    Really tho, all jokes aside, and I could be wrong but I think, as a member, I believe you are welcome to come sit in on any future class. I can poke a little, I think I've settled on a 5th location for a shotgun shack, I think John17three is on his second or third load of logs, and I believe LHN has attended class twice and done his roof twice. Lesson: Anything worth doing once is worth doing at least twice. Somehow I wound up with 4 kids so take all that with a grain of salt (I wouldn't take one back). I've heard people don't usually regret what they've done, but rather, what they didn't do. I've found this to be true.

    The proper quote is "Anything worth doing right, is worth doing twice".





    Or 4 times in your case, Allen.

    Just a second attempt, which by quality was a much better (and successful) attempt. If we count the landowner that after charging a premium by the board foot (I was without other leads) decided to ask for $25/hr for hauling subsequent loads out of the woods, my 2nd and 3rd load of logs from a shaving mill would count as 3rd attempt. But at this point, who’s counting.

    Like said above, u only regret what u don’t do, which is also why I have a stem wall for the garage waiting for logs too.

    I see you live in Oregon. Could you quickly run through how I go about talking with the forestry department to obtain trees? I plan on building in Oregon.

    Finished class yesterday, I ended up taking about 10 pages of notes FYI.

    Sent in my request for the members forums, so just waiting for that to go through.

    The class wan't as in-depth and technical as I guess I was hoping (I'm a very OCD mechanical engineer...), and the manual is pretty basic, however I do understand you can only go over so much material in a class full of very green "builders".

    I suspect and hope the members forums will have a much larger and deeper technical knowledge base to pull from.

    Still deciding if I will actually build a B&P, so still have a lot more research to do.

    Thanks, should be fun no matter what I decide to do.

    Saw you in a video in class, not sure Hawian shirts are OSHA approved jobsite attire? Maybe put a LHBA patch on that shirt and it would be ok...
