All the bottles and screens or w/e are super creative. That's something I would do 😄 You decided against any colored bottles?

Liking your project. Keep up the good work!

First update in a while and I insulated the ceiling and upper wall sections of the cabin. I had to settle for conventional pink fiberglass and foam board insulation for several reasons mostly being budget, and lack of available help. As I've written before I'm doing this project mostly solo so in order to make progress based on my available time I've had to cut many corners in terms of doing a natural building. Still, I'm happy to be at least partially insulated now and glad to have this part of the project out of the way.

And here we have the deck build. New materials for the framing but the top decking boards are all repurposed picnic tables from an RV park. Though they were mostly warped and in bad shape I was able to lock them into place with clamps and screw them down for good. Will be expanding the deck soon, more pictures of the whole project coming soon as I haven't been posting here alot. New trees, and fences happened this summer too, stay tuned.
