The cabin door is hung!
I finally decided that it was time to get the proper cabin door installed. Now that door is fully framed inside and out, I started by placing 3/4" cedar around the entire rough opening.
This process took quite awhile and it took hours of hand planing to remove enough wood to get a workable opening for the door.
While I was planing the cedar door jambs, Peter and Sadie came over to help for awhile. They helped by mounting a deadbolt into my custom made ledge and batten door:
I really appreciated their help, as it shaved a couple hours off the project. It turned out great!
Next, I installed the pintles into the door jamb. These are custom-made wrought iron pintles from blacksmiths at Horton Brasses. They hold large wrought iron strap hinges. I mortised these pintles into the door jamb, and I think it turned out nicely.
I then hung the door! Sounds simple, but it took some time.
Here is a view of the closed door from the exterior.
And the door when it sits open:
The black deadbolt turned out to be a nice and simple solution. I still need to attach a handle to the door.

Getting this door hung and locked seems like a major milestone in this cabin project!
