Yonderosa 'Outpost' update

Another Side mostly done.
Loft Floor / Porch Lid insulated

T&G Pine Porch Lid

Interior Loft Soffit

A look into the Loft

Adding a window

Window framed in and installed

Wall insulated and backsheeted for finish and trim backing

Unfortunately building remote limits your choices as to what materials are available. I did not plan to use this insulation but it was my only viable choice given my time and delivery options.
The Vaulted Main Floor area gives a spacious feel and affords many finish possibilities. We will likely use Pine T&G on the Lid and some Local Doug Fir for Wainscot, Panels, Base, Case, etc.

I also brought the first of the Cabinets over. There is a long way yet to go. We are pleased with how it is coming along.


  1. It is so lovely. Your blog is very nice. The images are very beautiful. God is Great. Best wishes.

  2. i love your cabin! and i love your blogs! i can't wait to catch up on all of the archives!

    God bless my friend!

  3. wow - that is a beautiful big-little getaway - you have done so much with the space!!

    i am glad to have found you - there is some inspiration here for my future life - i will be back - thanks so much!

  4. A wonderful place I will add. One of the things that puzzles me somewhat is how one could make a living in such an area. As a rule the more picturesque an area is the more difficult it is to have a source of income.

  5. The permanent residents are self reliant folk - food, energy, transportation, housing, etc are some of the ways they economize. Property taxes are low and that is reflected in the (lack of) services provided by the government - that lack of involvement and interference is the reason most are attracted to the area. The lifestyle isn't for everyone but independent types seem to thrive in these places.

  6. John, based on your blog I'd guess you would do very well in a remote area.

  7. I really love the colors on this one.
