved to the current location from a motel resort in the area in the 50's), very tiny, very rustic, but it has lots of potential. It has 2 small bedrooms, a tiny bath with a shower, and a tiny kitchen area, no oven, only burners. We won't starve, there is a fancy resort across the road with a restaurant! I love the fact that the cabin is available year round. It is just off Highway 158 which is plowed in the winter so we will be able to use it all year. We are currently working on it because everything needs work!
This is what the interior walls looked like after my brother took off the old paneling. These are old half logs, actual logs that are rounded on one side and flat on the other. This photo was taken after my brother filled in the open cracks between many of the logs! You could see daylight through them!
This is that same wall with the new paneling that is going up over the old half logs, quite a difference!
This is the flagstone we had installed that will be behind the gas stove. First thing we did was redo the heating for the cabin. Flooring and the new stove for heat should be in by mid July and we can start using it after that. I keep heading up there to check on the progress being made!
This is the view of Horsetail Falls from above the cabin. In the spring, there are several falls to watch as the snow melts.
A definite work in progress, but we are getting there!
