The next step was to place the floor joist for the second floor.


We used 2x8's for the joists on the second floor. Note there is an opening for the stairs.

The stairs will be "L" shaped with a landing half way up. There will be 13 stairs counting the landing. Each stair will have a rise of 6 7/8" and a run of 11". It is best to keep your rise around 6" and your stair treads (run) about 11".

The deminsions of the cabin are 12'x 28'. A mininmum of trees where removed to accommodate the cabin.
