Unless you come between a mother bear and it's baby, there is little chance you will be in any real danger. Generally they scatter when they hear or see you.
Generally it is good to wear a brass bell and carry pepper spray when in bear territory, the bell so they hear you and the spray just in case - they hate pepper spray. It is also good to know the type of bear where you are, black or grizzly. Easiest way is to check the droppings. Black bear droppings are smaller, and usually contain bark and insect parts. Grizzly droppings are larger, and often contain brass bells and smell like pepper spray.
I did score what appears to be a brand new 5 burner GE Profile gas cooktop for my cabin there... started out @$125, didn't have the cash... 2 days later it was tagged for $85, I "bought" it but again didn't have the cash on me... came back the next day to pay for it and it was a Taco Tuesday sale day or something and I walked out the door paying $35... score.
Your place looks awesome. What are you thinking for siding?Did you put hangers on the glulam to rafter connection?
I love your build, thanks for taking the time to take and share all the photos. I couldn't believe the extra work you did on the popouts, I don't have much experience with block, but that looked like a lot of extra work. I do think it will be worth it where you cover the end popout with rock -- that is going to look incredible.Thanks again and keep the posts coming - I'm really enjoying following along with your build.
Wow, that was a productive couple of weeks. It looks great, and I'm really digging the panoramic view. Any photos from the loft windows to share?Oh yeah, how heavy was the glu-lam?
