Anyone have something like this on their property. Having it built this summer and want to maximize space especially for a loft area. Will have electric maybe water not sure yet. Place for Hunters/guests to sleep.

We have one at our lake house in Minnesota. 1 large room with a tiny powder room. Loft is half size and has a wood burning stove. Sleeps 6 adults no problem. When we were younger all the kids slept in there and we had 14 kids no problem in there

Sounds just like what I want. Thanks.

@First-lightI belonged to a hunting club that had something like that. 10 sets of bunkbeds, woodstove and an outhouse. It was a great time! One thing to consider is building your own bunk beds. I've built them with a full on the bottom and a twin on top. they were built with the top perpendicular to the bottom. we built a coat/gun rack into the support under the top bunk. this allowed everyone to hang up their hunting gear and store their boots at their bunk. Organized storage becomes a premium when you het 8-10 hunters in a small space.

I put a 12'X24' "Amish" built shed on my property before Covid started. I finished the interior and put in a woodstove. This has become my at home office for the last few years and we have considered getting another (larger) one for guests to stay in.

Why would a wood stove be outlawed? Is it something about this particular design?

 

No more fossil fuel to be burnt by next decade... they have already outlawed outdoor(forced air) wood furnaces in NY

The best part is all of the material was 3rd's from a local lumber yard. I milled all of the trim from the T&G that was too rough to use on the ceiling. I was in a bit of a rush but with the help of prednisone I finished most of it in 5 days.

The whole inside of my cabin is shiplap. Back 14 years ago it was 19 cents a board foot. I couldn't imagine what it and my cost would be now!
