Well, I'm just going to throw two blog posts together back to back to catch you guys up on everything that's been happening out at the cabin. The biggest adventure this time around is the spiral stairs. I ordered a stair kit from up north, which came to me in a few different pieces. When the kit arrived, I had loaded it all up on my trailer & hauled it down to the cabin & just set it out front. Then several mornings later I woke up to monsoon rains, and I shot straight up out of bed & started thinking about the metal rusting, which only had a coat of primer on it. I decided then that I wanted to spray a couple of coats of black paint on it. A friend was gracious enough to let me borrow his yard to do the painting. So I hauled it all over to his place & we began. Jamey & Trey did most of the painting & did a great job installing it all too! Once it was all put together, Jamey welded a few of the joints together & wallah!

So along with the spiral stairs, I ordered a rolling ladder from the same company. I wanted to utilize the space in the loft above the kitchen, so put in some cabinets to store books & dishes & whatever else. It adds a nice feel to the place.

Well, I did decide to put some wooden treads on the stairs & on the ladder as well. I went to my guy at the local mill & he gave me a bunch of free fir, so that's what we used! It turned out rather nice.
