Brisk working weather
No wind, sun is out, temp above zero...pretty nice day but, might need gloves. Had breakfast with Alex (South Wayne bridge building student) a few days ago and brought him up to speed on the cabin building and what I was doing. When I told him I had some logs to straighten he looked puzzled and asked, "How do you do that?"
The walls have now gotten to a height where working from the ground is difficult. Some type of scaffolding was required. After some considerable thought and effort I came up with this idea.
The growing height of the walls presents another problem. With each log weighing in at over 200 pounds they are a hand full and it will only get worse as construction goes on. For now simple ramps and some c-clamps will do. Should be getting to the top of the door frames this week. May have to rig up a parbuckle. Better control and safer. May have to rig up a similar catwalk inside the walls also. We'll see how it goes.
