@ilhanmn and @rashidatlaib will always be welcome at Cabinland. As a Jew I find it infuriating that people like my president pretend to care about Jewish folks and claim that if someone is critical of Israel, that means they’re critical of Jews. That’s a lie, you deceitful d-bag! 
As a Jew I can sympathize with a Jewish state. The desire for one to be formed after the holocaust. The fear and anger I feel when Jews are bombed or shot because they’re Jewish. However Israel got it wrong when it first forcibly removed people from their lands in the name of a Jewish state. If we think about the holocaust and what we say is, “never again” then that means not just for Jews but for Palestinians... for everybody. Colonization is wrong. You’re allowed to be critical of the Israeli state as a colonizing force and still support Jews. While there has been violence “on both sides” it is never proportional. When rockets were launched into Israel from Lebanon in 1984 and a number of Jews died, Israel invaded Lebanon and 14,000 civilians died. That’s wrong and just one example of many. You’re allowed to be critical of those things and still support Jews. 
Many aspects of the history of Israel cause me great shame as a Jew. It is the same shame I feel when I think of the forcible removal of indigenous people in my county. I stand with people like Albert Einstein and Howard Zinn who were critical of Israel, sympathetic to Palestine, and were no less Jewish for it.

With the ceiling of the octagon cabin finished I find that I’m falling in love with it all over again! Now I just need to convince @saraunderwood to let us rebuild a slightly improved version at Cabinland...

Kaleidoscopic ceiling.
I finished the ceiling of the octagon cabin! Never before have I used so much geometry and boy am I glad I paid attention to my teachers when I was a kid 😉
All of the wood shown here is the salvaged throwaway material from a mill in Idaho. I’m glad I was able to give it a second chance and save it from the burn pile

Slide 1: The owner of the 2nd cabin I ever built was finally able to patch up the moss that was torn down by the snow and ice from last year! 
Slide 2: me and my dad visiting the cabin a few weeks back on our cross country road trip
Slide 3: the cabin covered in snow taken by @lostintheforrest

I’ve been staying here at the octagon cabin for the past week and it’s felt restorative and exciting to say the least. I installed an RV oven/range salvaged from Cabinland and finally finished the ceiling. These are photos from before my most recent work on the cabin. One thing I love about building is the evolutionary process involved. Even when I’m “done” I’m not ever really done. There’s always more to do and I love it. The cabin doesn’t look like this anymore but I’m thankful to have the pictures to be able to document its journey. 📷 by @jscottish

When good things come into your life, grab them and hold them as tight as you can.

Tell the people you love, that you love them... The cliches are right because you never know when you might get shot at a Walmart or a garlic festival by a white supremacist. Have you noticed that when these insecure, hateful monsters commit atrocities like this people want to discuss mental health instead of gun reform? If it’s a Muslim then it’s terrorism.  If it’s a white dude then we need to figure out why he was sad. Call it what it is.  Terrorism. Sara and I own guns for a lot of reasons but there’s no need for people to have weapons of war like assault rifles. If you think universal background checks are going to lead to the reversal of the second amendment then you’re delusional.

Rub-a-dub-dub, summer time scrub. The outdoor shower is in full effect! Designed for barn animals our on-demand portable water heater seems to work just fine for humans too.

@kichlerlighting helped us take the exterior cabin lighting to the next level! The tiki torches we had earlier made the cabin feel like we were on the set of Survivor but now it feels like a legit spacecraft landing pad...
SWIPE for a close up one of these awesome low voltage exterior lights. They’re so easy to hook up and look sophisticated anywhere you nestle them.

Do you see how many dresses Sara has been sent to model in front of this cabin and would you believe I haven’t even gotten a single offer yet?!
