This cabin took 8 months to build. It’s 52 logs and we started in the fall built through the winter and into the spring. I did this with the youth group from my church and I have no previous construction experience. I started doing a lot of research. The snow is still up around the cabin but I can really tell that there are another three roes of logs underneath the door. So when the snow goes away, the cabin is going to look a little taller. For the roof, I just used a heavy duty tarp, its a cheap and easy solution. There is no doorknob or anything but I added this little string in here, it releases the latch and then you are able to go inside. The cabin is 10×10 feet here but with the loft it is 10×16 feet. Right here we have waste oil stove which is a donation, homemade stove. The roof is at 45 degree angle. These windows are another donation to the cabin.
