A quick post about what we’re up to around the resort this time of year. Mid-March and we’re still knee deep in snow. This time last year we were already looking at green grass but I’m pretty sure that’s not the usual. Temps have been in the single digits and I seriously think I’m going stir crazy. I need a little spring! So while I hangout over here daydreaming about what we’ll be doing when we can finally get into the cabins, let’s discuss my mild obsession with these kitchen floating shelves.

So once again we’re in the midst of construction. Bob and I have wondered if we’ll ever get to a point that we can relax and enjoy without anticipating our next project. It’s pretty much been one after another since we’ve been married. How lucky am I to have such a handy guy, though?
Getting back to now, the resort house is coming along amazingly well. I’m impressed everyday by the transformation. The entire goal of this project was to make things more functional for our lifestyle and for resort hosting. I’m completely serious when I say that organization makes me very happy…like to the point that my heart flutters when I learn of all the perfectly lined shelves with poised products that are situated in visible rows. Like soldiers at the ready for whatever job you need them for…um, yes it’s bad…or good?
If you’ve followed the blog for a bit you know that we sorta went from writing about our first house remodel, to our resort ownership journey and some of the reno projects along the way. With our recent shift to things to do in our neck of the woods and some of the amazing wildlife in this area. We decided to make a category called “Resort Life,” the goal is to provide an update about once a month or so.
I thought about completely deleting many of the DIY and renovation projects because they really no longer make sense for people searching for a place to stay in the U.P. I just couldn’t bring myself to do it and the posts are still “live” but are now archived. You can find them here.
As you may (or may not) know Bob cannot sit still. He’ll tell me he’s “not moving on to another project!” then I get home from work and find him eyebrows deep in demolition and suddenly we’re on to the next. We’ll post those fun little side notes here, for anyone who might be interested in our daily shenanigans of resort house living and Twin Cedars hosting.
On to those floating shelves!
First of all, has anyone ever completed a full kitchen remodel and lived to tell the tale? I will not complain. I will not complain. I will not complain!
You guys, this sh*t is challenging! Crap! I did it. That’s the only time I’ll complain.
It’s actually super exciting to see it coming together. I’m so spoiled to have a such a beautiful space and am absolutely blessed to look out that brand new bay kitchen window to an unbeatable view. Speaking of our view, is anyone else getting sick of winter? Come on spring! There I go again…
I told Bob from the get go that I wanted open floating shelves in the kitchen. You’ve all seen them around the web, I’m sure. He actually wasn’t a fan until I showed him these. They have a 150 lb weight capacity and this shop on Etsy gives specific measurement details so you know exactly what you’re getting.
Here’s my inspiration…
Our picture will be posted as soon as they’re installed. We’ll have 3 floating shelves in the new kitchen using maple, a nice consistent hardwood that’ll be good and sturdy. The next thing on my wish list? A kitchen island, but the problem is finding exactly what I want. For some reason no one can read my mind…don’t you just hate that? I wonder if I can convince Bob to build it for me?
