    Congratulations! Every new anklebiter is a blessing! Now take the class... you can wait as long as you want to build but the sooner you take the class, the sooner you'll be truly on the road.



    Can't wait to get you on the other side.
    And you thought he was unteachable!

    Big news today!
    The lady is Pregnant! For 10 years we’ve been trying, had given up, and then now out of the blue we’re expecting.
    My motivation level is through the roof, I just wish there were more build threads/ blogs to follow on this side. With my company I’m obsessed with details so I understand and make correct decisions so we can push forward.
    I thank everybody on here
    Esp the current builders who do post on this side, we are hungry for info and all are trying to self educate to make the class that much more understandable.

    There’s a few online blogs of builds but not too many, I will keep trying to educate myself until next year I can take the course!
    Congrats on the pregnancy- it will change everything. I was a lurker for years. I'm writing about our build experience [see link below] because I had the same questions- couldn't see how it was possible that LHBA could be done, but we're doing it. Here's a video my wife helped me make of stacking one log (because I always wanted to see this as a noob, too). Only thing it doesn't show is cutting and peeling the log. And it doesn't show the log falling after it slipped out of the strap (but I posted that separately on my same channel- it's cool to watch a 5,000 lb log hit the dirt).

    Those milled logs are pretty. Are they "cultured" logs? ;-)

    [QUOTE=loghousenut;142087]I settled on Imgur. I am pleased. Nice to have a web photo site whose name I can pronounce.

    Yeah, Imgur is the best right now.

    I remember way back when I used flickr, then that site kind of fell out of favor as the "it" photosharing site. Then it was Photobucket, same deal, fell out of favor and had an annoying habit of breaking links to photos. Imgur is the best right now, though there latest update seemed to make it harder to manage albums...

    Bumping my post for progress. Up to 5 courses now. If you're curious, my build is a 30x30 LHBA plans built on 4' stem wall. The logs pictures are about 15" to 16" butts and 13-14 tops. See pic:
