Irrigation guy, I hear you on the wife ideas. Always seem to be the most expensive. But gotta keep them happy. We spent more because we knew we were going to move to cabin at some point.

When I did the calculations (pre covid) our 20x32 cabin with porch and two large lofts will cost about $5k for a dried in structure. I have been collecting and milling my own lumber for this project for 4yrs..well before we even owned the property.

Ops sorry 3 rows of sono tubes. I believe 18 of them. 12inx4ft. Metal gambrel roof, windows (used) and two new entry doors included. Siding wasn't included as we dont know what kind we are going to use.

Brettny sounds good. Will you be planing any of the lumber or using a hand plane just at certain areas that need it ?
