The Log Home Fiasco

Building a log home from scratch in a remote area, far beyond any decent roads, with only a chain saw and no electricity, is something everybody should try at least once.  The idea of single handedly lifting a 35 foot log 12 feet in the air, setting it down on the wall long enough to scribe it, bringing it back down to notch it, and then back up again to fit it into place, is a challenge to say the least.  If nothing else it is a great lesson in improvisation.  It sounded like a good idea at the time so what follows is a picture story we'll call, "Nell and Warren's Log Home Fiasco" or "The Twice-Built Log House."   Every step of the construction was first done wrong, taken apart and then done right.  That's the way it is when you're learning something new.  Enjoy the show.
