    Thought I'd post a couple pics of our cabin build in progress. She'll be about 1200 sq feet (including loft) We're only a couple days away from the roof install then will be installing our new PE super step top.

    Great views. Looks isolated - how close to neighbours?
    Peaceful porch, warm cabin, setting sun - you could do a Mastercard commercial.
    Happy burning.

    That sure is a beautiful cabin. What type of foundation did you use? May you and your family have many years and many happy times there. Let us know how the stove heats her up.

    Hi and Thank-You,

    We used a floating foundation, gravel bed with railroad ties. Insulated crawl space with vapor barrier. A high water table , other wise we may have opted for pilings but would have had to go down very deep. So far so good though. Our PE Super 27 keeps her very very toasty even at -25 c, sometimes too toasty lol. Looking forward to some winter time fun now.

    Cheers,

    That looks wonderful. Well done.

    I'm betting that chimney gets cleaned from the bottom up

    Went out to the cabin this past weekend to relax. Thought I'd share a couple pics of our toasty warm cabin. Of course my better half just had to put up a Christmas tree (-:

    Thanks Dennis, it does hit the spot for sure, especially when its -25c and frosty and the warmth from the wood stove just feels so good. There is something very satisfying when walking inside a cabin heated with wood. We look forward in trying to get there every weekend.

    Cheers,

    Thanks all,

    Yes it is hard to leave after wards. Ice fishing, sledding, snow shoeing are a blast. We are lake side so access is easy. Sledding to the local pub across the lake is a must (-:, ice fishing and knowing that toasty looking cabin is just waiting for you is great!
