We haven't even taken possession of the cabin yet and I'm not sure where this will go. I don't even know if there is a ledge on the bathroom sink but I'm sure I'll find somewhere for it to go. I have some old handles like the one shown here so maybe I'll incorporate them in some way. I'm not sure what I plan to use for a base. I'm inclined to use wood but I don't think that would stand up to water and soap so I may have to give that some thought. Maybe I can use a wooden frame and some mesh for the bottom. I'll be sure to post my ideas here so you can take a look. If you have any ideas I'd love to hear them.

As you can imagine I have lots of projects in mind. I'm not sure how much I can get started over the winter as I'm not sure I'll be back to take measurements and such. We don't want to intrude on the current owners. The owner apparently really loves the place but is getting a bit older and his health isn't as good as it used to be and his family have been after him to sell. He wanted it to go to owners who wold take care of it. My husband and I are very excited at this new prospect. I will admit working without electricity and relying on solar power and generators do intimidate me but I do find it intriguing. There is also a very nice garage that I intend to use as a workshop. The ideas for things I can make with reclaimed wood and wood for the forest of 215 acres that we will soon own are flowing in my head. I'll keep you posted and try to take lots of pictures along the way.
