Closing In On Complete

I'm almost done with my cabin. This past weekend, unable to wait for it to be completed, I went ahead and moved in once I had the roof done. It feels pretty amazing to sleep in a cabin that you've built.

With the roof attached, I'm working on covering the gaps between my roof and the tops of my walls and weatherproofing my walls. And a door. I need to build a door.

Coming along...

So I haven't been extremely consistent in posting. This is most likely due to the fact that as I make more and more progress, I want to spend less and less time away from the cabin and my work.

My dad came to visit this past weekend. His timing was immaculate and I finished with my walls while he was here and cut my doorway. I've got the wood for the floor and most of the wood for the roof. Hopefully, by the end of the week I'll be able to stay in it. Hopefully.
The doorway's a little short, but it serves its purpose. (If you need proof that my budget's tight, notice the duct tape on my boot. I've been holding it together with duct tape since the beginning of February. Classy to the last.)
