-Finally, a porch roof…almost!
Here is my skp file…it’s the sketchup file if you want to have a look. I warn you, it is terrible and only gave me a rough idea of board counts, etc. Use it at your own peril!

can you send me your sketchup file? I’m building near Princeton WV and am very impressed with your design. Thanks! a. jarrett
A. Jarrett – My skp file is available here: http://myhomeamongthehills.com/building-our-small-cabin/ Look towards the bottom and you will see a link.
It took me awhile to find it…sorry for the delay. It’s a bad job and very rough so use it at your own risk!
I enjoyed your blog on building your cabin. My husband and i have raw land too and would like to build something inexpensive so that we could enjoy it. How much did it cost to build your cabin if you dont mind giving out that information. Thanks, Carla Baggett
I don’t really know for sure what it has cost. We started off keeping receipts but it has taken us so long to build it that we just sort of stopped keeping track. I guarantee that one could build a house with lesser expense than what we are doing though, esp if you have flatter ground. Building on a hillside has def added cost to our place. Send me an email if you would like and I can try to give some more info on what cost us more vs how you could save…
