You are all a great resource!
In planning to build my hunting cabin, I am pretty set on building it on Piers, not a poured foundation wall. Being a cabin that will get used occasionally and not a full time live in, Im thinking of the problems I may have to face. One is freezing pipes. If the power were to go off, Id have no way to know. So I need to deal with a simple way to drain plumbing in winter…any ideas?
Second is running water lines under the floor. The kitchen is not back to back with a bathroom so I hve to choose eiter run pipes in outside wall or under the floor. Being on piers, will the pipes not freeze if the cabin heat is on? How would you close in from the floor joists down to soil line? How would you insulate?
