The HVAC system all up there which is Pretty cool So this Um on the outside this is the cedar Board and Baton Um horizontal shiplap siding now Originally I wanted to do the entire House in this it's very expensive and Also it's not actually the best in this Climate which is a bit moist a bit more Moist than say somewhere like the desert Like Arizona or something so we decided Not to do this on the whole house and so You got this on the front we're going to Varnish this as well protect it from the Weather and stuff but it is beautiful I Mean look at that it just looks you know A house when you pull up in the car it Is you know absolutely what I dreamed of So the builders did a great job with This but then I'll take you around here And show you what we used around here This is a product called LP smartside Engineered wood uh Um is it board and Baton no it's uh what Is it yeah it's board and Baton vertical Siding Um this product it took me a while to Find what this was but this is actually What a lot of the cabins in New York State in the Catskills use I kept seeing Pictures of cabins with this stuff on The outside this board and Baton so These are the boards neither batons and
It's actually it's engineered wood so It's like wood pressed together and Imprinted with this wood grain design so You know it's sort of it has the feel of A wood cabin but it's actually not quite Um what you think and so we got this all The way down the side but then if you Look up we've got this little soffit in This color Buckskin which actually Emphasizes the color of the cedar on the Front so you get a little bit of that Color all the way down it's very very Cool the only thing we haven't done on The outside is put the gutters on which Are going to be these brass gutters or Or Um what's it called copper not bronzer I Wanted real copper gutters but they're Very expensive so I'm probably gonna Have imitation copper gutters but They're just going to make the design Pop as well on the outside so on this Side you can see we got the board and Batten siding done on this side too just Follow me so yeah this is our massive 15 Foot window this is what it looks like From the outside nice and black to match The side of the uh of the cabin And then just about here this is where The hot tub is going to be So you can come right out the door and You'll have a hot tub right here and Then if you look down there you've got a View of the forest there's actually a
Road down there so probably we're going To build up the land a little bit higher So you're basically at this level all The way out and we'll plant grass so You'll have you'll have kind of a little Lawn area before it drops away so it Actually as long as we build up the land To the right level you shouldn't be able To see the road at all and we'll Probably plant a few plant a few extra Evergreen trees just dotted around to Obscure the view even more so it'll be Totally private you'll be able to sit Here in your bathing suit or completely Naked if that's your thing in the hot Tub no one will be able to see you and You'll have a great time so yeah it's Going to be awesome right let's now head Back inside and talk about a couple more Things all right guys so that is the House tour I'm pretty pleased with it I Think the outside is looking beautiful Obviously we got to do the inside now That's going to take us about six weeks Or so Um but it's kind of you know it's going According to plan Um I you know we'll probably be renting This out by August at the latest so if You want to stay here do follow the Cabin on Instagram all right at Minnewaska cabin Um for Instagram followers you know you Will probably do like deals and stuff
