Why do you need it?

Maybe I don't with, with my lack of experience I tend to overbuild. If I didn't really need the Tyvek I wasted a lot of time.

Wasting time, surrounded by good friends, breathing fresh air, in a gorgeous natural location is sort of the point though.

It looks great.

I would like to thank everyone that helped me on this from my daughter boyfreind, my brothers, my wife, my Dad, freinds from a nearby hunting camp and a couple people I never met before this project that came to help.

I spent a couple days at the cabin last week but didn't get much done , I installed the shower and toilet and that's about it.

UPDATE:

We got to spend a few days at the cabin last week and had a great time. We actually where able to get our kids to visit witch is almost the entire reason for the project(they are now adults living they're own lives in different parts of the country) . After the kids left we finished up a little plumbing, ran gas lines and installed drywall. we got all the drywall installed on the walls and mud but did not get the ceiling up yet. On the next trip we will finish the ceiling then start installing outlets and appliances.

My wife and I spent a couple more days on this project this past weekend.We got the ceiling up(no mud yet), kitchen cabinets in place micro wave installed and vented, a/c duct installed, home made porch and vanity lights installed, interior doors, and water heater installed but not hooked up yet. next trip will be finishing the ceiling and installing more appliances.
We used the paneling on the walls because we had it and didn't want to waste.

While I am home in FL I try to think of things I can do to save time in TN so I constructed the cedar "beam caps" to cover the beams in the living area and the bedroom, at this time they are just raw lumber.

I used cedar boards from the local box store and went for the rustic hand hewn look and I am pretty happy with the finished pieces. I can't wait to see them installed witch will/ should be simple as trimming to the correct length and nailing in place.[img=null]null[/img]URL
