So it's been quite some time since I last posted any updates. I haven't done any work on the outside since the weather turned to crap in November. I have been plucking away at running the plumbing venting above the ceiling and insulating it as well as doing a little wiring. Here is the where the outside stands as of now. I am still waiting for the roofer to come and install the standing seam roof on the entrance overhang.

Here are a few of the venting and ceiling insulation. It starts out with R-30 at the bottom, R-27 polyiso on the slant, and finally two layers of R-30 in the actual ceiling. I used Owens Corning Raft-R-Mate baffle vents for between the Kraft faced insulation and the roof decking and then 1 1/2 in spacers under the polyiso insulation to allow for proper venting up to the ridge vent.

couple more... My dad helped me cut and place the polyiso insulation... what a messy and dusty material to work with. I purchased a special 6 inch jigsaw blade made for cutting insulation but this stuff was too dense and thick so the blade wandered.. I ended up using a skill saw on one side which made a huge mess and the jigsaw with foam blade to finish from the other which seemed to work ok.

Finally finished up insulating the cabin the other day. I have been plucking away at it whenever I got the chance. I will work on the wiring when I get a chance but not until after we return from vacation. Sugaring will be starting soon as well and I owe my brother some time for his help and the use of his excavator so it might be awhile before I can get any more serious work done at the cabin.

My Dad came up yesterday and helped me put up the downstairs bedroom partitions and we framed up the closet near the front door.. another hour of so and the downstairs inside walls will be all framed in. Still need to get the wiring done but I decided I will try to get all the inside walls framed up if possible before sugaring starts and I need help my Dad and Brother with that.

Your moving along really quick.

What program did you use to make the drawings in your first post?

Thanks Brettny.. I didn't use any program, those are all just hand drawings I came up with on graph paper. It took several hours and revisions before I came up with my final design. Lots of tweaking and shifting things around in order to make everything fit and function. It was a fun process.

LOL, thanks Brettny. I actually enjoyed the process. Working with graph paper makes the drawing and planning much easier. I used to draw a lot when I was a kid but haven't really since then. This gave me an opportunity to do it again! I am working on the future kitchen cabinet sketch right now. I had one done but have since added a couple of feet to the wall they will go on as well as a 70" L section so I will have to redo it. All first floor partitions are up now so I will be plucking away at the wiring when time allows.
