Painted this weekend, What do you think of the color,be brutally honest. Went with gray first but hated it. Its very quiet out here with the exception of a yappy dog down the road and when I shoot.

It looks like POOP. Literally.

Actually, it's a good color - blends

Once you finish it up a little inside it will be pretty nice. Some insulation might go a long way in keeping the temp reasonable in there.
Link Posted: 1/4/2006 10:56:39 AM EDT
I was wondering where the windows were.

15 months? Damn dude!

Very cool start.

Oh and, to be "brutally honest", the color is, ummm, a good basecoat for a camo paint job? What, are you using it for a blind?

15-months, did you take one board out every month? Looks like a good place to get away too. Insulation would be nice. What about do you have in the project. Also nice truck, love those Titans.
Link Posted: 1/4/2006 11:17:01 AM EDT
open the door the other way (out) will give you some more room!!!
might make the screen door a little tricky though.

One board a month,thats good Im glad I started awhile back, after Rita boards aren't cheap down here

Seriously though, it's a lot nicer than my cabin

can you elaborate on the type of foundation you're using? Color-wise, it is fine with me. Insulate the inside for a more even temperature range.

It sure looks like solid concrete blocks sitting on the ground.



Yeah but there should be something below the blocks. Should go down a bit into the ground.

Nice cabin. I bet you'll enjoy the heck out of it. I know I use mine ALOT and love it.
Its my "safe" place. No one bothers me, or even considers bothering me...and thats the beauty of it. I'm in the process of building a larger one, but yours will get you by for along time.
Here's my cabin, ( it looks alot like yours) far in the background. Its a two bunk setup, like yours but I went with a storage overhang for my tractor and gear. I use a porta-heater on a grill tank to heat mine. Works like a charm, but mine has insulation.

Ya got a permit for that thang, boy j/k

Nice project, something like that is on my list of things to do
Link Posted: 1/4/2006 12:26:53 PM EDT
perfect. do you have a wood stove or anything in the other corner? or just more bunks?

Other corner??? He too that pic from outside the window

No real problem with the color, but then , I've been told I'm colorblind. Seriously ... do you REALLY need that middle column on the porch? ???Better "view" and no walking into it in the dark ??? Just 2 more cents from the peanut gallery. What counts is your using it ... that's great. Stay safe

The color is perfect--with the possible exception of the dark color making it hotter in the summer, but only if you lack electricity for A/C.

Overall you have my compliments--well done and well thought-out.





Still have pictures of yours on my fridge.

I can sell you some wall to wall carpet if you dont mind that is says "WELCOME" on it.


Nice place, really, especially since you built it with your own hands.

Two years worth of weekends on mine. Just now got the inside all finished up last weekend. A man must have a cottage in the woods.


Link Posted: 1/4/2006 3:34:01 PM EDT
Needs some tan to break it up. Say its for thermal reasons, to keep it from getting too hot in the summer.

Hey, don't let the armchair qb's get you down. Most of these guys would give a nut for your little piece of heaven and assorted cool toys.

The only thing I think you're missing is a little pond full of big old black bass, and blue cats.

enjoy

PS I think the color is fine.
