Project Adkins Family Cabin

Perhaps you saw this post last Spring.  The pictures were taken at my Dad's cabin on our family farm.  I was really hoping they would catch the attention of my favorite print publication, Garden & Gun.  Maybe they'll be looking this time!  At any rate, I am really excited, because Dad and I are about to get started on a fun little addition to his cabin.  Currently, the cabin is what you see here, all 850 sq feet of it!  We are adding a new master bedroom, updating the downstairs bath, and I am getting five more feet in the kitchen!  I am so excited to have a project to work on, even if it is not me acquiring the new digs in my own home.  It is going to be so great.  My Dad is a simple man who does not need a lot of things.  This cabin is reflective on that philosophy, but what is there; the land, the large covered porches on front and back and that on the back which looks out onto the pond, is all oh so dreamy.  I look forward to it all, but the thing I look forward to most is the outdoor shower.  Is there anything better in the world?  Maybe an outdoor shower at Pawleys Island, but this is going to be an amazing second.  Below are a few inspiration photos for the new addition.

What do you think?  Do you love an outdoor shower as much as I do?  I can't wait for a BIG FAT white farm sink in the kitchen.  I also reclaimed a few items from my old apartment building recently torn down (TRAGEDY!) in Historic Dilworth, on the corner of Morehead and Kenilworth. I was able to grab the glass cabinet doors from my old kitchen, as well as crystal door knobs and the most amazing slatted door.  Check out my Pinterest board for more cabin inspiration. I would love hearing if you have any awesome one of a kind ideas for me and Dad!
