Our New Cabin
Lens: HD-DA 16-85mm Camera: Pentax K30 Photo Location: Norway

One mor of our new cabin. A lot of work to do inside though. It means less time to photography and to be on The Forum.

Looks FREEZING !!! Don't work too hard my friend. Hope it is all finished by your summer Janse so you can relax and take some lovely landscape images from you New Cabin. It is in a beautiful area mate.

Thank you so much my friend. This weekend we were putting insulation in the walls. Happily my youngest son was helping me. ( He is in his best age and a very good worker as his father was in older days)

It looks awesome... looks like you had to go through some interesting landscaping/ Is that a flood wall, so you could build on flood plain, or just to level a sloping lot?

Thank you normhead. The wall is part of an old house no removed. The terrain is sloping a lot.

Yes, there are salmon in the fjord, but difficult to catch though.

Way Kool !!
Beautiful location.
I congratulate you for pursuing this "Dream". Lots of "Sweat equity" required to realize, right?

I was re-inspired to build a "Cabin in the Woods" for us after a trip to Norway in 1998, where I saw (and photographed) a Norwegian Log Cabin
(Pictures of our cabin below if you are interested)
Lots of "Sweat equity" required on this one to get it finished. Whew!

No lake near by our cabin, though, like your new place
We got big trees

Thank you so much Moe49. What a impressive cabin you have built. What kind of wood is the countertop made of? Could I ask what your budget was for the whole project?

Around here, we don't call those cabins... my neighbours trapping ancestors built cabins, that's a log home, just being semantical.

Great job, I always dreamed I'd build one of those one day, At this point, almost 70, I guess it's not going to happen.

The kitchen and bathroom countertops are granite, not wood.
The Dining Table top is Douglas Fir with White Pine inlay. Made it myself
