Look forward to your thread Capt Mark.

Dave-
Excellent job.  This is pretty much how I plan to do mine.  I am probably a year out before starting.

Here's a link to the 20x30 1 1/2 story plan that Dave and Kim extended to 40'. An extra 10' has made everything more spacious.

http://www.countryplans.com/20w_loft.html



Maybe someone can kelp me out - the only version of the 3D I can locate is now Ver. 9
John references the newer versions are not compatible to do plan mods. ??? That remain so or what does one do?
I want to stretch/modify this plan a wee bit more than Dave and Kim and would love to be able to do so.
Thanks and thanks again!

Hi Dave and Kim,

I am absolutely impressed by your cabin in just about every way. I cant believe this, but you have built your cabin exactly the way I have been dreaming mine to be! However, the lot we are considering may not allow us to go 40' long.

This may be a bit personal, but if you dont mind, I am curious what the total build cost was? I am in Canada, so I can assume our cost will be about 35% higher... everything north of the border is more expensive. In all likelyhood, we will build the very minimum (frame, windows, roof) and slowly finish and insulate the interior.

Best,

Rodney

Can you show a picture of how your porch roof is tied into your cabin?  I am building a 20x32  1 and half story with 12 foot walls and my main home and porch roof do not connect.  Thanks!

Yes it has been a long time.  I would imagine that you are prepared for a winter on the water with the fire boat.  Take care and keep your feet out of the water.  Look me up when you get in the neighborhood.

Thanks for sharing your build! We're breaking ground on ours this spring.
I was wondering if there was anything that you'd change if you had it to do over?

This build is such an inspiration for us! Very similar to what we are just starting.
Can you tell me about the exposed beams for the second floor joists? I saw "I joists" over the bedroom, did you just box those in at the kitchen/living area, or
are those solid wood beams in that area?
