To get sick you need to get the germs from someone - being that you live up there in no-mans land how do you end up getting any sickness

Moose saliva, or it could be Cariboo. Dave take care of the back NOW. I went years without heeding the warning signs, you know wake in the AM stiff and sore then off to the Blast Furnaces. Can't wait for the Craneman, heck just put a sling around the 300 pound piece of iron and drag it to the scrap box. Now I am in bad shape. 4 crushed vertebrae, Cervical and Lumbar. Now I have to buy 24 cans of Ale as I can't handle a case of bottles without my back killing me. MRI this past Sunday, CT scan tomorrow, a fist full of muscle relaxers every AM. It's a chore to get my socks and shoes on. Flashback 30 years ago. "Hey lets watch Johnny D leg press 750lbs." Idiot. I hope after building that beautiful place all by yourself you will be able to get to it let alone enjoy it in 10 years. You will never be any younger than you are today. Take it easy Big Dave. Read my by line below.

Hey guys if you haven't realized yet; getting old ain't for sissies. Do what you enjoy, don't over do the enjoyment and know when to stop and take a break, What does Spock say "live long and prosper". Your retirement house looks amazing. Thanks for taking us along on this ride of yours.

Dan.

Asians come here to fornicate under the Northern Lights.

They bring their germs with them. ;)

Nice pictures. Good luck hauling materials. Will your cabin be finished on the inside this year or next? Are you using drywall or wood paneling on the inside walls?

Gonna be a while yet to get the inside done. 

Hopefully most of the insulation will be done this year and all the insulation finished next year. After that it's 1"X6" T&G pine for the finish. May do some drywall on the ceilings in the entrance, mud room, master bedroom and closet under the stairs. Not sure yet.

How late in the season can you haul up there?  I'm guessing end of April at least.

I looks like you are insulating with Roxul, good stuff. I used the same insulation in my place. Use a mask when installing, dusty.

Nice Dave.

You do want the place to breath though. ^_^

That's what windows are for.  

Probably be too hot for me even on low after it's warmed up.  :)

OH, and no vapor barrier in the floor so that should help.

Still got lots of ice up at the cabin.
Snow is going fast though.

Had to take the back route in as the portage at the start of the normal route is a rutted mud bog now.
The back trail hasn't been plowed since the last windstorm so it was a bit sketchy but the ole Honda had no issues with the deep snow and ruts. :)
