Here is the next round. We completed the beams the flooring will rest on. The frame was completed at this point and was squared up and we started to lay the plywood floor over rigid insulation. Also, I included a picture of the Boss making sure we don't screw up, aka my Grandma .

I have helped build a few camps, I think I enjoy that as much as the hunting out of it. If my health wasn't compromised I would be happy to load up my tools and head out and help you build.. Oh well dream on..

Tater, glad to see a view of more photos of your project. Thanks for sharing. Nothing like family with great toys and the experience to operate same. Pass them an Iron City for me. Seriously, looking great.

Plan on LED lights where applicable. The average "Flood" lights run for 10,000 hours and draw significantly less than a normal bulb. Same for the interior. Did it to my place and it was well worth the investment. Get the "contractor Pack" at lowes or HD.

Composting toilet, good to go, as long as it is one with a good reputation. Goggle search for sure.

Insulation, what do you plan to do there. I might have a supplier who has the latest and greatest stuff to do same. Used it on my place and the materials are darn near perfect. Let me know if you are interested and I'll get you a contact number.

Keep up the great work and enjoy....

Great Pics! It is moving along.

What size cabin are you building?

Traditions only last if you pass them down to your kids!

Chaos-Thanks for the heads up on picking up LED lights, I will definitely look into those. As far as insulation, it is already insulated. I am just slowing loading the pictures so I don't do an overload of photos . Thanks for the offer thought, I appreciate it. We picked up a nature's head composting toilet. I have watched a lot of videos and read a bunch of reviews. I hope it turns out as good as everyone says it is.

The cabin is 20x36. After we finished and started to work on the inside we wish we would have a little wider, but oh well, it will work. Most of the time it will just be three of us there.

Round four! These show the floor being completed and the start of building the walls. This was our first weekend spending the night at the cabin, it was quite cold for an August night, I believe it was about 44 degrees when we woke up. My dad drew the short straw and built the fire in the morning. The night picture was our first campfire and I had to install my favorite part, the hammock

Your build is looking great, really like following along with all the pictures. I have a question about the floor insulation, since it is foam board, is there any concern that it will slowly crush and then the plywood become loose. Keep the pics coming.
