Offgrid Small Cabin Update

I have previously posted a rendering of my design but I believe this is the first picture I have actually posted of the small cabin I am building.  I am currently installing windows and siding. I am using the LP Smartside panels and will be using trim to give the look of board and batten siding.  The cabin is 16 x 32 with a loft and is completely off grid.  You can see part of a ladder in the woods in the bottom right of the photo.  I am in the process of jetting a well in this location. Currently I am about 15 foot deep but the last couple of feet have been pretty rough.  The soil I am in now is a bluish grey clay and is only allowing me to penetrate a couple of inches an hour.  The good news is that you typically find sand under this layer.  And hopefully this sand will be a good water bearing material.
