This looks interesting but three boards per layer seems like a lot to me. Better to frame, insulate, and use the boards for siding? What do you think?

It's bad unknowledgeable design, though they got the roof right. A shed needs to
breathe and react to the environment as quickly as possible. Adding insulation,
even in the form of 3 layers of wood, will and does create condensation...very
bad. Just go with the tried and true stick framing with a pressure treated
plywood skin...nothing else. Or, if you have high moisture contact and no
guttering or eave overhang, then do the skin out of waterproof cement board.

His R values should be okay. He doesn't have too many windows or doors, for heat/AC to escape and the cabin isn't very big.
I'd have preferred more windows.... let the natural light in! A skylight or two, maybe?.... And a fireplace/chimney, for my idea of a cabin.
The cabin build: The concept seems neat. Seems like a lot of work, though, laminating all those boards.... at least for my 65 yr old mind, these days. At 20-25, I'd probably thought to give him a hand and enjoyed it. All elements seem practical.
If one has even a reasonable idea about something, then hell, give it a go and see what happens.
