Big Addition to a Small Cabin by George – My Windsor Project Contest Entry

As we are now living in our cabin as a year round home our plan was to make the kitchen bigger and make room for a proper water filtering system. We started by enclosing our existing 12’ x 14’ covered overhang. We also moved the dining room wall 4’ to the west. This meant rearranging the existing bathroom and by doing so we converted an existing bedroom into an ensuite and mechanical room. WE are only days away from having everything done  (has been a long 4 months). Part of the problem was the original cabin is 50 years old, it has a 30-year-old addition and we are using modern building techniques. The doors are from Windsor Plywood and are made from Brazilian Plantation pine. The cedar beams and all of the pine trim and baseboards are also from Windsor Plywood. We are very pleased with the results and have received a number of compliments.

Kitchen Helpers

Wooden spoons shouldn’t be stored in a drawer with metal utensils and knives. They should be out in the open where they can be seen when needed. Your spoon supply, counter or wall space will determine the size of these projects. When hung on a wall, the racks will look better finished in an oil or stain. Or, if you would like it to match the spoons, just leave it natural.
