Looking good! And glad to hear the bugs are calming down, we're heading upstate soon. The flies were really bad this year on our earlier trips up. When do you think you'll be doing the "big" cabin build?

The plan in the back of my head is to finalize the drawings this winter, get the permits in the spring, summer/fall get the sono tubes in and floor framing done and tarped for the winter. Then in early spring of the following year hit it hard to hopefully get a dryed in structure done before the mosquitos/flies get bad in the heat of the summer.

I have a rough drawing sketched out and we have been collecting building materials. I got brown metal roofing, 7 large windows and the ash floor boards milled out.

Im really starting to want a shipping container up there just to keep collected materials in.

Looks great! I really like your space. The blackflies and mosquitoes can get pretty bad in my area as well, though the blackflies usually only last a couple weeks. I got one of those propane powered mosquito traps that seems to be working well. My wife calls it "Mega Death". We have noticed an improvement. I read somewhere that if you can kill one female at the beginning of the season you can prevent 1 million of its offspring from bothering you. I think its called the Blue Rhino Skeetervac. Worth looking into. One 20lb tank lasts a month.

Thank you.

I looked into all types of fly/mosquito killing decives. Im keeping an eye out for a used propane powered one in the off season.

A big double 3 day weekend at the shed this past weeks. More stone delivered, wood shed built and semi filled, burned a brush pile, got the water pump working and the IBC tote filled. Its pumping at 7.5gpm into our tank, 35min on the generator and that should be enough water for half a year. Got a bunk bed built out of beatle kill ash i milled. I highly recomend the 6in foam mattresses walmart has. And...we have a hot shower with a half built shower stall. Lots of work for one guy and two dogs.

I have to drive to town, about 30min to get the wood chips for around the cabin. I also placed a tree stand on state land and scoped out a spot on my own property.

I can be real ache at night and at home i wore out a very expensive bed in 3years. Il buy one of these walmart foam mattresses again. I bought a king and cut it in half to make two twin XL mattresses. Cuts real easy with a circular saw.

Spent the wekend at the property again. Got the wood stove mostly in, it still needs a heat shield for the stove pipe. Worked on the shower stall a bit more, put up a ladder stand and cleared some more tree tops covered in pricker bushes. We also burned a large pile of brush. I got rained out for half the weekend but overall not a bad weekends work was done.

Fall is a great time to be in the woods.

The ceiling is 70* insulated with foam board that i cut to fit between the rafters and spray foamed the cracks. That was one of the things i can do mid day durring hunting season or in the rain. The floor has foam tiles and im not going to insulate the walls.
