Decided to start building my dream cabin in my spare time. This is pretty early in development at this point. I want it to sort of be a mix of primitive and high tech construction where it makes sense.
Aside from the overall structure the last thing I worked out was a little upper deck section with kind of a suspension bridge concept where a climbing rope zig-zags through the railing and is anchored to the main structure. The deck would still be fully supported underneath, the suspension aspect is more of an aid in support.
Also on the back side where the wood burning stove exhaust pipe comes out the idea is to create a cavity with directed exhaust pipe behind a split log holding area to dry out the wood a bit faster after splitting.... My guess is it might help it dry out maybe 10-20% faster.
