well i got up early and went to the lumber store and got a load of materials. I picked up some concrete backer board for under the stove and behind it, I got my 12ft 2×4’s for the ceiling joists in the bunkroom, and 3 more rolls of insulation to finish up the small spaces in the walls.  I am doing all the work using only hand tools except for my cordless drill, all the wood is being cut using a hand saw and a mitre box as you will see in some of the pics. I got the bunkroom wall built, the ceiling joists in and the stove is set, just have to do the outside chimney pipe. here are some pics of the progress to this point.

well i started insulating the cabin walls, and took my triple wall chimney kit up there as well as the stove. I will install the chimney this weekend when i have a whole day to work on it.  Then i will start on  the wall between the bunkroom and the main space. I also have to add some ceiling  joists so i can insulate it. here are a few pics so far.

Well finally after all the mixups the cabin finally made it today.  Since it snowed all night and day we had to call a wrecker to come and winch the truck up the hill to where the cabin was to be placed. After winching and freezing our butts off in 12 degree cold it is finally in place.  They spent about 2 1/2 hours leveling it up and getting it set. here is a pic or two of the process

still waiting

well due to a mixup on the paperwork, the cabin has still not arrived. I called to check on it this past wednesday and it was just being built, and the walls were going on it. Hopefully it will be here tomorrow because i am getting very anxious. One good thing is the price was wrong on the paperwork and i get it for about $300 cheaper. If it shows up tomorrow i will have pics and post them here.
