Part time use for now. Shed will be heated (need to figure out what kind of heater and how big as well) cabin also heated just enough so things don't freeze up. Thinking about running some kind of insulated  channel at ground level and come up into the cabin. Thoughts?

Let's start with a question or two.

Okay, 4 season use, but full time or part-time?  Will the shed and water reservoir be heated?  If part-time use will the cabin be heated in between occupancies? 

As for the interior walls almost anything you like can work.

General Forum / Finishing a shed
« Last post by DIYDoug on Yesterday at 05:25:05 PM »
Hi folks, new to this forum and I need some opinions.  Bit of background, I have a cabin in Northern Saskatchewan (Canada) where winters get very  cold. Working on making it a 4 season cabin.  I just finished building a shed that will be used to house a water reservoir and pump. I built it with 2x6 so I will  be able to insulate it very well. A couple of things I'm trying to decide is 1 - how to finish the inside ie. Drywall (no mudding) or OSB and 2 - how to construct an insulated channel for the water line (pex) to run under and enter the  cabin? I have a 16ft run from the shed to where the line will enter the cabin. Can you provide me with some ideas? Thanks in advance.

I'm really enjoying the new parametrics and the blockout functions:



I initially created the (polyline) stemwall foundation then cut out the garage door with the blockout tool.  Then I drew in the slab (polygon) option.  At that point I decided I wanted a man door 4" off the right front corner, so I used the blockout tool again to create this opening.

Then I realized that slab needed to also flow into this opening so I used the "Edit Slab Outline" feature to modify the outline of the slab and, Voila!  Done.

No manual edits and no having to delete and then recreate assemblies, I like this.

Version 1.4.7 - 09.15.2019
- Enabled the "Draw Opening" tool for polyline stemwalls: Windows and Doors
- Enabled the "Edit Opening" tool for polyline stemwalls.
- Enabled the "Move Opening" tool for polyline stemwalls.
- Enabled the "Delete Opening" tool for polyline stemwalls.
- Fixed a bug with the Edit Blockout tool menu.





Similar to the blockout tools this new feature only works with polyline stemwalls as noted in changelog.

If you have a lot of rebar in your foundation walls and a lot of openings in those walls then the plugin will have a lot of boolean subtraction to do in order to trim out the rebar as shown, this will cause a performance hit but should not be unreasonable on an adequately equipped PC or Mac.  For older machines one way around this is to only toggle rebar on as a final step after all of your other edits to the foundation wall are complete.

The seventh and hopefully final toolbar (at least for now):



This toolbar will allow the user to create, modify, move and delete openings (two types:  doors, windows) within polyline stemwalls.

Once this toolset is added the plugin I think most of my major functionality issues with the plugin will be  resolved.
