The time will soon be here my Kinsman when we will no longer have the pleasure of living in these modular cookie cutter housing units "If you can call living like factory hens pleasurable" therefore It is integral to our survival as a folk and religion to be able to have shelter and comfort when the SHTF and when we settle our new territory much like our ancestors did when they began the colonies oh so many years ago, there blood flows in your veins, we can do this because our ancestors did it!
This thread is being made as a thread to post Cabin construction information, by Cabin I mean hand hewn logs, not kits or log siding or any of the other straps laid out for you by companies who sale so called cabins.
In this thread we will go over the various types of notches, log tree species, different types of construction and assembly of logs, as well as other types of chinking and sealants, not to mention minor masonry of chimneys, floors, etc. as well as types of roofing and shingling systems that can all be gotten off the land and not bought in system stores. Also in this thread it would be appropriate to include post and beam as well as other types of wood traditional building systems and styles.
I look forward to writing my post and I look forward to seeing your contributions as well!
