Help with my old Homestead Cabin
 
Hello folks, im going to try and post pic's but im in some desp need of help here, i got this cabin that needs work, or a proper burial.lol,

This cabin is about 496sq ft and if the pics showed up you can see it has a weatherd frame that can still withstand force winds, but def looks weatherd, the roof is completly gone, it does have some beams on top, but on closer inspection i can see some are braces together sideways, ovbviously unacceptable, i want to completly rebuild this cabin with the same style roof, but i dont even know what size the beamsare that are on top forming the trusses,, im a macheine operator and a mechanic. i have no idea where to start, im capable no doubt just lack the general knowledge, i want this to be safe and enexpensive as possible, the side's seem pretty easy to just board up, and all the foundation boards attached to the cement are in good shape too. and the cement aint cracked either, so lucky me there, but i would love to hear what some of youthink out there, whats the cheepest route that would allow safe weekend shelter when were out there riding bikes?. http://i108.photobucket.com/albums/n...otsss034-2.jpg
