Big Timber Lodge’s Travel Diary

Location: USA

MapOK I've been getting alot of comments regarding updates :-) Well it's hard to know where to begin --- Things are going along steadily, we have Mark Schneider working out here and he is a very hard working carpenter. Lee and Mark are working pretty much 7 / 12's. All three guest cabins are up and metal roofs on!! They are now inside of cabin #1 sheeting it and will be moving on to the other cabins and finishing them up in the next couple of days. We are waiting for plumbing supplies to arrive, we are having a really bad summer storm -- we actually broke some record yesterday for the amount of rain we received!! Not exactly the kind of record you want when you are trying to build!! As soon as the plumbing does arrive though we will be able to finish the bathrooms and get heat and water installed! Fortunately Lee did get the water-line from the house to the first cabin before the rain came. We have 12 guest coming the end of August so we are really pushing to get everything done ASAP. Dennis Roberts, our brother-in-law from WA. was here over this last weekend and he and I were able to get some paint on the fronts of the cabins and some trim work done. There is still alot of painting to do so if any of you have some free time ...... :-) Oh, and most importantly!! Iona is due to have our first grandchild "Samuel Ryan" on August 31st so I will be heading to Anchorage this weekend in anticipation of his arrival! If there is anyone out there that would like to take over the cooking for Lee and Mark let us know :-)
