A few pictures of the inside which is getting close to being done. Still need to make a bar top and finish molding and stair rails and spindles.

I just read thru your entire thread. Your cabin is sweet. I'm a little surprised that some of the haters haven't started slamming you yet for being rich. Anyway, I love your build and will watch the progress.

Thanks Salty for the kind praise. I do get a sense that I get a cold shoulder from lots of members. In my neck of the woods a small cabin is 20 X 30.

Hey Shadyacres, Thanks for posting the pics. It's inspiring. I'm curious. How much of the work did you do yourself?

Hello Walthall, I can say I have done a lot of work but not all. Of course I had someone excavate for the basement then I placed the drain pipe and helped with the stone base. Then the superior wall people put up the basement ( in about a hour and a half I might add). I then installed the sill plates. I had a local crew put up the shell. I did finish the osb in the gable areas. It is fun putting up a 4 X 8 sheet of osb about 4-6 ft above your top ladder rung by yourself. But I got the gables done THEN I bought scaffolding. I did the fascia and soffit and also installed the gable metal edges. I put all the windows in myself accept the gable windows because they were hard to lift in place by myself. Basically everything else I did myself. That includes moving the monster pile of rocks and dirt that was behind the cabin from digging the basement. I abuse my John Deere 770 but it keeps on ticking. Thanks for the question and if you have any more I will be glad to answer or try to answer them. Shady Acres

I must warn you that you may find my thread quite unorganized. Its a bunch of random mumbo jumbo with a few cabin pictures. Not really a complete document of my adventures. I didn't really put pictures of my progress like many of the intelligent folks did. My strong opinions are mostly gathered by ready my interactions with others on this forum. I'm a conservative known as;

Finally decided to go with vinyl siding with some hemlock board and batten in the front gable.

I made need 2 1/2 men to help me install this bar top. 2 3/4 think hickory and oak makes it mighty heavy. Once in place it will be very solid.

Everything looks real good. Your exterior colors are identical to mine. Bar top is serious!!! I like.

Yes Salty , I noticed we have a lot of similarities in colors inside and out of the cabin. Yes , I may have gone overboard on the top , I had to slide it to get to the table to sand it down.

What a great build!! You're gonna like the lack of maintainance on the siding you chose -- our "big lodge' actually has steel siding shaped like logs -- it sounded horrible -- but actually really looks nice and fits right into the surrounding Arapahoe National forest setting -- Its been there since 2001 and haven't lifted a finger the composite deck is awesome as well ..

Wow , brokeneck what a beautiful cabin. I see what you mean with the siding , it looks like real logs from that distance. Do you have a thread on this site ? I tossed about using all board and batten and I know it would have looked really nice but I kept coming back to the maintenance issue so I decided to use vinyl with some board and batten thrown in for good measure. Thanks for the kind words.
