8/19/16 - we go for a short boat ride to get away from the bugs for a moment, and get to see our cabin from the river. looking pretty cute! those trees sure look tall… and our cabin sure look small. i’m so glad we’re building a tiny place. i hate huge houses. anything over 600 sq ft feels too big to me. luckily, we also have the entire great outdoors as our living space.
