I have used this site and forum to get inspiration for my build and wanted to share my progress over three long weekend trips. My brother and I did a lot of the work, but also had girlfriends and daughters to help out. I am heading up this weekend to finish some of the finer details.

Hi,

Very cool build fitzpatt. How are the metal supports you have on top of the concrete pier called? Never seen those before.

Thanks all.

Bas, the supports are called "adjustable supports for decks" and come in various sizes. They are great for small structures like this and are especially useful to correct for heaving and settlement in areas where the ground freezes in the winter. Adjustment is accomplished by way of turning the nut attached to the bolt under the metal piece that the PT lumber sits within. You can elect to drill these into a concrete block or simply set them into a deck block and let the weight of the structure keep them in place.

Great build Fitz! I too need some of those AS for decks. Shear genius they are. Look forward to seeing more pictures as time goes on. Enjoy it with your friends and family. Cheers Sarg68

Thanks leonk, it is located in Hastings Highlands, Ontario. I went up this weekend and started on some much needed additional storage space.

This looks like the Bunkie plans from Tmbr lumber. I saw something like this online somewhere

Nice job!

Thank you both. Yes, this bunkie was loosely based on the timber mart plan. I'm glad you came by this post. It made me realize that I haven't provided an update for some time. I have completed a number of other projects that I will post photos of below.

Fine workmanship! Looks like you did everything right.

You certainly like those screw brackets for footings!

Was going to ask how you made the ladder but there are plans for that on the Timbermart Cabin plan

Thanks all. The bunkie is small at 9 * 12, but the loft allows for a very comfortable queen size mattress.

I do love those metal brackets. They allow you to easily level the structure if it settles against you.

For the ladder we simply used pine lumber and a circular saw to cut many notches for each rung to rest in, along with glue and screws. It is bolted to studs in the wall and pivots up against the wall when we want more room below.

We are located hastings highlands, near Maynooth.

This past weekend we were able to finally get the flooring put in. Turned out really well. My wife is thrilled. Trim is next...
