Fall Turns into Winter in the Methow

This is one of my favorite times of year in the Methow Valley. The summer rush is over, and the ski season isn't quite in full swing. Alex, Leon, and I had the good fortune to be able to spend a long four-day weekend at the house, and it was wonderfully relaxing. We've started renting the house on Airbnb over the last few months, and it has been great to see how well our guests have taken care of it. 

So Close!

So Close!

Our cabin is nearly ready for use! Alex, my mom, Leon, and I headed out to Winthrop for a three-day weekend to celebrate my birthday and work on what seems to be a never-ending punch list of little tasks that need to be completed before we start enjoying the house. I spent much of the last couple trips sealing and installing the custom rusted-steel trim for the baseboards and doors. It came out looking really cool, I think, and adds a nice rustic touch to the look of the place. Thanks to our neighbor Michael Guilfoil for the idea.
