In the beginning...

Hi everyone, I've decided to detail my attempts to build a lake cabin. Here is a little history on the project.

Work began in the fall of 2006. Our property had an existing house trailer on it. There was a large roof structure built over top of the trailer house. I hired contractors to remove the trailer and to add footings to the roof structure. I also had a contractor install a floor joist system. When the contractors were done we basically had a floor joist system cover by a large roof.

The following spring (2007) we got busy installing the flooring system and getting the exterior walls framed.

By the end of the summer we had the exterior walls up and windows and doors (except for the patio door) in. We also got the exterior wrapped with house wrap.

We also got the main electrical service panel installed. That is where work ended in 2007. I will update this blog with our 2008 progress soon.
