Spars are going in. Since the roof is so thin and the bend so sharp, I relieved the center of the spar so the ceiling plywood can bend naturally. #8 screws attach them to the sides.

Thanks! Learning a lot as I go. Some random pics from tonight:Image Rear cabinets are coming together.

Image Back of every cabinet is getting red cedar. Because camping is stinky.

Image Track saw is best saw.

Image This is a mess. Inside cabinet faces. I wish I was better at this part. I need a miter saw.

Does Luca go hunting with you? He is so camouflaged I hope he wears an orange vest.

Not during deer season, but he's a great squirrel hunter. Sits under the tree patiently and points when he sees them. It's amazing how good he is at it, often seeing them before me.

He also goes grouse hunting. Doesn't really care about the birds, but he's big enough to flush them up.

Slow progress. This all looks insane right now. I swear I have a plan.

Your Teardrop is looking great. I like your choices of wood your using. We were just in Wisconsin with our teardrop last week.

Thank you for the encouragement. The build seems to be crawling along right now. I would post some photos, but there is little visible progress!

Made a little progress tonight with the door frame, cabinets and interior lights. I'll get some photos up later.

Rear cabinets are back out. You can see the door frame installed and supports for lights.
