Here's a quick building update for the cabin's outbuilding. It's basically a 12x12 shed with a walk-in basement which will become the laundry room, with room for an extra fridge (The cabin just has an under the counter fridge )
By digging out a sloping entrance tot he subterrainean room, it'll be easy to handle drainage. Also---by having completely independent entrances for the shed and laundry below, interior stairs are eliminated. They take up lots and lots of space and the slope is steep enough to allow it.
All hand dug. Work has been crazy busy---I've spent more hours at work than not so far this year--Mostly by choice, some by mandate. So thankful the cottage was completed before work needed more
