The Loft

We worked hard today even though the weather was not promising.  The view from the loft looks east across Hecate Strait towards mainland British Columbia.
Todays project was to get the floor in the loft installed so that meant putting in the the floor joists.
Can you tell how professional we are....Work Safe BC would have a field day!
"Now where did that nail go?"
Finally the loft floor was installed, 9 p.m. Wednesday evening!  There are three of us working on this cabin....Cacilia and myself and Peter who is a WOOFER from Switzerland who is pictured in the previous post.  It has been an interesting excerise at times as we are working without plans, by consenses and in two languages!!!!
Celebrating with friends who are building a real home down the road.
The cabin as we left it tonight!  We were exhausted but extremely satisfied with our accomplishment.

When you wake up in the morning you just might not want to come down from that lovely loft. When John builds a cabin the plans are mostly in his head. Once in a while he writes things on the boards themselves. On one of our rafters are the markings he used to make the template for the roof beams. I just love it! - Margy

I have visited your other blog, but this is the first time I have come here. NOw, I have to set aside some time to read from the beginning!
