Saturday at the cabin was cold and windy again, making work outside unpleasant and progress slow. I primarily worked on the cedar trim for the front corners. The front corner trim is complicated by the presence of the porch which required some creative cutting to make the trim reasonably attractive and weatherproof.

I also added a soffit on the utility room roof overhang. For the soffit I used two cedar boards with a gap of about an inch for ventilation. I backed the soffit with some metal screen material to keep insects out.

Finally I started running some 8/3 wire from the loft down to the utility room which will be used for the solar panels on the opposite roof. I have to do some prep work for the solar panels prior to closing in the loft ceiling, mainly running the wire and adding mounting brackets so I can bolt them through the roof while I have access.
