Logs, Lots of logs!!
Dad and myself continue to pile up the logs. There is an end in sight. At least I think there is an end in sight. For now at least, we have decided to start doing a little framing to get everything tied together. The exterior walls are all but complete and need to be tied together o keep them in place if a nasty little wind decides to come through and blow things around. I sure would hate to see all those logs laying back on the ground in a heap. I believe that they would officially become firewood at that point.
Here we are laying up the cap log on one of the gable ends of the cabin. The framing for the second floor will start on top of this log.
So, we start a little framing on the two main level bed rooms. Nothing fancy or tricky here. Just your typical run of the mill framing will do.
That all went pretty well. We now have what appears to be the makings of two bed rooms.
Here we are doing the framing for the front bed room. The center dividing wall is framed from 2x6's. The floor beams for the master bed room will rest on the center wall and need all the support they can get.
And now for the second bed room framing. You can see from this pic that the log walls are not completely finished. We are moving towards that goal as much as we can at the moment. Once the framing is complete, then we can finishde the log stacking and get it all braced and tied together.
