Coming to SMALL this year?
I'd say it's a 50-50 chance, I'm building a cabin on my rural property and want it closed up to the point of being able to do finished carpentry over the next winter. We're busy at work so it will be the odd weekend that I go up, but I have a lot of help available to get it done. I'll know more in the spring as I'll be digging the pylons as soon as the ground thaws.
I really want to be there.....
Get that cabin done, then go play..!
I ran across a real old book that shows how logs were converted to squared off beams with nothing more than broad axes. They would soak string in berry juice, snap a line the length of the log, then chop a series of kerfs the length of the log..then break the kerfs off.
They must have been using birch or poplar..evergreens would be too gnarly.
They must also have burned 6000 calories a day...imagine some vegetarian tree hugger keeping up with that pace.
