Hello all,

Just put a short trailer on Youtube for the next build.

NathanS gave me an idea so I put a lot of nature views in the trailer. 

The cabin will be 16 by 28, Ill post the plan I came up with soon as well as all the updates as I build this thing.

Good Morning,  c*

I looked at 4 lots and picked one, here is a vid of the process and also what I am going to be building.





448 square foot footprint, still toying with the idea of a loft but gotta make up my find if it is worth the extra money.

/cheers

Very cool.

It is great to show balancing the cost/practicality of roads, septic, sitework, with having a view. We ran into that problem too many times to count.

Do you have a buyer already lined up for this house too, or will you list it when it's complete?

I will list this thing when I'm almost done with it, I thought about moving in this one, but we'll see. The reason I don't want to list it now is I dont want to traverse the "custom" house build territory, basically I'm trying to avoid drama, so I build it, list it, and sell it.

Life is a hell of a lot simpler that way then to deal with change orders all the time, I hate working backwards, so I only do "spec" homes no "custom" 

Thx by the way for suggesting nature shots in my videos that is what I'm gonna go from now on.  c*

That's definitely a smart way to do it.

It really is beautiful down there. The east coast mountains in general are some of my favorite.

We are getting started on 3rd winter now. With a little luck we'll be in mud season soon.  :)

Smart man, I should be so wise... and that's all I'm sayin  :D

I'm working on harvesting timber and sawing framing, sheathing and siding for a friend's house that burned, same footprint. Over the past few weekends we felled and digested one nice white pine for board and batten siding, it yielded 60 1x12's and well more than that many 1x6's for paneling, it'll only take one more whopper to side it at that rate.

One suggestion since you are putting this much effort into your posts. A website is not expensive and then you are hosting and in control of the photos, etc. I've got a couple of small ones, after the initial setup the bill comes to around $20/yr. P-bucket and for that matter all the free hosting... well, think about it, does that sound like a sustainable business model, that stuff is going to disappear again one day.

Thx Don, website is definitelly in the works, I just never did one so it's a slow go. But at some point I will have one. I just like posting here since you guys helped me get started with my business. I said in another post, I even bought plans from this website long time ago but I never built it and lost the plans lol.

I gotta chop down about 6 pines and they are at least 30 feet tall, I wish you could come and get em. I had one of my subs helpers come and get some firewood tho. I will show us messing around with cutting the little guys in about 2 episodes.

Love this website and I'll always post here until you guys throw me out lol.
