Default Cabin build

Purchased 14 acres in December 2019 in Oklahoma. I have been hunting a wma there the last 12 years and wanted a place close to build a cabin.

The 14 acres has rural water and electric close so it's the perfect spot. It is bordered on 2 sides by public land that has great deer hunting as well as lake access.

My plans so far include:
Clear cabin site
Food plots
Road
Build cabin (800 sf 2 bed 2 bath)
Utility installation.
Septic

My construction experience is slim so play along. Pretty much working every Sunday on the place with help of a couple friends.

I will be watching as well. Looks like a beautiful place in the woods to get away. What did you use to clear the road and cabin site? I see machine tracks on the ground, and I love equipment.

Got it extended to full length and subfloor laid down. Supposed to rain the next 6 of 7 days so made sure and cover it all before I left.
Walls should be going up next weekend.

Drew up a floor plan when I got home. Got all plumbing in a line on 1 wall so that should make it easy.

This covid stuff really slowed us down with social distancing and all. Besides that I was sick myself for last 2 weeks and still not over it completely.

So I commissioned a little help and just had a metal building put up on our foundation.

Also found a dead buck.
