Logs are stacking up now...

If the weather keeps up like this, 40 degrees today! The project is back on track and the logs are really stacking up now.

First three rounds of logs brought the walls up to about 24". It will take 9 or 10 rounds to complete the main cabin. Then 3 or 4 rounds for the second story. I'll keep you posted on the progress.

  1. Hey Dick -

    Glad you stopped by again.

    That is an interesting way of raising money for the High School and the Bridge Society, repurposing the flooring into tables. Gotta be hard on the tooling though, with years of traffic and the grit it drives into the woodgrain.

    I don't know Mr. Tauke, I do remember the project though, caught my attention because they had obviously done their homework, the trusses were traditionally built and they raised in true bridgewright fashion, with unstayed Gins much like we did in Chester.

    I'll have to follow along on your cabin progress, I've done some dovetail type logcrafting, preservation work in Virginia
