winter's coming

These are 2 buildings that Larry bought. They won't be shipped before the snow flies, so rather than disassemble and stack the logs (which can cause them to warp), we will leave them standing over the winter.

Truss Me

So, let's see if I've got this correctly: You want to be trussed up? Or you want to put a truss up?Put a truss Up. Here were assembling a truss on my sawmill. Come to think of it I guess we are "trussed" up..
we are now building a 24 X 32 cabin with a 10 foot truss highlighted porch.
Erected on site it will look like this. If you check a little further down on the Blog you can see how one of my customers finished his lake side cabin. Yours could look like that also.
I think the truss really adds something to the design. What do you think. Give me a call and I can start your dream cabin..

the correct way to make log stairs

This is a set of stairs that I made for my brother's log home.They got damaged a little this past winter when the snow plow came a little too close to the bottom steps, but nothing that can't be fixed.Note the exact fit of the risers.No big gaps on the sides and each step is deep enough that you do not scrape your calves as you walk down them. This is how they are supposed to be made. Now I've just got to get back there and put up handrails .... maybe some nice burls .... or wagon wheels.

Here is a finishing touch to the "prow" building.....a set of stairs.The owner of this building likes it so much he ordered another one. No kidding. I'm just laying out all the measurements now. How 'bout a picnic table? Wouldn't this look great out near your barbecue? It could be yours.
