Camp house

Little Cabin in the Woods

What have we gotten ourselves into now? Well, it is something that has been in the works for a while will be ours the first of April.  We are going to have a little 720 square foot of one large interior space cabin plus a bathroom. It will be for hunting and a getaway in deep far east Texas. It is located on almost 100 acres of piney woods with a clear, sandy bottomed creek, a pond under construction, cut trails, and rolling hills.

The cabin is solid and functional, it just isn’t very cute on the inside.  Yet.  All of the pictures below are of the house when occupied by tenants.

There is work to do in the kitchen.  Lots of work.

Something doesn’t seem safe about this picture.

When we visited, the one main room open space of the cabin was a mishmash of stuff. The living space is a jumble of assorted furniture items.  The fridge in the main room when there is already one in the kitchen…No idea.

The bunk beds are built of two by fours and are attached to the walls.  They are staying although we plan on reorganizing them.

I am not sure why the fun noodles are on the ladders.  Hmmm.

The bathroom will be pretty quick to get fixed up.  Someone did a great job on the shower and the vanity is fine.  It all just needs finishing.

The bathroom has a separate space for the toilet with a door, but it needs a little organization of the space, and better storage solutions.

There is no well here so water is pumped into a tank for use and there is a rainwater collection system completely around the house that we will be revamping a little bit to make it more functional.

The exterior has a great porch,

Oh that porch.  Once it is cleared of miscellaneous office furniture and debris we are going to have a great outdoor space.

Office furniture may not be my choice for furniture, but I do like the swing at the end and the screen door.

The carport…

Well, lets just say that an upgrade is planned for it.   It will be a great place to park four wheelers and provide cover for the grill when we are coooking outside.

I will bet that more than one of you are seeing this and thinking we have lost our minds.  It is hard to look past the mess and clutter but this will be a great place to hunt and disconnect.  We are planning on sharing the space with our friends.

We are planning on getting started in April.

My buddy, The Social Planner and I have plans for this place and you are going to be along for the ride.  The men who are excited for a place to hang out and hunt, and we ladies who just want it to be cute and clean. We and our kids are going to be busy for a bit getting it ready but it is going to be a great place.

I can’t wait to show you what The Social Planner and I have collected, mostly right out of our own homes, for the place.

Welcome to the deer camp.

Thanks for following along and feel free to offer suggestions.
