    Be safe over there!

    Hi everybody!

    My fiancee and I also just completed the log home class last weekend. The plan for this year is to complete our current home reno (located about an hour outside of Philly), get this house on the market, get married and get as many supplies and resources as we can. [We're those weird people who will be registering for building materials and tools- who really needs fancy plates anyway??]

    By next year, we plan to have our forever property in eastern WV, start dropping some trees and begin our build! We're looking forward to following along with all of you!

    Best,
    Lauren & Jeff

    We did the same, asked everyone to donate to our tool fund instead of plates and toasters etc.

    Welcome LaurenW, we live in Indiana and have extended family in Hinton, WV. We are beginning the process as well...but with 40 years of marriage (in May) so no gift lists to be filled Look forward to watching your home come together.

    Hi Steve,
    My name is David and I have been interested in building my own log cabin. I want to cut my own logs. My question is how do you get past the building codes of graded or rated logs by engineering?

    <mudflap shivers>. cutting your own logs is one of the most dangerous things you can do as a non-professional builder. That said, it's a great way to get logs for cheap, and that's how we did our build. You have to have just the right amount of crazy to do it. The next most scariest thing is riding your ridgepole while cutting notches in it with a chainsaw to level your rafters. Glad that stuff is behind me. Welcome aboard!
