Ballymurrin is Nearly Complete!

Are you sitting down? This is really big news! At times I wondered if I’d end up with ducks in the tub for the rest of my life. My sister’s duck still winters in their tub and Humphrey is 10 years old! After months (and months, and months) of planning, construction, delays, and dreaming Ballymurrin is nearly complete!

Ballymurrin Quacker Farmstead

It was suggested by a couple of friends here in the blogosphere that the Duck Cabin is really more of a duck castle. I agree. The home Mr. C is building for the ducks is absolutely amazing. I even researched some good Irish castle names for Freckles’ and Penguin’s new home. But we decided on Ballymurrin Quacker Farmstead. And there’s a reason for this.

Moving Forward on the Duck Cabin

Things have been moving forward on the Duck Cabin. In spite of some rainy days Mr. Comfortable has been able to get a lot done. I feel terrible about not being able to help but most of the things he’s been doing are things I can’t do anyway. The important thing is that he’s still moving forward on the Duck Cabin so Freckles and Penguin can move in soon!

Serious Construction on the Duck Cabin

The original video that inspired the duck cabin has disappeared from the internet. I didn’t think that was even possible! But in spite of this little setback we’ve begun serious construction on the duck cabin!

Work on the Duck Cabin has resumed!

It’s been a while since we’ve done any work on the duck cabin. Mr. Comfortable hasn’t been feeling all that well and, with two weddings so close together, we were busy with other things. I’m thrilled that work on the duck cabin has resumed!

Progress on the Duck Cabin

It’s been fascinating to watch the duck cabin start to come into existence. Mr. Comfortable has moved from cutting logs for the walls to building the frame for the cabin. I finally feel we’re making progress on the duck cabin!

Working on the Duck Cabin

We’ve been fighting our usual Michigan weather to start building the cabin for Freckles and Penguin. One day it’s 70 degrees and sunny and the next it’s 45 degrees and raining. But we have had enough nice days that we’re finally able to begin working on the duck cabin!
