Slope cabin underway

We’ve long wanted to capitalise and enjoy the slope nearest the chicken coop and garden. The canyon below is a dramatic backdrop and a steep slope defines the building. Using materials salvaged from the adjacent forest, Dunnie (a.k.a. Lockie) helped Brett prepare the foundation. Using amazingly large timbers, we framed the exterior and spanned them with gorgeous yet significantly strong hardwood joists.

Our inspector came around, lofted his leg, and wetted the enormous timber piers.
