Work now begins on the two 24' logs that will make up the sides of the floor frame for the 12 by 16 cabin. That is after you get them out of the rack and into position. No small task, but made a lot easier with the wind generator stand that I have re-purposed into a dandy log mover.
As I think about hewing these logs I know this is nothing new. One hundred and fifty years ago if you would have told someone that you did this they would not have been impressed. What gets me is every time I pick up one of my antique broad axes to do this work there is no doubt in my mind that this very axe was held and used by someone to perform this very task. There is something very cool about that. I can almost feel their finger prints on the axe handle.
