The Cabin

A little over a year ago Josh and his family moved the 100 year old grain shack.  These next pictures are the progress that has been made.

After almost a year it is basically done! Josh surprised me. When I to Alabama Josh would spend hours after work working on the "love shack" (cabin).  I came back he finished the floor, put in the carpet, put the counter top on, moved our bed in, and put the rope up between the ceiling and wall. He was BUSY got to love him for it! So here is the finished product.  At this point we were moving everything out of here onto the trailer so we could move to eastern Montana.  So there is not much up for decorations. 
The "bedroom" 

Our door that is really thick  
The kitchen
Concert countertop  
The pantry and bathroom 
Bathroom door cute I know!!
Living room area 
 The bathroom. (This is an older picture, but I guess I did not take a finished picture. All that is different is the blue tape is gone.)

So that is it! We loved working on it together, and we were sad to leave it behind.  Josh wishes we could have put a billion balloons on it and took it here with us.  (Up the movie).  But we like our (much bigger) 70s trailer too.

What has been going on in the past 9 months

On November 20, 2011, Bethany and Josh were married for all time and eternity.  Since then we have moved four times.  The frist in Rexburg into our new apt together.  Then we moved into a camper down by the river in Caldwell, ID.  I did my student teaching there at Vallivue High School.  We were there for a little over 2 months.  While we were there Josh went to Stevensville 2 1/2 weeks earlier than me to go work.  We were in Stevensville the summer.  We worked on the cabin until I left for Alabama for 2 weeks.  Josh suprised me by finishing the cabin while I was gone.  So we moved out of his room in his parents house into our own place, the love shack.  We were only there for about 3 weeks and we had to pack up our things and move to east Montana.  We are on an adventure in the smallest town in Montana with only 26 people.  Josh got an ag teaching job and he is also the girls head basketball coach.  So our fourth and final move in the past 10 months of being married is Ismay, Montana.
