First thank you for the wonderful pictorial update of the construction progress. The write up and captions really provide a great explanation of the whys to make the pictures more meaningful. Looks like this will be the ultimate "cabin in the woods". Thanks for excellent design, progress and detailed updates.

Since there will likely be acoustic absorption on some of the ceiling it would be nice if there was r-15 insulation in walls to isolate noise sources from "quiet" places like bedrooms and office/den areas.

Doubt that you could get one like that for less than 600k USD. With all of that teak decking I can imagine that the rest of the appointments are top notch and that even in fresh water it requires a lot of maintenance.

Completely off topic. First Welcome to the war of words and ideas. Will appreciate your input, especially on items that are questions or suggestions. Might be overwhelming at first, but hopefully you have am intern who could help you. Second, can you arrange for the winner to get a ride or two on that beautiful sailboat as passenger or as crew? Thanks for listening.

Thank you. That was a pretty big hole for a septic tank. I guess that was what was required for that location. Thank you again.

Just something else to winterize to protect it if you leave during the winter for a couple of weeks to get some warmth and sunshine.

J guess that the critics of the cabin design have never lived in WV, VA, NC, GA, TN, etc. where the original cabins were built back in the day. I realize that it is not the norm, but some pretty "cabins" show up in some of the real estate shows about AK. Not a critic of your opinions, just wanted to point out that people on the left coast should be careful when they throw stones.

Thank you for the info. Did you happen to see what went into the hole before the started filling it in? Was it piping for a terra based heating and air conditioning system? Thanks, Frank

If the stairs were closed (full width treads and risers) then that shelving nook idea could become a nap cubby as well. Thanks for the idea. Now where is my pillow and blanket at.

I believe that the entire foundation was replaced because there was at least one picture that showed that it had caved in somewhat. That would have necessitated digging the hole out a bit so the forms could be put in. A poured foundation should provide a nice dry basement if proper drain relief is provided around he base of it to reduce the water pressure on the footer and foundation.
