I started work on the cabin in mid-July 2007. It has no practical purpose, except enjoyment, which started with its construction.
The cabin's dimensions are 11' x 18', with a main room of about 11' x 12', leaving a 6' x 6' storeroom at the north end and an entry passage beside it.
Framing is all 2" x 6" fir, except for the gable framing (2" x 4") and one partition wall (2" x 8").
Siding is 1" x 6" rough-sawn cedar. The walls are insulated with one-inch rigid foam insulation, and the interior walls are 1" x 6" fir. There is no sheetrock. The interior gables are of maple, bought rough-sawn, then sanded and stained.
There is power but no plumbing.
Windows tip out at the top. They are used multi-pane windows.
The loft is for play, mostly by kids, and accessible by ladder. The whole building is for play by adults.
The roof is metal over 1" x 6" fir. There is one inch of rigid foam insulation on top of the wood and under the metal.
The exterior gables are cedar shingled.
In July 2012, just before we moved to our new house in SW Portland, we had the cabin moved from our old property to the property of our neighbors and good friends, Deb and Jen. There we laid down a foundation of packed gravel for the 6"x6" skids on which the cabin rests. It still has power. We visit it often.
I've taken pictures along the way, and they are below, in reverse order.
