Building a Log Home, chapter 18

Some of the longest logs were the ones that spanned the entire house. You can see that they had been planed flat on one side so that the ceiling boards could be nailed to them. Some have channels as well so that wiring could be run for fans and lights.


The young man who is sitting so precariously on the log used his chainsaw to cut each of the 32 ends off to the same length. I don’t know how he didn’t cut his legs off in the process, but he didn’t. He was like a monkey as he climbed from one to another, measured, sat, cut, and moved on. He did, however, ask me not to show this picture to his wife.
