Well now it looks like this:
We kept the cabinets, painted them, and used new hardware. Can you believe what a transformation that makes? And the counter tops? It's not granite. Formica has come a long, long way. As you can see, it is a working kitchen, and this is about as clean as it gets.
Next, let's move over to the dining area and the laundry room being built. That window was added because there is a great view of a favorite peak of ours that can be seen through there.
We hung some curtains in front of the laundry/storage/utility area
because the laundry/storage/utility area looks like this:
How about the hot husband, er, bathroom?
And now (although there are aspects of the last picture I like far better than the new one *cat calls*):
If you have been noticing some unfinished aspects of the cabin, that is because there are some unfinished aspects about the cabin. It's still a work in progress.
This was our bedroom,
And now this is our bedroom. Only there is currently a bed in it. This picture is a few weeks old.

Do you want to know the most amazing part of this story? We didn't just get here by living in a fifth-wheel for eight months. There would be no way we would be living out our dreams on this little five-acre piece of earth without the tremendous gifts of encouragement and support by dear family and friends who stood by us and selflessly (and unexpectedly) invested into us financially and with hours of skilled labor. We so feel our Father's amazing, graceful love towards us through the outrageously wonderful people he has placed in our lives. This place is dedicated to His good pleasure. We welcome Him here. We open our hearts and homestead to His perfect plans.
