Dusty sent me these photos of their project in Oregon. I am posting them here and will send them a link for further comments.

Nice use of dormers.
Just because something has been done and has not failed, doesn’t mean it is good design.

Hey, Dusty Here - We love our little "cabin" in the woods - We are planning another project for the top portion of our property and we were thinking of doing a 1 bedroom w/kitchenette above a garage but we are still "tuckered-out" from this last go around.  Our family helped out alot.  Both my brothers were involved and even mom and the kids were involved.  There was about a year and a half preparation into the land before we could start building.  We had an old trailor and out buildings infested with HUGE SPIDERS!!!{  We also had to tear up the old septic and put in a new one plus we did all the underground electric-phone-cable ourselves -  The only thing we did hire out was the drywall and I have to say that I was so happy to see a whole crew of people banging out a job in just a few days.  Will write more later.

Worked just fine for me at home! 

Beautiful interior to match the exterior.
A bad day of fishing beats a good day at work any day, but building something with your own hands beats anything.

Hi Guys!

I am new to the forum and to the web site, but I like what I see so far.  I have recently purchased 10 secluded acres in Berea, Kentucky.  I have researched the site for a few days and this is the version of the 20' wide cabin that I want to build.  How can I get plans for this layout (with the two large dormers upstairs)?  I also would like to add a wrap around porch.  Again, awesome cabin!  Thanks for your help.

Here's another comment from Dusty:

Sorry, I personally altered the roof to the design with the shed dormers - I did research at the library on different roof options and the just modified the roof plan - We had to get an engineers approval before the county would stamp our building permit - You would be amazed at all the different roof designs - check out the internet or you local library on "roof trusses" that might be a good start - thank you for your comment and good luck
