Took a picture of the solar setup since I'm out for the weekend.

Well the wait is finally over. Was finally able to take the new boat out to the property with a load of supplies and got the floor finished. Decided to go with a simple 10x10 after changing the plans a million times through the winter wait. Excited to finally get out there and get some work done.

Oh wow! Nice and close to the water. Super cool. These Ontario bunkie builds are my favorite. How did you end up bringing the materials in?

Ya it’s got a pretty nice view in both directions I’m really happy with how the location turned out. I ended up picking up a cheap 12 ft boat and hauling everything in with that. It’s had it’s scary moments especially today with the rafters coming in but so far it’s worked out great. Got caught out in the rain today but still managed to get some progress. Its starting to come together nicely.

Finished off the roof rafters today and added in some more bracing between wall studs for more support. I’m having a little to much wiggle in the building side to side I’m hoping It will go away once the sheeting is put on. If anyone has any suggestions on improving stability I’d love to hear them. Also got my first glimpse of the view from the sleeping loft and I’m looking forward to that view first thing in the morning

I would put 1 sheet of siding on each side as soon as you can .

You think that will be enough to stabilize It? T only wobbles when I give It a good shake but it’s still more than I’d like

I was pretty concerned with our bunkie as well. One sheet of siding stopped the wobble completely.

How high did the river get this spring? We had a fair amount of water this year.

When I build them I put the siding on before I raise the walls. But if you are alone they are heavy.

Okay great job that makes me feel better haha. I would have preferred to sheet It first but I was alone unfortunately and It would have been difficult. But I’ll grt out there soon and get some sheeting on It should be fine until then. We’ve had a lot of water here to this year the river is definitely higher then I’ve seen It. I should be safe from the water though It still has a ways to go before It gets up that high
