The average time to get a log in place is about 1/2 an hour because we drill our logs then pound rebar to hold them in place. Our two day class is about the basics (how to stack carrots) and where to get information.

    There are many web sight that track how they built their log home... Stacking logs is no big deal. I stacked 63 logs in 12 days.

    Putting in the plumbing and electrical will take time. But feel free to ask as many question as you have them.
    Gladfully there will be no sharpening and maintenace of chainsaw, felling a tree and so on.
    Thank you for the invitation if i have questions..

    Greetings from hell, friends!

    I just took the Las Vegas February class, and am now back in Afghanistan. The class was wonderful, and I'm very glad to be on the forums. I look forward to touching base with the folks who took the same class with me a few days ago, as well as the opportunity to meet new friends.

    I have no land yet, no idea where I'm going to build my cabin, or even if I'm going to build my cabin. I have to focus on Afghanistan now. Once my work here is done, we'll take it from there!

    - George

    Welcome George! Is there any trees big enough in Afghanistan to build with? Maybe the countries first log home!

    There are Himalayan Cedars in Afghanistan nearly 200 feet tall and 10 feet in diameter. Himalayan Cedar is durable, rot-resistant, and has a fine, close grain. Sadly, I won't see an Afghanistan that is safe and secure enough for log home building.

    Welcome home, George. While you are over there, we'll be right here with you.
    Every time I have strayed from the teachings of Skip Ellsworth it has cost me money.
