Hi Curt sorry I haven’t got back to you sooner I haven’t been on line lately. I still have not completed my ceiling in the porch area nor installed my vents (soffits).
Your cottage is looking awesome you have made some good progress.

I think Glenn had mentioned blocking the veranda joists to install soffit to.  Is this the idea?

Winter showed up this weekend at the land.  Weird thing is that 10 miles from the cabin, there isn't a drop of snow.  Started the interior......

getting close to finishing the interior pine.  Does anyone know what the drawbacks are if no coating is put on the pine?  I was thinking of just leaving it natural.

Mainly it won't stay looking that way.

Anything rubbing against it may leave marks, dirt, that may be difficult to remove. 

The wood will discolor over time. Pine will get more and more yellow if uncoated.

A good clear coat stops the yellowing. I don't like yellowing and particularly like Minwax Polycrylic.

But it is a personal choice. What you have looks nice. A clear coat will keep it looking that way.
Just because something has been done and has not failed, doesn’t mean it is good design.

Another option is a "soft coat" finish such as a danish oil (Watco and others). This gives a satin finish that still breathes. It can be scrubbed and renewed and will not chip, crack or scratch the way hard coat finishes do. It will slow the natural darkening of wood.
None of us are as smart as all of us.

Geez, this looks just gorgeous! I'd love to see your floor plan and what you did with the utility room/bathroom addition.
