Wow! That is beautiful! There is an Amish company not far from us that make such buildings. They are not inexpensive! Very nice.

So...that is a shell.  Outside finished, insulation under the floor.  The rest is just open.  Tomorrow night I walk through with the electrician.  The next night with the plumber.

Love the size!  Our largest one (we have 3) is 24' long overall.  We've considered possibility of--if we could find an affordable small property in higher elevation--using a prefab loft barn as a vacation cabin.

Oh my.  I am in a hurry to get this done, so yesterday I picked out linoleum, arranged for it to be laid next Tuesday.  I met with both the electrician and the plumber.  I need to make a couple more decisions today, but this is well on its way.  Probably won’t be completely finished until next summer, but I think it will be well usable by July 4 when I have all my brothers and their families.  Some of my oldest brothers adult kids want to stay in this.

After camping at long C in one of their small primitive cabins, my husband built one modeled after it on our property. Over the years we have added to it. It now has electricity small loft, a small wood stove, a stained glass window, bamboo floors... and we make a tidy little sum renting it out through airbnb when we are not using it as a guest cabin. So far this month we have only skipped one night with it being rented even though they have to walk to the garage to use the facilities.  Something some of you might consider to pay for such a thing. We have spent under 5k building it but of course we did all the work, and it is on peirs so that it is "temporary."   https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/20363491?adults=1&children=0&infants=0&guests=1&location=Gallatin%2C%20TN%2C%20United%20States&s=xQGU82a-

It has had some more updates since the pictures. We have embraced it as sort of an art project. It has a small AC installed now and a small table and and stools made by my friend MaryJo from reclaimed  barnwood.  We still are pondering the big window. The horses like to come up from the pasture and stare into it when we have guest   ;D

Step one....linoleum.  Looks like wood planking.

Here is my husband in the partly finished cabin.  I have electricity, and a heater/air conditioner unit.  And it is all insulated.  Temp is much nicer with the insulation.

Bathroom....sort of.  The parts are in the right location, the cardboard square is the place holder for the shower.  And there will be a wall between the kitchen sink and the shower.  But we need to get that placement exact when the plumbing goes through the floor joists.
