I know there's a right way to do this stuff, and I didn't follow the plans/etc. I'm living in a no-permits area, and so I just went for it.

You are not alone in this forum...there are many here who have built or are building rather differently
Our first cabin years ago was a group project with not much collective experience...hay bale walls for the first few winters...a quick floor just before our oldest started to crawl...cedar shakes replaced after the first chimney fire...vertical log walls that made chinking quite difficult...sometimes we knew better and sometimes we didn't...sometimes we just do what's necessary at the time and move on.....
I've been stressing about it a lot lately and have been dreading people shaking their head and wagging fingers. Around here I get patronized a lot - 'silly girl building a house without a man!' And am just over it lol.
