Man, That's some nice cabin. It was great to see the interior simple but nice. You did it the way I plan on doing mine which is drywall  and t&g ceilings. Very well done, kudos!  [cool]

Hi, great work! I'm from Quebec too and planning to build something soon in the low-Laurentians. About the piers foundation you'd used:
how deep did you dug them?
did you need some "municipal approval" before setting them?
I heard that some town are a bit strict about foundation, only accepting the full-basement...

The piers are four feet deep.
I did get a building permit, no one ever came to inspect it not that I am aware of anyways. My taxes did jump from $200.00 to $1200.00

Your build looks really great! How did the drywall go? We are planning to do ours too. Also where did you get those cabinets, were they pretty reasonable? I really love the look of craftsman style cabinets, but I can't find any within our budget.

Thanks,
Marcy

We installed the drywall and then hired a person to do the taping a plaster. The cabinets and counter top come from IKEA the cost I think was around $2000.00 I used the IKEA kitchen planner program to plan and price out my kitchen, it worked very well.

I thought that was where I had seen that design.   [cool]  All and all what do you think of Ikea's knock down cabinets?  I have seen them in their stores but have not talked any one that has tried them.  We had our eye on them when start our house - then I thought I would build them.  Then it is getting  so late in to the year.  But then what is there to do on cold winter nights other than make raised front panels and cut out drawer pieces parts.   ???
