Man, and I thought you were sleeping this whole time! Actually you and I are in the same boat. It's been almost 2 months since I've updated my thread. I have quite a bit of progress to document though, looking forward to seeing what you've been up to.

Guys my humblest yet again work has been super crazy so I will do my best to go back through and update since the last postings... It has been exciting I am now enclosed, sided, roof on plus recently statered a septic system... Can't wait to get your feedback. I have been spending sometime going through the newer feeds getting my excitment flowing and motivation building for this building season. I am trying to make a golden push for the finish line this year. Goal is to host the family Canadian thanksgiving party in the cabin in October this year.

Very nice build.  I noticed you went with trusses.  From a cost perspective (and time) were they cheaper than rafters?  Also, what was your pitch on the trusses?  One last thing...do you mind sharing your cost per truss?  I am try to nail down a plan, but have no idea how to estimate for a cost for trusses.  Most everything online is a standard 4:12 pitch, which is about $35-50 depending on length.  I know your style would definately be more.

Thanks,

Ansley

First of all thanks for the kudos, it truly has been a labour of love over the last few years for sure. I went with trusses based on my skill level. I dug out my invoices fo the trusses and there was 2 gables and 11 scissor trusses. The bill including delivery on site and booming them onto the roof was only $975 plus taxes so $75/each. My pitch is 12/12 on my roof. at the point of the trusses I had a whole lot less skills than I have right now :)

I had them on the roof and braced within about 2-3 hours even with the skills I had back then. So for me it was economical and efficent. If I was to do it again I would do it the exact same way.

Greetings.  I see it's been a long time since you last posted.  Where did you finally decide to place the stove?? I love your design, after an exhaustive search, it's just what I've been seeking
