It would be sad to lose a great view, can you think something up ?

Anything's possible! (With enough money...)

I'm going to have a large rectangular window in the rake wall (the end wall) at the back of the loft. You can see the rough opening of it in the wide-angle picture. 

But, to keep some of that nice view out the front of the house, I think I'm going to add a dormer window -- you know, one of these puppies* -- to the front of the cabin. That gives me more room in the attic, more light, and more view.

Nice to see how things are progressing. I gather the last photo is not actually your cabin????

Wait, you'll add a dormer in the front where there's no loft? That's kind of different. Or is the loft on the side rather than the back? Or both? I'm so confused.

Ok, I see in the wide view the loft is in back with the upper rectangular window. A dormer window away from the loft would mean you are looking up through the window, which may provide light but no view. Mebbe you want two - one in the loft for space and view, and one in front for extra light?

Or maybe by front you mean the side facing downhill, 90 degrees from what looks to be the front entrance?

Oh lordy, what I meant was that there is currently space for a window in the wall on the end of the cabin where the loft is: you can see the framing for it in some of the pictures.

In addition, I'm going to add a Dormer in the roof on the downhill side of the house in such a way that if I stand in the loft I can look directly out the dormer window and the dormer will be adding to the head-room in the loft. 

So, bird's eye view:

Oh goodness no, that's just a stock photo of some dormers.

So you were referring to the downhill side as the front. Sensible, especially if you stick a porch on that side.

It's been so long since I updated this thread!

I guess it goes to show my lack of progress. Embarassed

Anyway, these are from a couple weeks ago. I've pretty much finished the roof sheathing since then:

You can see the dormer!
The Great Cabin Erection! - Page 4 23893314568_7fde5730c0_c

The plywood has a radiant barrier on the inside to help with insulation.
The Great Cabin Erection! - Page 4 37075646443_7748bd82f4_c

I'm not looking forward to the roofing because it's pretty steep. I have a safety harness that I can kind of hang from, so maybe I'll just try and work on it like that.
The Great Cabin Erection! - Page 4 37075650363_558a42a34f_c

The kitchen, looking out:
The Great Cabin Erection! - Page 4 37075659253_ee78661b7a_c

Looking up through the front door. The bedroom is upstairs, the bathroom beneath and to the right, and the kitchen off to the left.
The Great Cabin Erection! - Page 4 37075662453_baf70bf46c_c

Apparently the house has been swarmed by dry-wood termites looking to start new colonies. I have a special hatred for termites, so I went and bought several gallons of a borate solution that, supposedly, makes wood inedible for termites and other pests as well as mildew. You paint or spray it onto interior wood and it then soaks in. I really hope it works, or at least that it makes me think it works so that I can just pretend that there aren't termites in the walls. Mad

You can see their stupid little discarded wings all over the place.  :facepalm:

Oh, and the siding came pre-painted that colour. I'm pretty sure I'm going to repaint it later.

In all seriousness that's really impressive work, Forest.

A good erection must be preceded by plenty of mental imagery....err...planning. That's the key.
