Cabins going up

     For too long, the 'lede' picture here (if a picture can be a lede) has been of timber drying before being used to construct two cabins.  So here's a partial catch-up on how that wood's becoming useful places to stay.  
     All of our new buildings are set 8' above ground level so that the space below each cabin can be used for shady relaxation.  
     The first thing that happened was that the floor was attached to the supporting piers, constructed some time ago.  These two units are about 10' apart and not exactly side-by-side as shown here.

     And then came the flooring and the walls.  You can see where two large windows will open onto the front porch facing the sea, with a door opening at the right hand side of this front wall.  The windows of the units and their front porches (these front porches are accessible only from inside the cabin) will catch both views and breezes.

     The walls on this cabin are seen here from ground level.  The bump-out at the left and rear of the building is the landing (for stairs that hadn't been attached at the time of this photo).
