Beautiful cabins Blue, and Az!

I think drywall, or sheetrock, or gypsum board, does work as an indicator that a cabin is not so much a cabin as small house. A cabin should be wooden, inside and out, and a little rough around the edges with a wood-stove in it.

But then, that's rather cabin-snobbish isn't it? We can't all afford fine wooden interiors in our cabins. What was once the affordable way to build a cabin: out of whatever trees are nearby, is only an option now-a-days for those with specialized knowledge about rustic, do-it-yourself milling: a kind of skill that is unknown to most people. The new affordable is stick-framed out of 2x out of lumber salvaged off a job-site! That's what your common person can handle these days.

Sure, my "small house" will have running water, and electricity, and heating perhaps, and dry-wall inside, and it's secluded but not in the middle of wilderness. Does that mean it doesn't deserve to be called a cabin? I don't think so. I think my stubborn refusal to use nailguns and my insistence on hand-carving the eaves and my having to carry all the materials up through the orchard from the drive-way and the general do-it-by-myself ethos (an ethos of necessity mostly) means that the building is in spirit more of a cabin than any more beautiful, isolated structure that some yahoo with more money than sense over-paid some company to come in and slap together so that said yahoo could have a place to shoot elk from and bang his mistresses during the holidays.

Besides, a proper cabin is erected, that's the important part. It doesn't matter if you use the finest of cedars, or the sturdiest of oak, and build the thing in the middle of the most pristine of forests. There's still no guarantee with all those fancy materials and locations that you're going to end up with a really satisfying erection, and that's exactly what I'm on my way to getting here! So there!

If you built it yourself and it's in the woods, it's definitely a cabin. Nod And though cabins may have an exalted subset of log cabins you've still earned the right to call it a cabin.

The fascia is up, and I finished the roof just in time for a week of rain. Note: most of the cabin is not yet painted. Also, there will be a door eventually.

Hey neat Az, I just watched a movie the other night about a Canadian folk painter who lived to be a little old lady in a little old house: covered inside with all her art!

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3721954/

Sally Hawkins and Ethan Hawke are both very good in it.


Norc, I'd say this is the place for it if you do have a picture.

That's looking really good, Forrest! Now if you just wink at some suitable old lady painter you can get everything you want!

Eh, it's the same as before. Plumbing and electrical have to be done before anything else inside is going to change much. I'm not a plumber or an electrician, but I'll get it done eventually.

Wait, what's the silvery stuff on the roof before you put in the insulation? Can't be drywall type stuff because that would be used to cover the insulation from below.

it's rigid foam-board insulation with a vapor barrier against the roof boards. then he's got an airspace to let the roof breath and to run his wires. then the spun fiberglass insulation below. it should be really cozy in that loft at night with a good fire in the stove below!

right forest? nice job!
