Week 7: Interior Framing, Stairs (Cabin House Build)

Submitted by Ana White on Mon, 08/10/2020 - 11:26

Last summer, we spent six weeks framing up a house from a burned foundation.  It's a very simple house, inspired by traditional Alaska cabins for heating efficiency, low maintenance, and ease of building.  But we didn't get the heat system installed, so were unable to work on the Simple House over the winter.

This week, we started the project up again and got all the interior walls framed and stairs built.
