Welcome to my little ol' blog. I'll be upfront about it: I don't blog very often any more. If you found your way here because you read my book "Trailer Life," have a gander! But it's easier to keep up with me on Instagram or on my Facebook page. I have this long, drawn out theory on why I'm a terrible blogger, but that is a story for another day. Enjoy the ramblings of my life from the last 8 years or so.

Custom Window Trim

The window trim is 98% finished. It's all in, it's been sanded, and now is waiting for some stain and oil. These back windows were done in 6x6 douglas fir beams. They are very heavy. The little shelf under the skinny window was moved for each new trimmed out window. It's job was to help hold the trim in place while the screws were put in.
A corner detail... the windows have been painted and are awaiting installation. The front windows are trimmed in 4x6 beams. After the windows are in, the rigid foam insulation will be next, both on the outside of the house, and in the cathedral ceilings. Which reminds me, I need to call the county about a question. Ryan went back to work this week, and wouldn't you know that the first night back he didn't get home until 4:30 in the morning? Rough! That kind of *just a little* ruins the morning "work on the house" time. We will keep plugging along!


  1. I am getting so excited for you! I can't wait to see it all finished! Party at Karries!!

  2. Party? At my house? YOU BETCHA! And everyone will be invited! (Except hardened criminals, of course!) How nice will it be to be able to have company over? With a place to sit, a cup for them to drink from, and a real flushing toilet?

    It'll be a party that lasts about six months...
