The Hun-Tin House

As I’ve written many times before, this family loves to go huntin’.  We are currently shacking up in a 3 bedroom mobile lodge, in which half of us sleep on air mattresses.  Dad has recently began construction on a hunting lodge big enough to house this brood.  It is affectionately called “The Hun-Tin House.”  This is what SG calls it and it has stuck.  She loves that place more than Dizzy World. 

You know by now that our family does everything together.  Even the construction of a new house is a group project!  We have been spending some of our weekends working on this house.  This weekend was especially hard work!

Here is a view from the front.


And the side.


This is one of my favorite things about this place!


It’s the pump house.

Each of us have different talents to bring to the table.

Here we have our electrical crew…


Now, these two work pretty hard, but we did catch them taking a few too many breaks:)


But once they got refreshed, they went back to work.


Then we have the drywall crew.  They stayed pretty busy the entire weekend.


And let’s not forget the supervisory crew.  Here’s the Big Boss!


He did do a little more than just supervise.  We witnessed him cutting up some drywall.


But the hardest working crew of the day was the cleanup crew.

How about our OSHA approved work boots? 


I even put my tractor-driving skills to the test.  I think everyone was a little nervous.  But if you knew how I drove, you would totally understand:)


Little Brinley got her hands dirty in all of  the action!


During a break, which was few and far between, Gamma and the kids found some wild huckleberries growing near the house.  They did a little pickin’.




Hopefully they managed to get enough to feed the crew next weekend.  I imagine we could cook up a mean cobbler with those berries!
