  • post pics of yours

    Lets see what your cabins look like. For those of you have already accompished what the rest of us are thinking about, How about sharing some pictures of you pride and joy. It would be nice if you would include an outside shot and a couple of inside shots to show the ammenities. If you would mind sharing a little personal info, How much did it cost you and how long ago? (Have to think about inflation)

            I've been "building it" for four years now. I will let you know the cost when I'm finished.

                Bought it a couple of years ago, we don't discuss the price for tax purposes. Power is gen set, water is 5gal jugs, outhouse around back. Up stairs was unfinished and no flooring down. Next big thing is propane fridge.

                    I still have alot of work to do but it is coming along. I started with just a old 12 by 12 cabin that was just built on the ground they gave it to me when i bought the land i jacked it up and put a new roof built a deck then decided it was to small. I built onto the back 12 by 16 with a loft with stick wood. then i cut a 7 ft square hole in the back of the log cabin.
                    The inside of the new cabin is 6inch pine toung and grove. its going to be fairly nice when its done the combanation of logs and regular wood is nice looking on the inside. I also put in a door up in the loft and built a deck over the log cabin part. I wanted the door so if there was ever a fire i could get out then the idea of a deck for a place to drink a beer sounded great. I have 400 ft of lake front and its so nice to sit on the upper deck and see the lake.......................
                    This is a older picture of the add on. iI have a railing made of split logs and new flashing.

                        Does anyone know how to stick frame the loft deck/roof? I read that you can only cantilever 1/3 of the length of the deck. I assume that that rule is only if not supported. I love the idea!!!

                        Thanks,

                          Cantilever

                          I suppose it depends on what material is used and how the fixed end is supported. I cantilevered my upper deck out 5 feet using a long log on the 14th round. I decided to support it with burled spruce, mostly for looks but also because you can never tell where people are going to end up when we are having a "good time". I didn't want to take any chances that it might break.
                          I also have a 130 watt PV panel that charges a 135 aH AGM deep cycle battery. It powers a 12v stereo, water pump for running water, a couple of 12v lights and a small inverter to run the tv/dvd. I also have a small (2500w) generator for back-up. I make it more comfortable every time I'm there....

                              Heaven

                              Our newly aquired little piece of heaven. Needs a little work but that is half the fun. This forum rocks by the way. I have learned more in the short amount of time that it has been up than in all years past.
