We've Escaped to the Wilderness & We're Building our Home at a Cabin in the Woods... But, are we crazy?? We are so under-prepared for the cold, snowy Canadian winter ahead ๐Ÿฅถ

This week:
โœ”๏ธ Spray foam insulation throughout cabin (including crawl space)
โœ”๏ธ New windows for sun-room
โœ”๏ธ DIY Metal roof installation
Here it is friends: the new adventure we've been dreaming and saving for since we first met 8 years ago. We've always envisioned moving into the woods by the lake and building our dream tiny cabin as a home base for us to come back to in between our international travels. We cannot wait to have a place to call our own!! This week we get our biggest snowstorm yet and simultaneously have the cabin spray foamed for some much-needed insulation. We also transform our screened-in porch by adding Lexan sheets over the windows so we can enjoy the room (and more importantly the VIEW) year-round!! And last we become roofers and tackle the very scary job of replacing our roof on the very steep screened-in porch.

Who are we?
We're Eamon and Bec, a Canadian couple who previously lived and traveled full-time in our self converted Sprinter Van!! When the pandemic hit earlier this year we made the difficult decision to abandon our van in Africa and fly home to Canada. Now we're here... living at a cabin in the Canadian wilderness preparing for a cold, snowy winter ahead ๐Ÿฅถ .
Our goal here is to inspire you to chase after your own dreams! We hope to create a community of like-minded, positive individuals who will grow to love and support one another on their own journeys.

Hey you too. Watching from Luxemburg EU, no sunshine here either. Quick question, the illustrated intro do you do it yourself? If so what app/software do you use because I would love to learn how to do that kind of stuff. Thx a million ๐Ÿ˜Š

I love watching these guys. I would love to know what a cabin like that cost you on a lake. That has to be somewhere in the 750,000 dollar range? I know there's lots of work to be done but the location looks as if it would skyrocket the price.

I thought it was only me as non-native english speaker child understanding the lyrics that way back in the day. Finally I'm not alone xD Much love guys PS. In Poland it gets dark on the south around 16:30 at this point. I hate it. You could have put a synthetic wool between the old shingles and new metal sheets for thermal isolation. That's how we do roofs up here. PS2. Measure sheets before assembling so you can make the cut on the outter side.

The air inn the water... Start at the point where the water enters the system. If the line sucking water into the pump has any leaks at all you can be blessed with air in the water. Next look at the pump itself. Is the pump in like new condition? If the seal has any cracks or scratches on the sealing surface air can be sucked into the pump. Next look at the pressure tank. Depending on the type. The water line should be at the bottom. Some are along the side. Some tanks have a air bladder in the top of the tank. If the air bladder is damaged from aging your tank will water log... Its a mystery where the air goes. Other tanks do not have a bladder in the top part of the tank. This type of tank can also fill up with water. Some pumps have a device which is supposed to put air in the tank when it pumps water to keep it from becoming water logged.

On the issue of air in your line when you first turn on the water. I would check your foot valve in the system to ensure the water is held in the system when you are not using it, instead of seeping back out. Second thing I would check is that there is no air leak on the suction side of the lines pulling a trickle of air into the line. Cheers!
