  2. Past time for the first blog post!

    A little late on starting our blog, but better late than never, right? My husband, Shawn, and I have dreamed of living in a log home since we can both remember! As children, we dreamed of that lakeside cabin out in the sticks. Never did we think it would be built by our own hands though. We are excited to start this journey, and so glad that we are going to be able to do so with the support of such a great family as the LHBA!

    As of right now, we are planning a simple 30x30 cabin ...
  3. I messed up

    Hi guys-
    new blog post- I messed up the paint marks for my pier foundation, so I wrote about it. It's my first pony ride, so be nice. got our water and power. I'll be leveling holes tomorrow, maybe get the piers in place. Maybe inspected next week, and then pour concrete?

    I keep telling myself I'm going to keep this blog current. Then the logs arrived and all my priorities went out the window. I finally started a build thread on the forum for the progress updates and to ask questions, but there's so much more that I don't want to flood the forum with but someone might find useful that I'll try and post it here. I'll try not to redo the stuff on the build thread but it all gets blurry after a while.

    So the logs finally arrived ...
