I was just thinking about this last night. How is that window working out? Did you figure out a way to brace it in the center to eliminate that flex?

Troy is no longer posting on DTT. Probably temporary, but there may not be any updates for a good while...

Will be back at it very soon guys I promise. The project has been simmering on the back burner taking a back seat to other projects. Not much has been done since my last post other than purchasing about 3ooo boardfeet of some really nice rough sawn pine. It had a little popular mixed in but mostly pine. Some of the boards are 15-16" wide and up to 16' long. Really stoked about that.
Dad is in the middle of updating one of his bathrooms so he probably won't be around much for the home stretch. I've made some decision about electric and plumbing. I waffled on not having electric instead it was going to have LP gas lights. Decided to wire the building for a couple lights and outlets. If I plumb water to the building it will be for limited use. I plan to have a sink in the kitchen that will be cold only for the time being (hope to build a drain back solar hot water system sometime down the road. The bathroom will be on the outside of the existing foot print attached to the back side of the building and will house a shower, sink and composting toilet. A 200' ditch will need to be dug from the barn to run the utilities. Plan is to run both water and electric but the water won't be hooked up to the building until next phase down the road.
The cabin is south facing and has plenty of solar gain in the winter. It should stay nice and toasty when the sun shines however, I hope to locate a small wood stove for days when the sun doesn't shine. That will come later as well. Right now the next step is to finish studding out the walls, rough in the wiring, insulate and finish with rough sawn walls, ceiling and floor.
 Its kind of cramped at the moment because some of the newly purchased lumber is being stored inside. So a little organizing is in order. Hopefully one day this week.


To keep everyone entertained thought I'd show some of my latest projects.
I'll post a few pics after I post this to keep from losing what's here already.
