    I'm building cabinets right now (another thing I've never done) and will haul them up in the Spring.

    Cheers.

    What'd spend on materials? Also, the underside of the enclosed deck, what did you use to close that up, plywood?

    That's very nice, I enjoyed watching. You must have got an enormous sense of satisfaction from it. Well done.

    So far it's just over 10k in materials. I went a bit over budget but not by a bank breaker. That 10k doesn't include the road work. I would have had to put that in anyway because of some other uses on the property.

    Right now the bottom is just closed up with 2 inch extruded Styrofoam. So it's Styrofoam sealed around the edges with Great Stuff foaming sealer then about ten inches of insulation then a vapor barrier then 3/4 inch tongue and groove sub floor. I'm thinking I should nail up 3/8 inch treated plywood from underneath. It'll be a bitch to put up and seal but probably worth it to keep out the bugs and critters. If I do that I think I'll have to figure out some kind of bug and critter proof venting system too.

    Cheers.

    If I were you I think some hardware cloth (1/4 x 1/4 wire fence) that would keep varments from chewing, protecting the foam.

    Thanks. I've never built anything square in my life so yah, it was really a satisfying project. I'm no spring chicken (62) and it took about six weeks for all the muscle and joint aches to go away after all the heavy lifting parts were done.

    Cheers.

    That's a good idea. Easier to install than 4 x 8 sheets of treated plywood too.

    Cheers.

    I was thinking the same thing. Racoons love hidey holes.

    Thanks. You know, I found that a project like this is more sticking with it than know how. I mentioned above that I had never built anything square in my life. That is absolutely true. I retired from the IT business last year and a project like this had been on my bucket list for a long time but I really had no idea what I was getting into.

    Study it. Start it. Stay with it. The skill set will follow.

    Cheers.
