Default Finally, live log cabin build!!

I love it!
If my plan comes together, I'll be doing the same thing in Ennis, Montana with my son the builder in 3 years. I like the door with the star- pride like that is a rare thing in America. Have a great Easter tomorrow.

Got the balcony base done today. Still have to finished porches and roof on front side and deck that half of the house as well. And then roof over the balcony and finish framing the upstairs interior and stairs themselves. Probably going to finish their part this week sometime.








Here is the underside of the balcony. That's some serious beams!!

Here's from the balcony looking out

Got the front porch roof up and decked, along with the main part of the roof.





Also got the south gable end covered with the cedar batten board and finished the overhang. Makes it look much more complete!!

Final walk through went great!! Even got my buddy to frame the fireplace to prep for the insert.























Next week the triangular gable glass will get framed on the exterior, insert and chimney pipe will be installed and the exterior wood will be power washed, stained, and sealed.

Does the insert have venting piped to outside air to draw in cold air to burn and go up the chimney instead of drawing warm room air? I had one like that with glass doors and a blower fan and it was amazing how much heat it generated without drawing out room air. Got a built-in for a gun safe?

Impressive...congrats on an awesome place to have many great future memories. I really like the overall design and look and character of the home.

Question: What type of final roofing are you going with, metal or composition? I'd also be interested in ballpark price of the build. I realize you're going to do most of the interior finish yourself.

Again, congrats!

Most of the outside of the house has been stained, it just needs to be sealed. We also got the fireplace finished except for the rock and mantle. The plumbers will finish setting roof vents Monday and then the roof will be put on this week. Then it will be all up to us to have everything else done from there on out.

That is amazing!!!!!!!

I hate to be nosy but how much per sq ft for something like that? Not exactly what yours is, but a range of what one could expect to pay per foot.
