It's hard on the hands, honestly, getting something of this size erect. But when you're actually in the midst of it, gripping your tool and hammering away like a piston, it's hard to beat the pure physical satisfaction.

Guys guys, as Forest legal representative, I must insist we not inadvertently besmirch Forest good name or reputation. I am sure his conscience is as clean as the whitest snow. Nod

Who said anything besmirching? It's all been complementary that I can see.

It's all implied, m'lud', something the young people nowadays refer to as slang, or colloquialism. Nod

Now there is absolutely nothing shameful in a young lad "gripping his tool and hammering away like a piston", as they say. All completely normal activity.

Just had a delicate thought. Are you putting in a, uh...water closet? Not totally needed with the great outdoors, except maybe your great outdoors tends to fill up with snow.

Definitely vertical anyway!


I have plans for a shower, sink, and toilet in the downstairs. I was considering a composting toilet, but there isn't space underneath so that it would have to be one that uses a small amount of water. Water is not your friend when it comes to composting toilets, so I might just run a line down to the septic tank. I don't know. I'll deal with it later!

They are a pestilence! Anyway, do you go camping at this cabin? Is it off in some secluded wilderness spot or something?

Often, yes, but it is more like a house. It is in a forest on a hill by a lake, not wilderness per se, but def nature. Smile

Ah, so with the plumbing it will be a true abode, not just a writer's shed or the like.

Indeed!

I've been side-tracked by a time-intensive job on the cabin. I wanted to add some scandinavian flavour, so I've been carving a kind of sea-dragon or something into the fascia.

An early close-up:


(Don't mind the goods drying in the background!)


Almost done here:




It's based on the eaves on the Hove Church in Sogn og Fjordane County, Norway.

Wow! Shocked

I like the drying herbs pipeweed in the background.  Very medieval as well.

Just primer for now. I didn't want to screw it up in place until I had painted it, and I couldn't paint it until I picked out a colour theme for the entire building. I'm now thinking the dragon-y thing is going to be red on a green background. Sort of a brick red on olive green kind of thing. Kind of like this:

I doubt the, aherm, pipeweed of yore was quite so... potent (or big-flowered!)
