Hand Hewn Log Cabin

Okay everyone, don’t get used to multiple posts a day. One a day is my regular schedule, but I have been so backed up and been hit with time related news that I have felt I should post more than one post a day. Please keep the stories coming just be patient with me getting them all out 🙂

Chris just let me know about this affordable hand hewn log cabin he found on Craigslist and I thought I should get it up while it was still available. This one is also in New York. You can view the Craigslist link here. I am really impressed with Bills quality of work and want to get in touch with him and learn more about his work. So I may have a post on him at sometime in the future.

Very reasonable price, especially considering the amount of time to build using adz and drawknife! Nice job, Bill!! You in NY should take advantage of this offer. What material did you use to chink? Is there insulation between the interior and exterior chinking?

    Thank you for the nice comments..fran i used 2 by 4’s to fill the gap the dovetail’s created..i also used some organic wool in places for chinking.. i will chink the outside in the spring with colored mortar…i wanted the cabin as organic as possible so i used no insulation in the (metal) roof or the floor.. i have a couple black walnut trees i am going to mill into 8 by 8’s and put on the inside after i adz them just for looks i think..i used full 2 by 8’s in place of insulation to see if that would work and it did…i doubt this would pass the energy codes but i can tell you this cabin holds the heat…of course white pine does have a high r-factor..at any rate this is a easy cabin to build and anyone could build this by finding some white pine trees and having a mill make cants for you..i do have a loader and a mini excavator and my own mill so it is easier for me but you could rent one to get your trees out of the wood’s

      Wool… great idea! Even in the south you can find someone who has a small flock of sheep.

It’s beautiful! All it needs is a place on Walden Pond.
