For a number of reasons I decided to raise the ridge with the hoist and block it up for a test fit of the rafter cuts to see if they were correct. And they were so I could proceed to build in the gable ends and frame in the windows.
In the mean time I can get on to other projects (Manor fish tank memorial and KidWind Challenge training) that have been started during the summer.

First before we get to the squinted half lap joint I had to put in the cross tie that would hold the cabin walls together and support the loft floor hoists.
And here you have it a squinted half lap joint joined with draw bore pegs. Nice and tight. Pretty neat!
Next loft floor joists, the rafters, the gable ends and the stairs to the loft. Piece of cake right? The porch roof will have to wait until the cabin is on site because the post for the porch will sit on a deck.
