Take a Look Inside the Cabin

Take a Look Inside the Cabin
Now that it has stopped raining, the cabin doesn’t look that stuck.

The cabin is stuck in the mud in front of the foundation. Now that the rain has stopped, it doesn’t look nearly as bad. A guy from a crane company is coming on Monday to take a look at the situation. The crane is scheduled for Wednesday, but it is supposed to rain. I have visions of a crane sinking into the mud in our yard. We’ll see what they decide.

In the meantime, we got a chance to see inside the cabin. We did a Pre-delivery Inspection, but I forgot to take photos of some things.

Materials needed to finish the cabin are inside.

The cabin was shipped with materials to finish the cabin inside. They were all stacked on foam packing material so they wouldn’t bang up the inside of the cabin.

The ceiling fans are tied so they don’t swing around.

The fans were tied so they didn’t swing around. I wasn’t even thinking about this when they were tilting the cabin side to side and then tilted it way up to slide it off the trailer.

The fans are tied to the window latches so they don’t swing around.

If the fan hadn’t been tied, it would have been banging against the ceiling.

The kitchen cabinets doors and drawers are taped closed with blue tape.

All of the kitchen and bathroom cabinet doors and drawers were taped closed.

The cabinet doors are taped closed so they won’t flap around while the cabin is being delivered and set up.

They taped them with blue tape. Blue tape isn’t as sticky as other tape, so you can pull it off without damaging the surface.  (If you leave blue tape on for a very long time or if it gets really hot, it will pull off paint. Good to know.)

We put the ladder up to see inside the loft.

We put up the ladder to take a look up into the loft.

The loft

I can sit in the loft without bumping my head. But I am short. If I were sitting on a mattress, I would for sure bump my head.

The loft

Even with no lights on, the loft is not at all dark because of the window in the hall.

The light switch is still easy to get to even when the ladder is in place.

When the ladder is stored on the hooks by the bedroom door, the light switch is still easy to reach.

Inside the bathroom.

I got a bill for $3,225.00 from the City of Hendersonville, so it looks like they have approved our water and sewer line taps.

Tomorrow we will find out more about the crane.

The cabin is from Westwood Cabins. You can see more photos and floor plans at www.westwoodcabins.com and www.facebook.com/westwoodcabins.
