One year after we purchased it, Shangri-Latza is finished.
There were many winter weeks that I traded my camera for a hammer and worked toward a total interior renovation of our cabin. I did everything but the kitchen installation and staining of the knotty pine walls and alder doors and trim (I hate staining).
All that remains is exterior paint (it’s going to be red/brown instead of sterile white), which will be done in the spring. I spent a lot of 2-3 construction binges here throughout the winter of ’14-’15 and it cost us a ton of money, but we wanted to do it all at once instead of in stages over the years. It was mostly done by May, but I finally got around to making these photos recently. We had loads of fun here this summer!
Here’s the reverse angle of the kitchen and dining area.
The “reading nook,” which is my favorite place to take a load off and watch the water.
One of three bedrooms.
One of our two full bathrooms.
And lastly, our four-season front porch, which has a great view of the lake and summer thunderstorms.
