The only thing that surprised me was the lack of solar panels!. When can I move in?

One thing missing is a good woman! The problem is you'll never find one in these latter days that'll live the rugged life

Nice job. Only thing I would have done different is to cut down the trees in the immediate vicinity of the cabin for some of the timber, clearing a space for a driveway, patio, conservatory, vegetable plot, and trampoline for the grandchildren. :)
