Thankfully, benches are not terribly expensive or difficult to place by the water; I figure the hammock will be for younger guests, while I enjoy the view from my more easily used seating option. I'm never formal, so the lounge works. I'll be flexible on most of the other choices.

There are some really good options for the kitchen, though I'd love to see a design layout. While I like the look of the up cycled hull, it looks more like a saloon than a kitchen in the photo we are shown; I like something a bit more traditional in the world of cabinetry. As for the choice between the pull out pantry and the coffee station, I am truly torn. I prefer a shallow depth pantry set-up to the fancier pull outs, and I love the coffee station, but I never seem to have enough storage in the kitchen for my canned or boxed foods; tough choice. I read some of the arguments for both of the splash designs. Both styles present challenges for someone wanting to keep them clean, I like tile for most of the kitchen, but prefer a smooth surface behind the stove top, no grout lines to scrub. No campaigning from me, for any of the choices, just a few observations. Carry on!

Drop-ins are easier to set, usually less expensive to purchase, but create issues for cleaning around the edges. I like an under-mounted sink for ease of clean up on the counter top.

Well, thank you Dylan, a standard shower head will do nicely. Now, when I might win, I'll need an area about 5' x 8' for my aforementioned infrared sauna, somewhere near a shower will do.

You are correct about cool humidity; I've encountered it at New London, CT. At 32 degrees, the humid sea air felt like zero. I did say that I enjoy an infrared sauna (dry heat, opposed to steam).

Your idea of cold and mine are insanely different; on it's coldest days, Florida is quite warm by my standards, after all, I've slept in a tent (without a heater) at minus 33 degrees. I recognize the allure of the luxury item, just never felt the need for it; I prefer an infrared sauna, followed by a standard shower.

When I looked at the choices, I wondered where the standard shower head was (I am a simple, old school guy).

I don't understand the steam shower in the warm and humid climate of Florida; otherwise my votes seem to line up with the majority, for the first time in many cabin votes.

I've cast a vote for four choices that are likely to be the losers, oh well. I, like others, spend most my blogging on design and layout; I'm waiting with baited breath.

I am loving that all of the interior structure has already been opened up. My mind has taken flight with ideas for this wonderful blank canvas. I do hope that the metal roof will remain after all of the work is done (the sound of rain on a metal roof is very relaxing). The view of the lake is amazing, and large floor to ceiling windows would be awesome in the main living areas.
