Something tells me ljohnsaw is an old-school craftsman.  I bet it was a gin pole.   ;D

I was really expecting to see the floor pegged or was it supposed to be radiant floor heat? Where is the radiant floor tubing?  you put the decking down before putting the slab down for the radiant heat?  Rip all that up, put the tubes down, cement it properly, the put the decking back, you'll have to free float it maybe. 

Now then you need some better flooring, you'll need some quarter saw WO with walnut basketweave corners.   :D

Hey it's your own fault for making such a nice model

Update: 2/10/2107

It has been raining A LOT here so not much else to do but work on the model.  The "frame" is complete.

 

This is looking at the west wall, bedroom on the left, bathroom (the alcove is where the shower will be) then kitchen area where the unfinished floor is.

 

Other bedroom

 

Looking at the east wall.   There will be walls on both sides of the stair to close off the basement staircase.

 

Looking at the south wall

 

Looking through the front door - you can see through the bedroom doorway and out the window

Update 2/12/2017:

Went up yesterday to drop my son at a Boy Scout winter campout.  Swung by my cabin build.  The guy clearing some roads said the 13" of rain that came down last Wednesday and Thursday compressed/melted the 10' of snow down to 6 or 7' that it is now.  Here is the road heading toward my turnoff:

 

The easement up to my cabin:

 

Closeup for scale:

 

My log arch is almost gone!

 

SkyTrak is stuck for the time being:

 

My mill won't be seeing daylight for some time - the mill head stands over 8' above the ground:

 

The doorway is 8' high:

 

Garage door is 8'8" high, walls are 10':

 

The "bodies" buried are my timber stacks from November:
 

 

But made this for fun!

Here in southern Oregon, the snow is mostly gone. Now we're dealing with the mud.

Update 3/5/2017:

We've been getting snow off and on over the last week at my property at 5,800' elevation.  The snow today (very light) is all the way down to 2,000'.  My neighbors were having a snow play day on Saturday but we couldn't make it up - good thing!  There was a foot or so dumped on Saturday and I-80 was closed overnight.  The road opened up for a little while in the afternoon but my neighbors were stuck with an unplowed mile long road to the freeway.  The contracted snow removal guy showed up with this nice toy:

 

He was installing some better chains so he could continue up the grade toward the camera.  Fresh snow sure is prudy!  I-80 was closed again due to white out conditions :-\
