About done!

We are almost done! The steel needs to be put up on the roof, some windows and a door needs to be finished, and the staircase to the loft needs to be built. Then the cabin is 100% livable!

About time too. The RV is just a generally unpleasant experience. I'm dissatisfied with almost every element of it. In a couple of days we start transitioning over to the cabin, which shouldn't be that difficult of a deal. It's cold enough outside still for an ice chest to be used as a fridge. Battery lanterns can take the place of interior lights for a brief time (until solar is arranged), and as soon as the water platform is complete we can get a toilet inside. How easy is that?

I'll try to get some pictures up tomorrow.

I'm glad to see your cabin is almost finished. I just found your blog tonight and I had to go back and read every post on the cabin (and many of your older posts). Hopefully you'll get it finished up soon and be able to get out of the RV.

I saw from a couple of older posts that you are an aspiring knifemaker. Take a look at my knifemaking website when you get a break from the construction.
