Did you insulate the walls before putting the siding on?
Did you have any waves or is the siding thick enough to not have that issue?

Ok here is what it looks like now! It took a few weekends, but we got the LP Smart Siding installed on the exterior and the trim boards in place. I'm glad I painted them before hand, it was easier that way.

And here are some pics of the new interior. I fully understood what everyone said about using vinyl flooring, but in the end the cost was too much. To do the cabin in vinyl, it was close to a thousand bucks, I ended up paying 380.00 for the laminate. I left 1/2" to 3/4" all around to allow for expansion once things start heating up. This weekend, I hope to finish the electrical, paint the interior, and install a vent near the roof to allow the heat to escape. The ship lap on the interior was done with thin plywood which we ripped down to 8" boards and then air stapled in place to the studs. We insulated it with R13 prior to the ship lap going up.

I don't know what the price difference would be using sheet rock versus OSB though, the OSB would be more durable IMO.

most likely won't be an issue, OSB glue can be a problem for anyone that has allergies...

Great so far! But by all means go ahead and insulate the ceiling and sheath it with whatever is handy. You are losing/absorbing five times the heat from your uninsulated roof that you were from your previously uninsulated walls.

I build my deer blinds with Smart Panel. It is great stuff and seems to last well, especially if you add a layer of paint to its primed surface.

Took about 8 weekends to get it all done. The only thing left is to resize the bunk beds and add a lower kitchen cabinet with a countertop. At this point there is very little, if any ventilation. In the summer the temps in the cabin have got to be pushing 120 degrees at least. Does anyone think I should a whirlybird on top of the roof?

My wife said to mix the interior paint 50/50 with water in order to give the walls an older "weathered washed look."

Looks like you have electricity. Do you have an A/C? Are you just worried about the contents baking while you are gone or are you worried about you baking in the summer? If the latter, a whirly bird won't help.

In our cabin, we insulated the roof, and installed wood panels, then stuck a window unit in. Turn on the AC when we get there, and within an hour it is nice a cool in there. Our 5000 BTU AC runs on a 2000W generator.

I did that with some flower boxes I made for my wife out of wood, I added a little water, asked her to look at a test piece, kept adding water until she found one she liked the best.

Yes I bought an 8000 btu AC window unit which will run on a Honda 2200i generator. I was thinking of a whirley bird so the place would not be so hot when we are not there. I am curious if the AC will cool the place as the roof is not insulated.

The place looks awesome but you might want to move that plastic cabinet away from the stove...it might melt when you start cooking.

I would think the whirly bird will reduce cooling efficiency when you are there. If it were me, I would at minimum close in the rafters with plywood to create an air space. Preferably with some insulation. I really would not worry about the heat when you are not there.
