    Is this a cabin for just vacations or is this a residence? If it’s a residence; I would get some vents in the eaves to vent out the attic space.

    • It’s called a garden and I intend to use it as a starter box for the out of doors type. Picked it up in a deal with the front door; $50 ea and the door came with a full set of new in the box hardware (figured I saved over $200 on the door alone). I have a feeling that if I ever end up with a cat, the garden will be commandeered by it. LOL

    At some point I would wrap that porch right around to the front porch. (Don’t you love the monday morning quarterbacks?!??!)
    If you were closer I would set up my lawn chair in the front and shout directions.

    • Pass. Had one of them here when doing the roof. Short story, when he found out how heavy hardie panel is, and how I refuse to let dead weight lay, he made excuses ’bout a bad back. Lol

    • Fiber cement. The T1-11 you mention is pricier, has a weaker warranty and is notorious in these parts for de-laminating. (Humidity wise, this neck of the woods is a fishbowl). Good stuff but heavy, and precautions are needed when using power tools to cut it.
