Scott...

I still like the lake house idea, but my wife shot me down. She is convinced we would have multitudes of cottonmouths sunning on the deck outside the house. She runs when she even sees a picture of one, so needless to say, she wants the house away from the pond.

Hi,

Once again technology rules...

Mike Otto wanted me to let everyone on the forum know that he has had a major crash in his email system and webpage server and he can't use either at this time. He is working furiously to try and correct the problem and will be back on the forum as soon as he can. You can contact Mike at the office 1-940-665-2258 or 800-882-3478 from 8 am- 12 noon, Mon-Fri.

Ezylman- too bad about the cottonmouths. Luckily, we don't have snake problems where we're at in Kansas. A few water snakes here and there, but that's about it. If we did, I'm sure the cabin would be well up on shore.

Got the cabin wrapped in Tyvek, and the Hardie board on it. Also, got the windows and doors on it. Painting should start in the next few days. Also, the metal roof should start Thursday. Then we'll head into the decking part of things. The fireplaces are in and we're picking up them up on Thursday morning. They are 42" Rumfords and will be placed at the far ends (one on the inside and one on the porch). We have to pick them up and haul them in a trailer to the cabin. -and they only weigh a zillion pounds each..........

Scott

That truly is a magnificant cabin.

Here is California we can't build withing 100 feet of the pond. So my house is gonna be 101 feet from the pond.

You are building that cabin with first class materials Scott. Hardie board siding and metal roofing. That cabin should really hold up.

Reading about that restriction makes me wonder WHY? \:o \:o

Is the California Fire dept. afraid you would possibly save your own home in a fire if a water source is near?


BTW Very cool cabin?

Rainman, In California you learn very quickly to stop asking why regulations exist. Otherwise you will drive yourself crazy - trust me.

Scott...

Look into doing spray foam insulation compared to doing fiberglass bats. The spray between joists, rafter, and studs to make an airtight envelope. It also is very compatible with vaulted ceilings and metal roofs. If it is an option where the cabin is located, it should decrease your energy consumption by 60% or more. Just a thought.

icenune is great stuff we just did it. It cost more but will save you in the long run. The roofers and other locals thought we were crazy for not letting the roof breathe. Wife did all the research. I just found this thread. VERY NICE layout.

Guys- Thanks for the tips on insulation. We will definitely check it out.

Today we had the painter come in and get the base painted and caulked. The decking will start tomorrow, weather permiting.

Also, the roofing crew came in and got the roof installed.

The exterior is getting close....

First That may have been the worst day that I actually worked in.

You guys did a great job. The best picture was the young man jumping in the water. That is what we are all about.

I just had to go through this all again from the start. I am thoroughly impressed...and oh, so envious. You've got a place to decompress for the rest of your lives.

Truly beautiful...

Grand opening was a few weeks back. We had family and friends out July 3rd for fireworks off the island. It was a great time. We put down sheets of plywood on the deck so we could walk around.

Lot's of little stuff has been done the past few weeks. Kind of the touch up stuff. Had the inspection today and only had one minor item. The primer coat of paint has been applied and the painter should finish the final coat this week. The color will be Stone 2112-40. The guys are putting up the posts for the deck. We are going to run cable railing horizontally, instead of vertical spindles/rails.-like what you see on a boat. Once finished, they will start the decking.

Scott

Just got back from vacation and got a chance to run out and see the cabin. -unfortunately for only 1 1/2 hours as I've got business travel first thing in the morning. Would have loved to have spent the night there! Painter is finished and deck is 90% complete. Remaining exterior: Windows on each side of the chimney (Lake side), paint the doors, and add the cabling to the rail posts.

-Scott

PS- Also, got our second fish feeder going..... Cats and Bass were hammering the food (AquaMax600)!!!!!

Very nice. It sure filled up in a hurry(envy). Noticed the bois d'arc & locust trees. Might check forum on unwanted plants in case your not wild about trees with 4-8" spikes around where those young folks will be playing..the locust trees that is..
Stupid me, didn't see the last 4 pages before posting.. unbelievable no one will want to post any of their projects after this.
