What are the barriers between the soil on the roof and the sheathing? (And the doors are hung upside down, with one of the braces replaced. If it was necessary to hang them upside down, then the braces need to be reversed, which should be easy if they need to be replaced,)

The Mazama Cabin is located at the end of a beautiful meadow in the Methow Valley, on the east slope of the North Cascades Mountains in Washington state. The 1500 SF cabin is a superb place for a weekend get-a-way, with a garage below and compact living space above. The roof is “lifted” by a continuous band of clerestory windows, and the upstairs living space has a large glass wall facing a beautiful view of the mountain face known locally as Goat Wall.
