Here are a few photos showing some progress on the cabin.  

The porch floor is white oak, the porch floor joists and roof joists/sheathing. are pine. The b&b siding is pine.  All of it is off my mill.
  
Heís done a great job with it so far.  

Siding needs to get finished, interior insulation and paneling need to be completed.   But heís waiting for his cash reserves to build up a bit before Christmas.

 :D The Tyvek is installed at an angle so it runs moisture to one side.   :D

The cabin looks great. :) I woulda done the porches a little different so my neck and steps stay dry in rain and more slope in case water wants to back up with 4" snow and ice melting on it. Don't like a roof shedding water where I gotta walk into the place. ;D

Hey, it's not my cabin, so what do I know? :D :D

Thatís the same thinking Iíve had to use.   Thereís things I would have done differently too, but it isnít mine. 

My buddy has learned and is learning lots of things.   I see a gutter above the steps in the future. 

But Iíve decided to be happy for my buddy that a very longtime dream is coming true for him.

I like those wide porches they will help that cabin last and be a great place to have a cup of coffee. :)

I kinda had the same situation with my steps so....


 



 I added a "stoop" that extends out over my steps to keep them dry.
