    Default Re: Rare snow. Cabin Picture.

    Jayste, it is almost 1000 sq ft. The layout is simple: right side (as pictured above) is one big room. There is a simple open kitchen and a dining area in it. The other half is two bedrooms and a small bathroom. The 'great' room featured scissor trusses that give it a high ceiling. The right side wall has a space for a fireplace and chimney and we went ahead and included a footing for the fireplace as well. One of these days.

    Jinman, yes, the front steps are an obvious omission. Its mostly due to the same reason that there are no closet doors in one bedroom, no fireplace, no door (just a board) for the crawl space, no insulation, etc etc. Just ran out of funds, energy and time. Plus we're still debating whether or not to screen in the porch. And, in order to put steps on the front we need to have a gutter installed across it. So its just one in a long list of things to do before the cabin gets 'finished' for real.

    Sad thing is, we still haven't finished and its already time to paint and stain again!

    Here are a couple of interior shots:

    Nice cabin and great picture. I used a portable building for my cabin, so it isn't nearly as pretty as yours. The covered porch is a favorite feature of yours.
    My wife also mentioned the steps.

    You did a very nice job.

    I know the feeling. My projects always seem to take longer than I have time for them. My barn rebuild which I expected to take two years on will end up being more like five or six. Mean while, driveways need rebuilt, another building needs finished, etc, and so on.

    George, that great room/dining room/ kitchen area is huge. It's just what it should be. I especially like the view of your kubota out the kitchen window.

    You certainly have a very comfortable and beautiful cabin. You'll always have a project to do there and a good excuse to enjoy getting away for a few days.

    I like the layout of it. The mounts on the wall are pretty impressive as well!

    Here is what the snow did at our place. It was good snow. It showed up overnight and was melted by lunch time!



    I looked at a dozen Holly trees and this was the only red berry left.

    The neighbor's fence. I think he cut down the Ceders on my land before it was my land.



    If he did take the Ceders from what became my land the photo makes up for the lost trees. I have plenty of Ceders.
