Hey, and you did it with genuine hand-cut dovetails, exactly how we all do them on our small boxes… WITH A CHAINSAW!!! Very nicely done Mike.

Wow!! Building a cabin like this is a dream of mine…maybe one day!

How big is the cabin? The floor is really beautiful: What is it exactly?

Finally, what did you put in between the logs?

Cheers and again, awesome work!

that is awesome… did you have any previous experience building log homes before you built your home or did you just learn as you went? I have always been intrigued with log homes and hope to build one myself if things work out as planned.

OK, where is the essential Chic Sales with the half moon door, so you can be comfortable when the
snow is half past your elbows and that 30 point buck is peeking around the only big tree in miles.
Great looking little cabin, I guess the stair/ladder leads to a sleeping loft. Hope you enjoy many years
of use and generate many happy hunting stories around that stove. Thank you for sharing.

That is a great looking cabin. I like the merging of the logs and the timberframe porch. Well done.

This cabin is absolutely a beautiful thing to behold. I’ll make this a favorite.

Thank you for all the ego boosting comments. I love them. To answer a few of your questions: the flooring is tongue and groove pine with dark stain and fast drying poly. My wife and I live in a log home that we built 15 years ago. Building a log structure is easier than a stick structure.

Checkout my website for many more work-in-process photos. Thanks again everybody!
