I had to pay $25 for a lien agent and post it with the permit in the box.

Because I am in the critical watershed, I had to get an erosion control permit and install the measures.
 
Passed my electrical rough in today, now all the trades are passed and calling for framing inspection tomorrow.

I went through and listed the electrical that we installed, all I can say is wow!!

Clay, was thinking of you as the lumber for our traditional stick built home hit the site today. Luckily we are price locked with Schumacher.

Got a buddy who's building with the Amish and he was notified of an $8K lumber cost increase a few weeks ago due to supply n demand. How are things with the cabin after 1.5 months of looking for treated?

Hard no. This is our dream and the world doesn't get to see every nook n cranny of my castle. Only those invited inside shall know entrances, access points, defense, and offensive positions based on layout, materials and other sorts 😁

A log cabin is much different than the traditional stick build, I love this thread!
