Not sure if this is an acceptable post but it is wood working. This is a cabin I built out at our fish camp on the west side of Kodiak Island, I built the cabin on post and beam and then in closed it to use for storage, was a fun project.

Nice, Looks like you finished up just in time for old man winter!. I myself enjoy critisism from others and I’m not saying you do too!! Just a few little things I would like to say about your build. I could not accomplish something like this any day! But I do wanna say your windows in the front look kinda umm whats the word im looking for? Not really the size because you wanna be able to look out and see the great views. I just think something needs added to this final picture as far as the windows. To try and blend them better some way that would make a better final appearance!! Also the wrap around porch, are you gonna enclose the underpart of this someway?

Please excuse my judgement and don’t let this bother you in any way just one peon’s opinion on the flavor of wine in West Virginia.. My skill level would be a miracle to achieve something like this one day. I would love to own this place and have the great views of the water to wake up to each day. I don’t think there is a phone or device that could give me this kinda satisfaction

All in all EXCELLENT WORK my friend!! Enjoy your great getaway and be sure to post updates on your Fishin/ boat dock> I would like to see more on this in the time coming.

I love it! Wish I had one like it! If I make enough money to buy more timber, some of the trees are going to be part of a cabin like yours. I doubt if I’ll have a view as good as yours, but I’ll be warm! LOL

LOL Bertha!!

My opinion taken by Mr. James means about as much as a empty glass of water in the desert! Just a silly way to try and break the ice on my PARTIALLY negative feedback. Don’t take my goofy comments too seriously. Coffee and cigarettes tend to bring out the best in me in the early afternoon. 10 miles and I would be in WV too. So much prettier than western Maryland..

Ha! Jason, I really liked the comment. Every once in a while, I’ve got to go up to Martinsburg. I actually have to pass through Maryland to get where I’m going. It freaked me out the first time, because I only moved to WV 3 years ago & don’t know my way around.
.
I wanted a big log home in the woods, but I should have built a cabin like Kodiak’s. It’s running me ragged keeping up with it. But everything is so cheap in WV that it’s hard to go smaller;)

Welcome to LJ’s. This does qualify as a project. Just wish I could come help you work on it. Beautiful.

As for as this being a wood project it looks like wood to me. LOL Great job on the home and it gives me an idea since I own a couple of lots that are slopped and I have been thinking what type house to build. I didn’t want to do the basement thing so this would work great for me, if i ever get around to building on these lots. There are located on Lake Hartwell in South Carolina.

A neighbor down the way built a smallish timberframed home and enclosed the underside for the dogs to run around in. I’m pretty sure they enclosed it with sheathed cinder blocks. The dogs (two dobermans) must have shock collars. I really enjoy watching them run in and out of the lower level, then charge up the steps to the porch. Giant doghouse. I thought it was a good use of the space.

I’d like to book the second week of June please.

Wow, what a view. Stationed at Elmendorf 1968-69. Left a big part of me in AK. Too bad it is physically.

What a beatiful place!

It reminds me to Argentinian Patagonia, were we’re planning to move next year, just some thousand miles south of you :)
