Shed/Office (all slabbed lumber)

01-04-2014 04:16 AM by JohnnyMike | 3 comments »

We recently built a tractor shed/office building in the village where I live and work with the Hewa tribe. All the wood used for this project was from pine trees that we cut down and slabbed ourselves. The tin, though, we had to have flown in on a small, single prop Cessna. The shed is now used to house the small tractor and slasher that we use to keep our grass airstrip cut. The other side has two small 8’x8’ offices for me and my co-worker that we use for language study as we...

Monster Dog House #1: Foundation and Framing

07-28-2013 03:55 PM by milbert | 4 comments »

After 4 years I decided my boxer dog, Raiden, needed a friend. After it was decided that his new friend would be a mastiff that could be 3 times (!!) his size, it seemed like a good idea to build them a dog house in the yard that would be big enough for both of them. The project was started with some general dimensions in mind but from there was pretty much off the cuff. It is completed so I will do multiple posts as time permits to show the process. Foundation: 2-3 inches deep of g...

Building My Kids' Playhouse #8: Shingled the Roof - Now it's Done

04-07-2012 04:04 PM by Andy Panko | 3 comments »

Took me a couple of hours to put up the 30 pound roofing paper, and about half a day to do the shingles. I had never done shingles before, so I wasn’t sure how long it was going to take. I used just over three bundles of shingles, plus about a third of a bundle of ridge caps. I used Tamko’s Heritage 30 year architectural shingles – color is Natural Timber. Our house and shed were re-roofed in 2008 with these same shingles, so now every structure in my yard is visually ti...

Building My Kids' Playhouse #3: Site Preparation and Building the Floor

03-25-2012 12:12 AM by Andy Panko | 1 comment »

The playhouse is going to go in an unused corner of our yard. There is currently a little tree and a couple of bushes in that corner. I’m going to keep the tree and one bush, but relocate the other bush. All of the landscaping in that corner was put in new a few years ago. But the bush that is getting transplanted never really did well there. So maybe it will be better off somewhere else anyway. In an ideal world, I would have used poured concrete footings as the supports fo...

Building My Kids' Playhouse #2: Bought the Materials

03-24-2012 01:06 AM by Andy Panko | 2 comments »

I plan on starting the playhouse this weekend. I got all the lumber delivered today. Since the weather isn’t looking great for the next two days, I’ll probably just do a lot of measuring, marking and cutting of wood. I’m also going to try to prep the site where the playhouse will go. With the exception of paint, hinges, tar paper, LP smart trim and door latches, I have already purchased everything I need. I’m big on having lots of various size and finish fastene...

Platform Bed #1: Initial framing

02-01-2012 10:07 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 6 comments »

Bedroom and bathroom done. I’ll start the living room/kitchen remodel in the spring. What to do in the meantime? Make a bed of course.In my mind… which is where these things always are, the bed will be maple with two large drawers on one side. The head ends will have 3 small cubbies on each side as it is impractical for us to have bedside tables because one side is up against the wall and the other side edges a window. We basically need someplace to put our glasses and watches at ...

Hand forged Timber Framing tools, chisels and slicks

09-22-2011 11:19 AM by logjacob | 21 comments »

I and my friend (master blacksmith) made chisels and a slick for my upcoming Timber Framing project. He made the steel parts. I made handles and leather tip guards. In my opinion chisels and the slick came out very high quality. So the idea was born – to make my own Timber Framing hand tool workshop were we could manufacture high quality fully hand made tools. Maybe there are anyone who can give me some advice or some dealer/manager or craftsmen who are interested to take apart in my...

Blogging at "Eastern Thought" --by RusticWoodArt

Blogging at “Eastern Thought” ”Building the Timber Frame House” —by Ted Benson and Part 1 the Past, chapter 1; page 3….Ted writes; ”If Japanese carpentry was highly evolved, it was also fiercely competitive. The craft was developed within a family guild system that maintained tight security over construction techniques and strict authority concerning procedure among it’s members. Intense rivalry between the major guilds had the positive effect of keeping the sta...
