Cabin construction in Saskatchewan
The road to the site. Saturday, cabin delayed
Helen's brothers have the beams and posts in place.
The view of the slough from the site.
Sunday the cabin arrives backing into the site.
The new neighbours between 5 to 10 snakes
from large to small are sitting on a mound
of disturbed earth next to the site. A plus.
By end of Sunday the deck and floor are in.
Monday the walls begin to go up
Sunday a black bear swims across the
slough in front of the cabin. A bit far for
"The wind blows through
the little hut in the rice field
and the moonlight shines through the roof
and guards us all through the night."
