    Is it easy to talk with the Forestry Department to purchase trees?

    I'm new here sorta and ready to build next year. I 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. Is it easy to talk with them?

    My experience over the last 30 years or so is that everyone with any clout in any of those darned agencies always ends up saying "Until a few years ago it was possible to get a "blah, blah, blah, suchandsuch" permit to get house logs but that doesn't fly anymore. Have you tried "Soandso Logging, out in Treeville"? I hear they are into some nice Lodgepole Pine."

    No kidding. That seemed to be how it was just after I took the class from Skip, and it is still that way. Over the years I have helped several folks (as well as myself) try to find some of those public logs but never had a bit of success here in sunny southern Oregon. I got the logs for our current place off of a Craigslist ad.

    Every time I have strayed from the teachings of Skip Ellsworth it has cost me money.

    This week:



    (I'm wearing my harness- I think 18' is past the limit where I want to risk a fall. 17' is fine, but not 18'. Falling from 18' is crazy talk).
    this is log #42, layer 11. I'm just finishing #43. I think we only have 3 layers left on our walls.

    And like everyone says- just about the time you become an expert on the part of the build you are working on (and get really sick of it), is when you are finished with that part.
