Distracted at 17, sounds a bit normal. It's looking good. A good chance you will get it closed in before winter.

It was pointed out many times this summer by her mother and I that she might want to be a little more active on her house if she wanted a roof by winter, and now that it mid November,  I think she realizes we were right, but she is starting to get excited and has become more and more intuitive and independent in her work around the mill and times  I’m not around.  Shes the one that pushed for the work lights and to keep going into the evening.   She is coming into her own and figuring out some of life’s lessons on procrastination but also the value of work which has been beyond priceless.   As her time in high school is coming to a close this has been a fantastic project.

That is a great father/daughter project.  Is this going to be her home when she graduates?  What are the dimensions/square footage?  I would love to see some overall pictures of the the building site.  It looks like there is quite a bit of cantilever to the site.  Is it offering some special views?

Inquiring minds want to know.

Made some good progress over break with my daughter and I have to say this has been a great experience.  The footprint is 13x22. Siding will be angled 1x10 boards for shear with 4”batts.   The  roof decking will probably be a pile of used T-111 I have kicking around.  I will have to take some pics of the view.  It overlooks a tiny pond, garden and barn.

I appreciate it this.  20-20 hindsight would have changed a few things, including this, but there will be a cap/loft on a fair bit of it which will tie the front wall to the back in much the same way.Also the exterior sheathing will tie it all together.   Based on your feedback here, I will make more connections in a more meaningful way than I otherwise would have.  

Thanks.

I was going to suggest a "plant shelf" to act as a built up beam, the loft will do a better job of that. I like the scallop on the tails

Plant beam has a nice ring to it though.  I asked her if she wanted to do a detail on the end and at first she wasn’t that interested but then really got into it.  She cut them all herself with a jigsaw.  I wish I took a picture of that.
