Its been a little while since last post so I figure I would give folks an update on the Pathfinder destruction and rebirth. The stove is getting a good workout and keeping the shed at a nice temperature. It makes work in the sub zero temperatures and snowstorms bearable.
The cleanup is complete and the construction of the cabin is well under way. The sides and bulkheads were installed with no problems and things are looking up.
The compression post design changed for the availability of wood on hand but it looks better than my original idea, not to mention much stronger.
It's looking as I expected would. But progress pace must be kept, spring is technically here and it won't be long and it will be sailing season.
