The Garage has been started!

Framing from our own GREEN HARVESTED wood.

Date:

I know it is green harvested because I personally harvested every tree.  They are all naturally fallen trees that fell within a mile of our property (or on our property).

We will be picking up the metal roof in the morning (Tuesday June 15, 2010).  That means we will actually have a roof over the log mill in the next week or so!  How exciting!

Normally, one would sheet the building in plywood before putting on the siding.  In my case, I have a lot of scrap from my log mill so I am using that.  The siding will be applied over the diagonal pieces of wood.

The large opening on the front of the garage is temporary for the log mill use.  This way I can load logs in to the mill.  Once we are done milling, I will complete this front (and back) wall.

The last picture here show from the back side how the garage is over the excavation of the earth shelter house.  That is the cabin to the left.
