I've made some more progress on the windows, interior, and exterior siding. I've now got all but the large South picture window installed. The woodstove and hearth are installed and working. This project is close to being finished!
Here is a view of the Northwest corner of the cabin. You can see the windows, wood stove an hearth:
A close-up of the Jotul wood stove and hearth. The hearth is made from a monolithic slab of sedimentary stone, 3" thick and weighing close to 350lbs! It makes a great hearth for the stove and looks great. I've found that its hard to go wrong when you're building with real timber, stone, and iron...
The East wall is getting stud framed, and should be done with only a few more hours of work. I started by framing out the window cavities and hanging the windows. The top window is for the loft. Both of these windows are new, inexpensive single-hung windows that match the windows on the West wall. You can also see that the North side of the building is completely sided now:
From the inside, the stove pipe is centered between the two West windows:
From below, you can see the light coming in via the two East windows and the doorway:
Here is the assembled cedar log bed up in the loft. I've got things covered in plastic until the sawdust settles down. :-)
Here you can see the loft window relative to the cedar bed:
From the loft, looking down at the wood stove, stone hearth, and Western windows. This cabin is now cheery and well-lit, and the rough opening for the biggest, South-facing window is not even cut yet!
Several more days of work to go. Hopefully the weather will hold. I am nearly certain that I will be unable to side the South wall as I am running out of salvaged and weathered board and batten siding. That will most likely have to wait until next year.
