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.
