Looks like things are set for me and a buddy to go up tomorrow and wire up the cabin and also get it ready for a mini-split AC system that Airehead is going to install soon. Can't wait.

Got everything dine except tying in new panel on cabin to the existing breaker box. Forgot to take pics after all plugs , switches, fixtures put in. Got about 9 outlets inside, 3 outside, outside light over deck, water heater and AC wires ready to go, AC disconnect, and more. Long day yesterday.















Hopefully can finish up soon and then start on plumbing.

Thanks guys! Put in several hours today working on our section of the private road and putting in some insulation in the cabin. Got most of the outlets and switches done with a few other things. Still haven't tied the new breaker box on the cabin into the main power. Should be another week or two. Got a hunt coming up thurs-sat so won't get to go up there.

Insulation was put in random pattern. Couldn't do the corners because I have to frame them out to make a true 90 corner to attach the walls properly. Need a few more rolls to finish up.

Had about 50 tons of 1"-3" steel slag brought in Friday. Spent a few hours spreading it out, filling in low spots, and trying to put a crown on the road. I probably need a few more loads to do it right but it looks 100% better and much smoother.

Here's a short video of the piles the truck left me to work with. He was supposed to spread it out evenly down the road but had some technical difficulties with his dump trailer.
