Cabin in the Mountains
Working together for over 10 years
The frame was cut by Joe Bonn of Steamboat Springs, CO, with whom I’ve been working with for over 10 years. Almost all the frames Joe fabricates are lodge-pole pine (beetle-kill) harvested locally in & around Routt County. For those who don’t find the bluish tint of the timbers appealing, you can certainly solve this by applying a darker stain. Joe also milled all of the interior & exterior siding. I particularly like the detail on the outside corners!
Energy Efficiency a Must
If they were all this easy!!
I’m extremely pleased on how this project turned out. Even though the structure itself was quite simple, the attachment of the porch rafters to the wall panels & frame and the detailing of the dormer panels to create intersecting vaults were crucial. It took some fine tuning, but everything worked out. Even Baron seems happy!
As of today, Jamie recently got approvals for his rough-in inspections from the building department and has installed a much needed propane heater, just in time for the long winter. I can’t wait to see the finished product. I’ll be sure to post more photos then.
