Small Timber Frame Shabin

Here are some pictures of our cabin that we built this past fall. I bought the land 8 years ago and i'm just now finding the time and money to make this dream a reality. We pre-cut and assembled the entire frame in the shop first.
I had my local shed builder build and deliver the 13'-5" x 28' insulated floor to my shop.
We then reassembled the frame on the platform. And sheathed it with 1 x 12 t&g pine. We also added 1" rigid foam insulation on top of the sheathing. The roof will get two layers of 1" insulation board with the seams staggered.
One week after the floor was delivered to my shop, our cabin was being delivered to our property in Sullivan County. After a couple of hours we had the trusses set and ready for sheathing.
We busted our butts and got it weather tight in one weekend.
My cousin and I went up this past weekend and installed the windows and doors.
The living/bedroom.
Kitchen is on the left, bathroom on the right will be enclosed by more 1x12 pine and include a composting toilet. The loft will get a small window.
The next trip will include installing the composting toilet, wood stove and painting the floor. You might not think that 1" of insulation on the walls and 2" on the roof would be enough insulation to keep it warm, but we have been heating it with a big buddy propane heater and it gets too hot to sleep in the loft. The nice thing about this method of construction is there's no fiberglass or drywall and very little interior trim to deal with.

Nice looking cabin. Anxious to see the exterior finished.
