WOW!!  :o Do you wear a back brace when you are doing all of that hauling and lifting?? It doesn't help that you are doing most, if not all of the work yourself!! 11 tons of material just might have tweaked your back a tad!!! ::) Thanks for the explanation!!

No I don't wear a brace.
Got one somewhere buried in my spare bedroom which is just a really big closet now.
So full I can't close the door!!! Need to do something about that sometime. 
;D

Looks awesome there. Cabin coming along nicely. I hope you enjoy your time in Alaska, sounds like you could use a vacation!
I like to walk on water.

After last weeks unscheduled trip to Edmonton I finally got out to the cabin for 4 days this week.
I picked up a few things for the cabin while I was down South though.
It will do dual duty as a pump for filling my water tank for the cabin and running fire abatement sprinkler system and fire hose duties.
Wild fires are always a concern here in the summer. Although this year it seems like BC is the province on fire.
Picked up my gas water pump and a bunch of associated goodies.

 

Need a way to get the water too the cabin so I got a couple hundred feet or 2" poly pipe.



Spent my time up on the roof layin' tin!!!!
Too dang hot though and I went through several gallons of water and a case of Coke Zero pretty quickly.
Spent a lot of time running the generator so I could sit in front of my fan to cool down.

Finished up the North roof.









Started work on the South roof and got about 3/4 of the porch roof done before I ran out of screws.
It was too hot to work today anyway and I left the lake at 9:30AM to find me some AC to sit in.







Temps are supposed to be good next weekend and I hope to get a bunch more roofing done.

It sure would be nice if you could rig up an air conditioned space for your hot weather!! Probably not practical is it??

Thanks, but no.
High winds tomorrow so I'll be staying home.
My lumberyard didn't get my order of roofing screws in either so I really couldn't do much anyway.
Gonna work on cribbing for the dock though and get some stuff done around the house.

Hey Dave, What's your plan for installing the hardyboard on that big north wall?  That shield rock face below looks like a b***h to scaffold or ladder-show.

Didn't go to the cabin this weekend as there was an issue with my screw order for my roof.
Decided to stay at home and work on the cribbing for the section of dock that is connected to the shore. These will protect the lake side posts and the dock from ice damage in the spring.
I was lucky there was no damage this spring as I ran out of time last fall and didn't get them done.
These should be pretty solid once I fill them up with granite.

I have scaffolding with screw jacks.  ;)

Working on that lakeside roof and wall would make me nervous. Really enjoy watching your build, thanks.

Sorry the combination of bad weather and material order problems kept you from working on the cabin this past week end. The dock cribbing looks heavy duty should help protect the dock from ice damage.
