Looking good! Can that tent material hold up to your winters or are you framing in around them? Is that what you mean?

The tent will hold up to winter snow load, rated for 25cm or about 11 inches. The inside framing will not touch the tent. The tent moves in the wind. It will be a separate structure so I can insulate and have solid walls. It will be unconventional that's for sure. I hope it works! Thanks for following, dorf dude...

I've gotten a little further with the steps on the back wall. I set a couple blocks at a time then wait a few days for them to harden up. No hurry with this one. Here's a pic, dorf dude...

Does the OSB feel like it gives at all when you walk on it? When you frame the walls, do you plan on fastening the bottom plate to the OSB? I've never seen anyone build walls inside one of those tents. Very interesting.

The OSB has no give at all. It has 100% support from underneath. The gravel was leveled by hand. I paid very close attention to any high spots. The walls will be secured to the floor. This is going to be very unconventional that's for sure. Sometimes I like trying things that have not been tried. Just to see if it will work I guess. As I've been building this place over the last 4 years I've been told many times "You can't do that" Well I did and it has worked out fine. I don't think this place is going to fall down any time soon. It holds heat very well in the winter and is very cool in the summer. Thanks for following and stay tuned. More to come. dorf dude...

I got a little further on the back wall. I thought I would throw a couple pic's up so you could track the progress. Nothing exciting. I hammer a 2 1/2 ft piece of rebar in the ground to make sure it all stays put. Because there will be further blocks going on top of these I don't fill them full. I only fill half way so the next row is cast together with the lower. Make any sense? They have covers on them so Mia doesn't knock dirt inside. Lesson learned there. Anyways, Thanks, dorf dude...

I took another shot at the stairs today. I ran into massive roots. I broke out the Fein Multimaster. Greatest tool for those certain jobs. Roots away! Here are a couple pics. dorf dude...

I've gotten the form and rebar in for the little retaining wall on the other side of the "Shent", Shop-Tent. I'm short on cement and today was another holiday, no chance to buy some. Tomorrow is the mix and pour. Depends on the weather too. A couple pic's, dorf dude...

After 10 loads the wall is poured! It isn't perfect but will do it's job well into the future. That should be the last concrete work for awhile. Here's a pic. So far no paw prints. We'll see in the morning. dorf dude...

Dorf Dude -

I admire the way you handle the numerous holidays and the avoidance of sound for construction on certain days, but still they have local parades with bands early on a Sunday morning.

I had a friend based in Switzerland on salary and he "milked" the system by knowing the holiday schedule in every country and scheduled every trip on mileage (with his wife) to get a an extra day off with meals and housing legally.

The project is looking good and keeps everton what is going to be revealed after the "cloak" is removed. That is certainly a cozy stair system since the rise for each step is probably probably 200 mm (8"), but it certainly very strong and substantial.

The saw mill was short handed and they could not deliver my wood but I could deliver it myself with their truck, no problem. I got a cash price with no receipt Once I got the load home Mia claimed it as her's. Greg gave me a hand off loading, Thanks! Campbell and I started framing. He cut it and I assembled it. We have decided to add 2 windows on the back wall. I found some used ones and I hope they are still there. Here are a couple pic's. I'm glad you enjoy following along. dorf dude...
