Have a poll at work also and that is by far, the most popular by a long shot.

Well, got a few pictures, just of the road condition after the plow came by. May have to groom it slightly after its all settled back in place.

It crossed the road in 3 places, last one, you can see a vault just inside my fenceline. I will need to do some dirt work in the ditch too.

All I will have till spring.

Appears to be a predominantly young forest. From previous timber logging or more recent thinning?

TMT, Finally got a screen big enough (at the cabin) to go back and review all 17 pages of your thread. Good way to spend Sunday morning. You’re one of the few I still see posting who’s been here longer than me (2010 vs 12 or 13..).

Glad you’re still at it!

Paul

ICC, the entire area was logged probably thinned 30+ years ago, what was left is now the bigger timber. The rest is just natural reprod stuff. Minus all the real small thick stuff taken out (ground up) from my thinning in 2019. In my very first picture of my cabin foundation, its amazing to see how much the trees have grown since from where I started.

Paulz, yea, I thought after the cabin, I was done posting, but in reality, that was where is really took off. I just figured I could work/decorate the land into a theme and it just grew legs and took off. Still a ways to go.

OK finalized my logo/design, colors flipped, designer is making me an 8 foot long sign using heavy gauge sheet metal and a plasma cutter for my gate. He photoshopped it onto my gate.

Do you have a color picked for the gate sign? Or maybe COR-TEN steel?

Izzy, I want to do the gate itself in the forest service green, found a perfect match, Spring Green" from Krylon.

As for the sign, I would like it to just rust, its bare metal, so will go fast. So your corten, you have the right idea.

Maybe degrease it and wipe down with vinegar to get a start going?

Got my first power bill, was only half a billing cycle, $20. Have account number now, set up in my bankeronline now and with a single mouse click, the check is in the mail. I may scan and copy the bill, blot out the important info, kinda of a milestone, my first power bill over there. The biggest investment I made short of buying the 2, 20 acre lots being a little more each, but not much.

OK, only source of heat at my cabin is woodstove. Now that electricity is in place, I am thinking of maybe a 4 or 6 foot 220V electric baseboard heater with thermostat on one end. Found one that has an "off" position too.

I cant set it so if the fire goes out and cabin cools off, baseboard kicks on and I wake up to a still warm cabin. Its extremely well insulated.

Plenty of times I want to knock the chill out and not build a fire. They seem to come in white, I will paint my a brown to hide it and match the wood inside.

Just bouncing around some ideas. I can get the heater and the add on thermostat for under $100. Made by Cadet.

Opine?

I use them in my cabin, they are cheap, easy to install, work well and give off good heat. They are not cheap to operate though, but it sounds like your use will be minimal so I'd say go for it.

I use a 3000w Cadet in-wall fan heater instead. For me, it has several positives over baseboard ones:

Higher up off the ground, doesn't collect as much dog hair/dirt as the baseboard ones seem to. Doesn't block wall space as much from putting things next to. Heats up air fast, which is handy when I want to warm up the cabin from cold. Can use better/more precise (exterior/outboard) thermostats. Some of those baseboard ones are +/- 6-8 degrees.

Downsides: May be slightly les reliable over time? Noise when it's running. Up front cost may be higher.
