22 logs

Yesterday was the most productive day that Brian has had at the property. He averages about 10 logs each day; however, with help from Joe, Dad C. and Jeremy, they were able to lay 22 logs.The wall below received most of them. This side of the house only had about 2-3 courses on before this weekend.
Here is the view of the same wall from the inside. You are looking at our kitchen in this window.
Brian finally took a few minutes to sit and enjoy the progress he has made on the house yesterday. In the interim of not having help... he sat down for 10 minutes and just looked around. He commented on not remembering when courses 5- 6- and 7 went up. That is just how hard he has been working.

View from the road.

visiting the house this morning (I am at such peace there... I can picture myself sitting on the porch drinking tea and eating my breakfast... no more McDonald's for me every morning!)

I loved scrolling through your blog looking at the photos of your house going up. It brought back memories. My family built a Panabode home the summer I was 15. We pounded logs all summer long, following the plans, just like a jigsaw. So fun.
