With the stairway to the loft complete and the loft floor in I had a platform to work off from to close in the area between the top of the cabin walls and the roof.
The gap between the roof and top logs is the width of the 6x6 rafters and needs to be sealed and insulated well. Wiring to loft outlets and light fixtures will also be run in this space.
The first step was to cut and fit the bottom piece as shown on the right side in the picture. This required a bevel cut at an angle that matched the roof pitch. Next the vertical piece was fit so that it butted up against the bottom piece and also was beveled to match the pitch of the roof. The triangle area behind these two pieces will be filled with insulation and make a nice seal to keep out the cold.
Next, wiring, windows, doors and roof steel.
