The sheathing is in place but not nailed down yet. A few of the lower cross-braces are also in place. Ignore the woman dancing on the subfloor. She's been out in the sun too long.

All the sheathing is in place and plastic is ready to cover it. We also cleaned up the earth around the cabin for better water drainage and did a final backfill on the footings.

Here's a detail shot of the diagonals installed to stiffen the post structure. The four missing diagonals that go from the post base to the rim joist will be installed later to fully strengthen the structure and help protect against wind and earthquake damage. On that topic, we also installed metal post anchors to the tops of the posts, connecting them to the beam in a really solid way.
