This is a photo of the dormer from inside our house that we are building. The home is 32×56 story and a half. Floored it is around 2600 sq. feet. living room is underneath this dormer and it is around 18ft x 17 ft. I will try and post more pics of it today. In the last picture, the flooriing is a mixture of ash,hickory,maple,beech,redoak,and whiteoak. It made a really nice looking floor.

More pictures, please! I can’t tell is it post and beam construction or square milled logs? Either way, it’s stunning!

Hey everyone….........this is all rough saw milled lumber…..except for the 2×6 tongue and groove that is on the ceiling…...we bought that and our hardwood flooring. When we were putting the roof on we had to roll the beams on metal pipe because they were way to heavy for us to lift. I would winch them up to my husband and he would nail them in place. When we were ready to put the tongue and groove on I sawed them and handed them to him and he nailed them down.

My “dream” house!
I was with my son a few days ago visiting a local museum and they had a similar treatment for interior surfaces…I love it! Beautiful work Woodchic -as always-!
This is a pic about that museum, “THe Coyote Point”
Cheers!

Ummmm, I am a G.C. and have built many multi-million dollar homes (I’m not trying to come off as bragging, I’m just saying it takes a lot for a home to really impress me anymore)....and all I can say is WOW! It Looks Great! I have never built a log cabin before but there is no doubt you are doing a wonderful job on this one. I’m with the others who have requested more pictures.
