QuoteI figure that I will only need to interrupt one of the floor joists for the stairwell, so that means that I will need to figure out how to support the end(s) of that joist that would otherwise simply hang out in space.

The way you describe it it seems you could double the third joist from the wall and use a double, or triple header spanning from the doubled joist to the joist against the wall, supported by jack studs (on the wall side). All tied together with structural hangers.Haven't read the whole thread lately so I'm not sure what the dimensions are but it seems that you would need some crazy steep stairs to do it that way.

Josh and I saw many deer today and watched two bucks bounding away at ~600 yards out. My 16x35 binos just barely made out the antlers on one which I felt was most likely a 5x5 but not 100% sure because the light was fading. We're going back in the AM to try again but I wish we were at the cabin! One thing about work (22.5 hours Friday/Saturday) is that it can get in the way of our plans!!Good luck and maybe we can hook up during Elk season?

Quote from: OlJarhead on December 06, 2010, 02:47:44 PMHmm...Jeep goes in deep snow If the truck is missing on #8 then do a compression test and see if it's reading something different then the others. Are there other symptoms? How many miles?After much fighting with mine with similar issues it turned out to be a sunk valve Cost me $1200 to have the top end rebuilt but the Road Warrior is much happier now.Erik

Come to think of it, there is a bit of a ticking sound I meant to investigate. Lord I certainly hope it's not going to be a rebuild. She's got 145,000 on her and runs like a top otherwise. I think I have a buddy local that has a compression guage.
Quote from: JavaMan on February 16, 2011, 09:38:47 AMFirst, I'm going to pull down the roof rafters (4 of them) that we put up late last summer and the ridge board. I've decided that I don't need a ridge board,and I'm going to put the "loft" across the entire thing. That way I'll be able to work up at that height without feeling like I'm going to fall off any moment (fear of heights) ... then I"m going to assemble some rafter pairs and stand them up one-by-one, tying them together -
