Internet and TV at the Cabin

Since we have a pretty good chance of living out one of our dreams soon—a dream of living full-time at the cabin—we’ve started taking small steps toward making the cabin our full-time home instead of a weekend retreat.

We’ve started the design of a garage that we can use to house our vehicles, but also to provide extra storage and a place to put a refrigerator, clothes dryer, etc. But, that will need to wait until next Spring before we do excavation or construction.

However, we decided to go ahead and install satellite Internet and TV. I worked with a great small company based in Loveland called Satellite Solutions to order a DirecWay Satellite Internet system. While they were up here to install it, I also had them put in a DirecTV dish. We have DirecTV at home in Fort Collins, so we can just bring a receiver up here when we come up for the weekend and get TV at no additional charge.

Both work great. In fact, I’m posting this article from the cabin on Sunday afternoon (it is half-time in the football game).
