I didn’t know when I met Mike that he also came with a Canadian cabin! But I’ve really fallen in love with it and we were lucky enough to escape to Ontario earlier in the month to get some fishing in and also to do a little bit of work on the place.
Mike’s mom and step-dad have been an enormous help in doing all kinds of projects on the place!
Above is the new bunk house. It’s a completely new structure and will be really nice when guests come to stay!
The new outhouse is a very welcome addition!!
Last time Mike was up with his mom and step-dad they were able to get these cribs in. The next trip up we are planning on leveling the whole house with a permanent foundation.
Hello Friends! 🙂 Please don’t mind the junk pile!
The new crib dock…
Ron looooves to swim! We wouldn’t even throw a stick out or anything and we would find him doing laps just for fun!
Before we got to work on our big project at the house, we had to get some fishing in! This is me with my second pike of the day. By the time we were finished we had 8 between us! (I out caught Mike by one but don’t tell him I told you that!)
A good catch of Mike’s…
Fried Pike and Canadian Molson (it’s different and better!!)
In order to do the foundation work that needs to be done, Mike and I decided to tear off the old deck. We nailed in supporting beams to hold up the roof for the time being. If all goes as planned we will have a new roof on by the time winter rolls in.
“Careful up there, dad!”
We met our neighbor for the first time! He brought beer and a chainsaw over to help! I love the Canadian hospitality so far!
The job went much faster than we were planning with his help and the help of power tools!
Here is a sketch of the blue print after all the work is completed! The projects are fun to be a part of but I can’t wait to see the final product!
We came home with a cooler full of pike…
And some much needed R&R… Until next time, Canada! Bon Voyage!
