Shannon is Building The Pioneer Cabin

Shannon is building the Pioneer’s Cabin, a 16’x20′ cabin I designed. His house is located on 14.5 acres just north of Birmingham, AL and will be used by his family part time. It will be most likely fully off-grid with power from solar panels and/or a generator.

He’ll be using live edge siding and pine logs for front porch posts and balusters. As he builds we’ll be following along. So far he’s built the foundation and deck platform but has also begun collecting and working the wood for the siding, porch posts, and balusters.

Update: Shannon will be harvesting barn wood for his cabin, and has scored some good reclaimed roofing.
