So as I mentioned in a previous post, Dan and I are in a temporary living situation. We are living in what I affectionately call “The Cabin”, which is actually just a 700 SF house on a large property. The owners have 4 houses on this property, 3 which they rent out, and one that they live in. One of the houses is a super cute cabin with two fire places that I wish we were renting, but it’s probably better we’re not, because now we will be 1000x more grateful once we move into our real house.
It’s kind of fun living out in the country. There are 3 horses on the property, the owners have a huge garden and routinely give us fresh vegetables, and really, I can’t get over the scenery out here. The cabin isn’t bad, but it’s not great. It’s small and cramped, and we have all of our wedding/bridal shower gifts (thank you friends!!) stored in the spare bedroom, which is being blocked by Dan’s mountain bike. The bathroom is cramped as the kitty box is in there, and somehow dead fruit flies keep showing up on the counter. All of our stuff is in storage, so we’re using what they have here, which I have to say, is not that bad. Le Creuset everything? I’m ok with that. The water is gross though. We’re on well, and there’s not filter or softner, so it smells like sulfur. We’ve been buying bottled water (which kills the environmentally conscious in us, but at least we can take it to recycling) to drink, and for awhile I was rinsing with it. I don’t know if I’m getting used to it, but it’s not that bad so I can rinse with it. I still don’t drink it and we don’t give it to the animals.
Here are some photos of our current living situation. Please ignore the mess, we have too much stuff for such a small place.
