It sure looks peaceful there.
My nephews were up helping with the food plots so they took a little time off to fish the creek next to the new cabin build. They caught three really nice brook trout. So yes, very peaceful.

Back at it again. I was able to pick up the two 6' sliders at Home Depot yesterday. Got the dimensions, so today I framed in the west wall. Should be able to complete the gable and install the sliders tomorrow.

The West wall is done and installed both picture windows. Starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. If I can get the sliders and the two other doors installed tomorrow I might be able to get the floor down on Friday. I need to be home on Saturday to receive the JD 70 that is being delivered. Info on another post.

Completed the install of both doors, small bathroom window and one slider. Should be able to install the other slider tomorrow morning and maybe start laying down some flooring. Just one more day left in my build schedule. Next time up will be deer camp.

My last day on the build. Need to get home tomorrow to receive a JD 70. All my goals were reached thanks to some help from my brother in law. It is completely dried in, long before the first snow fall. I will be back up for deer camp on November13th. I'll hunt for four days and spend three days on the interior. Should be able to lay down the floor and insulate the walls.

Well I got back up to the property for a few days of deer hunting. 6 of us in camp for 3 days. We all saw deer but nothing we really wanted to harvest. So I took a couple of mornings from my hunt to lay down the floor in the new cabin. I plan on using a clear epoxy to fill in the cracks between the planks. That should give me a nice surface to keep clean.

Fun read and a great project. Will you allow women to stay there? Hats off for your hard work on the project while working hard on your other job. You are an incredible worker bee!
As for women, yes. We plan on sitting on the porch, sipping cocktails and wine. I'll install a composting toilet for convenience.
