    I had totally forgotten about this side of the forum since I became a member last year.

    One of my biggest reasons to post on here is get questions answered and to get motivation from all the great encouragement from everyone. Really helps when the gas tank is empty.

    Big accomplishment today...got roof covered for winter. Gonna go hibernate for a while

    Guess it is about time I tossed some pictures in-
    My wife and I went thru the class years ago after our place burned up.
    Up until that point our total building experience was- one chicken coop and a dog house.
    The class was life changing.
    Now let me see if I can get these pictures to post.
    Unfortunately there is a lot of crap - vehicles etc stick in these. But you should be able to see the house if you can get past the clutter.

    Oh yea- I was should post a picture of how much it settled after ten years..( zero ) nada. So there are no pictures.
    I will say we noticed a smidgen of shrinkage - like maybe 1/8" - in diameter- not to be confused with settling.
    So where I had scribed drywall to fit tight against the contour of the logs in the down stairs bathroom eventually a small gap (very small) was exposed.
    Fixed by stapling rope around the edges.

    I can't emphasize the importance of this class enough.
    I realize this is a picture thread so I don't want to wreck the flow.

    If you'da built at a more conservative pace, those scribed cuts would have stayed tight.

    Great looking log house.

    Fine. Inside, the stairs follow the roofline up. Every thing seems bigger, with the upstairs half loft separated by a railing from the down stairs and surrounded by glass (and sliding glass doors--to a deck) on the high side. Btw, I'll be out (for my final trip next year, I forget where you are from, but you and any other readers are welcome to come by when I'm there.

    I coulda sworn last year was your final trip out. That's OK. Have as many final trips as you want. The more the merrier.

    We are doing a trip on Route 66 from LA to Chicago this next summer (Route 66 when we are 66). Plan to make it to your place again if it works into the map and schedule.

    If not, maybe we'll meet up at cousin Tom's place or your place in Ohio, or Iowa or. wherevrnell you finally settled down at. Hug your Mom for me... She"sa peach.
