Cold, Cold, Cold day projects

While the Minneapolis area received almost two feet of snow we got cold temps.  The island was getting down to -25, and was not seeing positive numbers throughout the day.   At times like this we work inside.  This was a great excuse to lay down new floors in Loon's Nest (upstairs of the Lodge).  We put down bamboo which is very hard, durable and sustainable.  Kirby is not a fan, he finds it hard to get traction, so he is spending more time in his bed than usual.  Warmer temps are around the corner and we (including Kirby) will get back outside soon.

Winter Projects

With the weather getting colder we find ourselves taking on projects that keep us indoors.  Currently we are cleaning up and restoring all of the classic signs that indicate cabin names.  Each of the signs were routed by Hod Ludlow or Mark Ludlow at the finish of the cabin.  It might be easier and cheaper to buy or make modern ones but we insist on keeping our historic pieces.
