    Please start another thread about this. This is the exact size that we can afford to build on our land to get us off the grid and to also have a plan "b" location. My wife and I have been very fortunate on the land side of the location. We can build a cabin like yours and use it to get away when needed until we can build a larger more permanent home on the site. After we build our permanent structure we can use this cabin as a guest "mother-in-law suite" or as an off-grid shop etc... We hope to hear from ya soon. Thank you from my wife and I in advance.-mountainman28713/wife.

    My wife and I spent last summer building the cabin. We started with a few sketches at the kitchen table. We have the all the pictures from the ground up if you would like to see them. I think we can post an album on this site.

    I also have the sketches used to build this with if you would like to get a copy.

    It was built 12' x 24' with two 8' lofts for sleeping, one on each end.

    This was a challenge for the marriage.... Toooo many supervisors!!!!!

    We survived and are now putting cabinets and finishing the trim work.

    Solar panels and lighting are coming soon.....

    This is the water supply for the cabin.

    BgTexas, did you design the cabin yourself? I plan to point my husband to this thread as THIS is what I am wanting on our BOL.

    BTW, the stove is cool, too. :)

    very cool. I made a couple of these 'stoves' but I didn't use the wire hanger. I'll try it out and add it.

    Great stove

    I was lucky ,I had 4 big brothers in the Boy Scouts and they taught are family of 9 how to make this stove, plus how to roll up corrugated cardboard real tight an put it in a tuna can and pour any kind of oil in the tuna can to make a quick light for the camp fire ,I later learned that wax is much better than oil,wax burns longer.
    Great site,loved the lay out of the stove.:rolleyes::)
