Camp Project Progress
First of all, shout out to Nate at Pine Creek Structures for being so patient with me bc I probably drove him crazy this week with my indecisiveness! ANYWAY, we are going to start with the structure that has the 5 ft wall that I found on FBMP and then bring in the 2nd mini a-frame down the road, maybe later this summer or next summer. The original quote, with a metal roof, came back for $7,000, much less than the one I saw on FBMP. I then downgraded to an asphalt shingle roof to save $600, and then I added another door, more windows, and a vent in the roof so that we can add insulation down the road if we wanted to, so the quote went back up to $7,000, and now I’m adding back the metal roof. The whole thing is going to cost about $7,600, including tax and delivery. We are also going to have to have someone come out, and prep the site to make sure it is level before they deliver the cabin, and I have no idea how much that costs. Nate told me that their average lead time is 2-3 weeks, but since this is a custom build, it will be more like 4-6 weeks. I’m going there tomorrow to give them a 25% down payment to get things started! Here is a terrible rendering to give you a vague idea of how things will look.
Next on my list is to figure out which color siding and roof we want. My instinct is to just go with black on black and keep it simple, but since we don’t have insulation, I feel like going with dark colors will attract heat, and I will regret it. Below are all of the colors I have to choose from. Substack won’t let me open up commenting uless you are a paid subscriber, so if you have any input, please feel free to e-mail me your opinion on colors because I have no idea! I really only like the burnish slate color for the roof, but it’s so dark. Or should I just not care and go with dark anyway?! IDK!
This absolutely adorable brick A-frame in the Brazilian countryside is only $23 a night! There are farm animals and an orchard to explore! This looks like a perfect place to run off to for a few weeks since it will only cost you about $165 per week. This is taken right from the listing: “Guests can access the courtyard, orchard, garden, sheds, foal, and Cachaçaria. One tip is to bring older shoes so you can explore the place without worrying.” I know nothing about the Brazilian countryside, I am just basing my recommendation on how cute this house is, so do your research first, as always.
