so its been a while since I updated this thread. I still have a floor which is not attached. Its just loose floor boards. I have a friend who says he will help me install them permanently. The door was a lot of fun to build. Its a mixture of yellow cedar/red cedar and douglas fir. The s shape was made on a bandsaw. We attached two boards together with clamps/screws and cut the s shape out, therefore where the two boards would meet would be exact. The door is about 4 inch thick and has 4" of rockwool in it. The handle is made from two juniper branches.

The interior boards are grand fir. They came from a tree I fell earlier on last year. It was a dead standing tree, and the boards came out beautifully. Good luck getting grand fir like that in a store. Of course all the boards have been milled by me :D

I mostly sleep in the building. Once the floor gets secured I will start building a custom couch and other built in components. It will have a small kitchenette. I just confirmed that my solar system will heat up 1 liter of water on an induction cooktop!

I have the cedar boards to finish the outside. My preference is to install them in the winter when the sun isn't so bright. The building gets serious afternoon sunlight which potentially will warp the boards. I am looking forward to the red tape to not be there!

I have yet to light up the masonry stove this year. Its been hovering around 60*F in the building. I am warm enough with a wool blanket, plus a cover.
