Log Walls, Beams and Decking

The basic configuration and log construction of both the Smith River and Lincoln cabins were the same, so Iv'e decided to only show one during this phase of construction.  These are photos of the Smith cabin going up.  I am using 6x8 inch double tongue and grove logs for the walls.  The posts and main support beams for both projects were selected and cut from the properties and hand peeled on site.  The roof decking is tongue and grove 2x6 fir.
In the last three photos you can see the grey stains we used on the Smith cabin to give it an authentic old montana cabin look.  The cabin is now ready to insulate and roof.
