Prepology: Simple definition, the art of survival and being in control of your future to the extent that you can! Life comes at us in both a predictable and un-predictable way and while you can shape it to some extent with the decisions that you make we are still just rolling the dice in the big game of life so lets put the odds in your favor.

Well Playtime is over and we are back to the cabin project, we have a time issue on our borrowed scaffolding so we had to jump on the main roof T&G. The original thoughts were to run the T&G parallel with the logs but with the logs being all natural they do not like to have a straight line next to them and when we put up the first two pieces we hated it so down it came and we went roughly 45 Degrees to the logs and it is turning out much better and we are going to stick with it. On the next lower section we will be reversing the pattern to make a zigzag, it should be interesting.
Here is another angle from the ground, while we were up in the air we also go the logs wired for the two chandelier's and the fan that will go in the middle, also out of view is the location for the smoke detector. In the left hand beam we also have two light drops that will go over the island,
For insulation we are using an R-30 and above that we are using 1" Styrofoam that is just below the flange and leaves a 7/8'S gap for the ventilation to the ridge vent.
Some dumb guy doing insulation work, the BCI's are on 24" centers so it actually goes pretty fast. As always questions and comments are welcome so please do not hesitate and you can also see previous post's of this build on the update page here.
