IMG_9743Work is progressing on the Secret Spot and the cabin now has a view!  The original porch of the cabin was all boarded up – so we took off the siding and now new windows have been framed in.  I’ll eventually have two long tables set up in this front room, it will be such a good  space for reading, writing and drawing.
