Deb was a big help during the construction of the Outpost. What she lacked in experience she more than made up for it with enthusiasm. She has also spurred this project into reality and greatly influenced its design specs.
In ten days we were able to dig the footing holes, do the concrete pad foundation, frame the building and install the roofing.
I was able to salvage some of the soffit materials from my other projects off cuts. Not only does it look good (in my opinion) it is more critter resistant.
I build the cabinets from logs salvaged and milled by a local sawyer. Though small it is very functional.
The style was inspired by my Great Granfather's desk and evolved from there using the local materials I had found. It is a lot more work than buying stock cabinets but I was able to create custom sizes using solid wood and derive a great deal of satisfaction from it.
I used the same material to make the drawers. It mills and works beautifully.
To maximize comfort and conserve space I built a Murphy Bed.
My current project is interior trim. I'm resawing the material I'm getting from the sawyer and installing it rough side out bordered by the same material milled and stained dark. I make the backband from 1" rips that I rabbet and chamfer to add visual interest to the profile.
Thanks for your interest, support and inspiration.
