Die bos in die voorgrond, en die 2 stukke gras op die foto is myne. Die res van die bos op linkerkant (en agter op die foto) is nie myne nie. Dit is kroon grond. Ek kan alles skoonmaak wat aan my behoort, ek hoef nie die regering toestemming te vra nie. Maar dit gaan baie geld kos.

I bit off a little more than I can chew. My leg still hurts , especially after 5 shutdown shifts, and I somehow “forgot” that on my days off I got to take care of the kids and homeschool. So we moved the classroom to the build site. Have Ipad, will travel...



Started with the footings. I got to cut a block out of the soil with the chainsaw (and wrecking chains as I go) because the forest floor is covered in a maze of tree roots and decomposed wood and leaves. A shovel just bounces of the roots. I got to dig down about 2 feet to get to hard clay. I then fill the hole with screener chips, tamp it down and put a concrete block on it.

 
It should look like this when done





I suddenly realized I just made a whole lot of work for myself.....again....

That's gonna be a very lekker cabin.

And you've built at least one before, so you can take what you learned from that one and apply it to this one.

Make it better, make it warmer, make it more comfy  :thumleft:

Indeed Zog, bigger and better. I may have gone a little too big. Time will tell.
The beams are up....level and square.



It has been raining here for 2 days straight, so I decided to build the floor in sections in my garage to save some time and then hauling it to the build site when things dry up a little. This floor is a little more difficult because of the heavy lumber. 16 foot 2x10’s. And then I have to sheet it at the bottom and top to have a “box” to hold the insulation and vapour barrier. 



I have been trying to give less fucks lately, but the mentally challenged guys at the lumber yard really got my goat today. I asked them to pack my trailer in a way that the top lumber is what I will be using first. Like the floor joists and the tongue and groove floor boards. But no, it was asking more than his mind could bare. I had to hand bomb everything off the trailer to find what I was looking for. And now I got to pack it all up again, haul it to the site and unload again.  :dousing:

Eish!  :o Sorry to hear about the lumber eejit. Mostly I think it would be great to have superpowers, so I can get more done and help others out more. Then I run into a storm of idiocy on a bad day, and realise why the gods in their wisdom didn't grant me the power to wipe out humanity...   :imaposer:

Floor is done and insulated. I feel pretty good about it. Totally over engineered the floor and foundation. It should still be standing for the grandkids to enjoy.
