Tell her to come on up and look at it close. I figure on putting a little kitchen in it and making Forestry Forum members make me breakfast in exchange for rent. ;D

Kevin, this will be your breakfast cooking spot. Right outside under the overhang. Already got it figured out.  :)

Garey, You will be able to stay as long as you want because it'll probably be me that leaves. :D

Good job guys!   8)

 I really like the tiny front porch with the overhang. Is that a tiny little room up in the attic with the window? What are your plans for this mini-house?

Thanks Patty! , actually, the plan is for using it for storage until we can get the garage/barn.jeff's BIG doghouse built. :D  THEN, it becomes a pool house-guest house.  The overhang should be big enough for a bunk, but we have a log futon in storage right now that will probably go in there to convert to a large bed when folded out.  I do plan on insulating it next year.

Nope redpine but the corners and window trim are trim though. If you look close you might recognize it's source. ;D  does FOOD-MIZER ring a bell? 8)

Neat house Jeff.

Do you need to cut grooves in the back of the siding to stop rain from climbing up between the boards by capillary action?

When I helped grandfather put clapboard on the south end of the house 25 years ago it wasn't grooved. The clapboard usually has a thick edge and a thin edge, but I don't think it's nesseccary. Now the house is covered in vinyl, right over the clapboards.

I dont think its a problem. One thing, there is a monster overhang, two, the siding is horizontal.

Thanks, that's great.

We want to build more things here and if you buy weatherboard (clapboard) from the retailers, it has a pair of grooves, just 3/16" deep sawcuts  1/2" apart near the bottom of the inside edge, that's why I asked.

Jeff, really looking nice.  Shows a lot of thought...roof overhang, windows, along with the cantilever porch are quite attractive.

Like seeing tarpaper in lieu of Tyvek for house wrap.  Maybe an old timer but I have used both and think tarpaper is far superior.

One question...for your footings are you using those precast things from Lowes at $8.00 + or so?  My buddy is pre-casting those things and wants me to start sawing ERC so he can sell some kits.

Ditto. After seeing some pictures of holey tyvek under cedar I never looked back. I figure other extractives will do the same thing to it, just slower.

Looks good guys. I was in the doghouse before we were that far along  ;D.
