First 48

Have the first 48 logs pealed, racked and ready to go...

Now it is on to the second pile. Minus 10 today so I will probably spend a lot of time in by the fire today, "thinking" about the new cabin plan.

The Log "family" grows

Going from a pile of giant pickup sticks to a nice neat rack of logs can be a bit of a job, but made easier if  looked at as a labor of love. In the process you get to see each log up close and personal. As you saw off each branch node and then pry off the bark what was before just a log in a pile sort of becomes "family" if you know what I mean.

And so it goes. With 30 some logs now in the "family" and 10 to go the first pile is almost done. A second pile of another 40 logs can be seen at the top of the picture.
