So, I have had a few questions about the cabin in Colorado. Dana and I bought an acre of land on the Conejos (Rabbit) River in South Central Colorado in 2000. In 2001 the boys and I along with two brother-in-law and my sisters and one brother we went from a stem wall to a cabin int he dry in 13 days. As the years have gone by we have done the plumbing, kitchen cabinets, bathrooms and added a garage. The bedrooms are almost complete lacking only trim work and flooring. This cabin has been a lot of fun and has served as a meeting place for my siblings. This year we put decks on the front and back and they are really great. Up until this year we simply had risers nailed to the front and back door thresholds. So, this work in progress is 9 years old and it looks like at least three or four more years before we are finished. I am going to try and put some pictures up. The cabin is located in South Central Colorado at an elevation of 8500 feet. It is surrounded by mountains which rise to an elevation of 9000+ feet. The river runs about a hundred yards from our front door and has Rainbow, Brown and Cutthroat trout. I am blessed and always have wanted a cabin in the mountains. Foree
