Quote from: duncanshannon on November 26, 2012, 12:11:55 AMHI - Love your place. I am starting to draw (again?) some plans for my future cabin. I am starting off with your basic plans.... one question so far. Where do you eat? I don't see an eating space (table, counter top/bar) anywhere in your plans nor photos...thanks
Quote from: duncanshannon on December 03, 2012, 03:29:51 PMWould you mind sharing how much you spent getting dried in? I'm thinking foundation, up thru siding, windows, roof etc. Excluding land and any interior work. Bonus points for itemizing a bit!
Quote from: MountainDon on November 25, 2012, 07:29:54 PMVery nice finishing touches to the bedroom!I'd like to interject an opinion that not all may agree with. Here in the SW we may have a greater sense of wildfire danger than those in wetter parts of the country. We have first hand experience with the ferocity of a woodpile ignited by a wildfire. We are pleased it was 50 feet away from the cabin rather than under it. The hotshot crews we spoke with during last years nearby fire agree. Just a thought that may or may not be appropriate to your area.
Quote from: Pritch on December 05, 2012, 08:51:46 PMI was also a little concerned about firewood storage under the cabin. I have heard it is a common way for termites, carpenter ants, and the like to find their way into a structure.
