Thanks for the input. I do hope to get the insulation and siding done before winter. Everything is so slow though.

Last weekend saw me and my dad get the other windows in. I'm nearly ready to begin siding. We had a bear come by to inspect the housewrap and styrofoam behind it with his claws. So that motivates me a bit to keep going.

As for heat, I plan to get a wood stove in someday.

I've been able to steal a few more days on site. Loft flooring, sealing gaps, and beginning the siding (bevelled cedar).

More siding added over the weekend as well as new support under the porch posts. These were not supported by the skids (see drawings, page 1) which was my design flaw

Today I went up for a day trip with my middle son. It took us a few hours, but we succeeded in hanging the door. It's a great fit (at least so far). It latches well and snugly with the door stops.

I started this project back several months ago getting the door ready for a cabin that was only a plan at the time. Seeing it installed feels like a nice bookend to the project.

There's still so much to do, some of it thanks to pesky bears.

Door looks great! To bad about the Bear damage. I've seen bears roaming my property the last few trips but luckily no damage. Do you store any food inside the cabin?

No food. I can't figure out if the motivation is just plain curiosity. I'm contemplating "bear unwelcome mats" which I found described on the internet.

Thank you!

After a long absence (except for one December firewood expedition), I finally got to the land.

Just a few hours on a Saturday, to get most of the siding on the final wall.

There are many projects that I hope to get to this season:

-Insulation
-Flooring
-Stove & Stovepipe
-Retractable Staircase
-Final siding details
-Eaves & Fascia
-Deck & steps
-Finishing odds & ends
-Well (the old one dried up - too shallow I think).

Those are the main projects.
