I feel like we say this with each step of the build, but the cabin is really starting to take shape as we complete the loft floor joists, and raise the 24 foot column that will support our 2 ridge beams.

As we are working hard to get our house dried in, we call in for some help from friends. Our friend Cameron comes to help us so that we can raise our center column in a safer way. This takes up the first portion of this episode. As you saw in the last episode, we attempted to raise the center column, but just couldn’t figure out how to do it in a safe way. After a lot of brainstorming, we think we have figured out the safest way to raise this tall column.

Next. we take on completing the floor joists for our cabin loft. What should be a quick and simple project is quickly halted when we get to the portion of our floor joists that will support our cantilevered balcony. These floor joists must pass through the back log wall. It seems simple enough but cutting the log wall and dealing with bowed lumber makes the job a little tougher than it needs to be.

And now a little back story on us, in case you just found us on YouTube. We’re Sara and Ryan. We are your average suburban family, but 9 years ago, we purchased a raw piece of land in the Hood Canal in Washington. We’ve been developing this piece of property slowly, and this year we knew it was time to go all in. So we purchased a log cabin kit home and decided that 2020 would be the year we built a house on our property. We plan to build this cabin (as much as we can) on our own.

Unfortunately, COVID-19 put a delay on our cabin kit being produced and delivered in the time frame we had originally planned. While we could have just waited it out and pushed back starting on the build of our home, we decided to shift gears and change our course for the time being. We purchased a 30 foot yurt, and will be setting it up as additional living space when we begin to build our cabin.

In the summer of 2021, we FINALLY moved to the Hood Canal so we could start the build of our future home. While we are building our home, we are living in a camper trailer and the yurt that we built in the summer of 2020. We hope to have our cabin kit home built by the summer of 2022. Just my husband and I are building the house. We get help here and there from friends along the way and we do plan to get help on the roof but other than that we are doing it all on our own.

Follow along with us as we build our dream in the Hood Canal.
