Default Cabin progress

Millman and I will be trying to get this cabin dried in over the next two weeks.
We are pre-cutting and doing as much as we can at home. We'll be hauling all of the materials down next weekend.

We hope to have it completely finished before deer season.

Even though it is only 24X24 it should comfortably sleep five people with the loft.

With only two of us hunting this ranch we are thinking we may need some help taking out management deer and enough does. We want to make sure our guests will be comfortable.

We started the cabin this week. We had it dried in in 2.5 days. Whew?
Still have a lot to do on it. Windows, R-panel on the roof trim and stain. Then on to the inside.
It has a loft and two bedrooms. It should sleep 6 comfortably.

Default A little more progress

Made it down to the ranch last weekend.
Ronny was kind enough to transport my ranch truck down so I can stop scratching up my everyday truck.

Got a couple of feed pens up. (If anyone needs advice on putting T post in solid rock PM me)

Got one side of the cabin completely trimmed out.

Did a little pig hunting.

Seen a group of Aoudad about five miles from the gate. Hopefully we get a few coming thru from time to time.

Last 12 months have been about as stressful as I ever want to see again.... Going thru the heck that came with buying the ranch then building the house of dreams, to building this cabin. Just one of these things at a time would have been enough. 2 weeks away from sleeping at a new address tho and I am still alive.

Time to slow it down a notch and enjoy.

Got another 200 sq ft of high ceiling up and the last piece of rake trim on the metal roof.

Trail cam's are out and all the feeders are topped off. Things are green and it doesn't look like the mature bucks are moving much......but I will take the green over deer movement any day in July.
