Hey Jimmy, you (or someone at your house) have great taste in doors.




Front door in our CO cabin
I think the glass is a little different but still very much the same.  I fell in love with it when I saw it.  
Lowe's??

(Judy - I tried to edit, but couldn't get the images to post. Do they show for others?, John)


I dont think Yahoo pictures allows direct linking. I posted the pictures in photobucket.

From Judys post:

Jimmys reply:
Yes it was Lowes for the front and back door. And Home Depot for the French door.
The person with good taste would be my wife, Lisa. She knew what doors she wanted before we decided what house to build!

Six inches of rain this weekend. It was not a total loss. I pre-built some my 6 foot walls for the second story.  We will carry the sections upstairs as soon as we have weekend without rain in the forecast.

Nothing like trying to hog all the rain, Jimmy. :-/

We've had plenty too -and snow.  Sure slows progress.

Looks great.

I have a question.  Are you going to use a ridge beam?  If so, what size were you planning and how long will it be?  Is it going to run the entire length (spliced) or will you use two smaller pieces?

Just curious...I can't quite figure out how I am going to do mine.  I o like the idea of the braces you appear to have on either end to support it.

I will use a single 2x12 ridge beam. It will be spliced in the center of the house. The spliced section will rest on the wall and header assembly of the upstairs stairway entry. I am going with a cathedral ceiling and will be using three 2x10s-built up making a beam that will be used as a collar brace in the center of each room at 8 feet from the floor.  The ridge beam will rest on the center board of the built up center post. I modified the drawing to make my main support beam to the center of the house. This decreased the kitchen and dining area width. So my way may not work for you.

I like the blue roof. You can probably stop right there and move in.  ;)

Might have to replace it in a year or two.  (hold it down with four big staples and a square of tarpaper):)

Jimmy your house is looking awesome.

I'm assuming the pictures in your other album posted on May 19th is of the interior and that you have moved in your new home.

It looks awesome.....love the ceiling!

What did you use on the floor?

The other album I have is a collection pictures from of other peoples cabins.
I clipped the pics from AAA-DAY's (Amy and Dan), and Micky's photo album.
They both had several things I wanted mine to look like.
I created the second album so I could have quick reference.
I Guess I need to go in there and label it as that!

When I am finished building everyone will know it!

 ;D yeah I know what you mean!

I was envious there for a moment thinking that you and the family had taken up residence in your new abode.

Jimmy,

Can you let me know what kind of roof pitch your 20 x 40 has? Already planning the new building for my former wife and the children.  :)

I hate to admit this but... I don't know how to figure roof pitch.
I drew many different heights of the roof until my wife and I agreed on a pitch that looked pleasing to the both of us.

Maybe this will help..

Very close to a 12/12 pitch roof.     And it is very smart looking.  :)
