Trim for Tru Log siding took alot longer than planned. Almost a whole day with starter strip, Window and door trim, Elect. boxes and spickets. Its all ready for the actual siding so hopefully that goes smoothly and a little quicker.

Got a 1000 Gallon propane tank installed and ran to the cabin. Have 2 blue flame ventless  heaters so I can install the insulation this winter when I snowmobile in. Amerigas checked all my fitting for the CSST to give me peace of mind since Im not completely sold on it over black pipe. One question I have is anyone have issues with the propane in the winter. Im installing a propane generator for backup power for the solar but have heard of people having issues with the propane no turning to gas in the winters since its an outside line. Amerigas says I shouldnt have a problem because of the size of the tank, that it happens to the smaller BBQ tanks. Anyone have any advice before I go down the propane generator idea?

Your propane dealer is correct about problems that occur with small cylinders and large BTU demands in cold weather. You should have no problems at all.

The deck looks nice. Love the mountains in the background too!
Just because something has been done and has not failed, doesn’t mean it is good design.

Started the Tru-Log siding finally. Its a slow process especially when working by yourself. Does have foam inserts so gives a R2  value.

Window side took even longer with all the cuts. All the windows and doors have a bold window trim going around them that Ill add next year.

Last side I was working on. Will make another trip to finish most of the siding on this short wall and the other. Will get all the insulation inside and will snow mobile in the winter to install and finish up some interior work. Nice having the propane heaters. My goal was as little maintenance as possible, hence the trek decking and steel siding.

Looks real good! Low maintenance is always a good thing.

Also looks like you're missing a few SDS screws in your brackets for the porch roof.  ;)

Got up and finished the 3rd wall completely and 12' of the last wall. Couldnt go any higher since I need to get the scaffolding out and install the windows. That will wait tell next summer. Have all the insulation inside so hopefully I can snowmobile in this winter to insulate.

Got back up for a couple days. Got the entire roof insulated, the downstairs bathroom, and the exterior walls in the basement at the floor joist insulated (hoping that will keep the basement warmer in the winter).  Got the water heater vented and plumbing. Got the wiring in for the generator to the panel and some small framing done. Would love to make one more trip to get the exterior walls insulated, inspected, and be done with insulation but we will see when snow hits.
