Cecil Stubbs replied to Joe Kocan's discussion Some advice on how to work with screw jacks in my home
"Hi Joe, after reading down and looking at all the photos I would say that the jacks have been let down by the previous owners.  As you let the jacks down to level out the 2nd floor the stairs (if not attached at the bottom) would slide forward…"

"Hi Dave, Don't know if you are looking for a GC or an experienced log home dry-in contractor, if the latter, feel free to give me a call 828-400-4505.  We travel anywhere in the continental US to erect log homes regardless of the…"

"Hi Denny, I know that this concept worked quite well in Western North Carolina prior to the market crash.  In fact, there are many log and timber communities in the area that consist of 3 acre or less parcels, the major selling points of course…"

"Lynn, depending on which GC and which Manufacturer you decide to go with, we would supply a bid for the log and timber labor.  We specialize in the dry-in labor having extensive knowledge of close to 30 different manufacturer's products,…"

Thanks Cecil, I would appreciate the contact information for those GCs you  recommend.  I also appreciate the other comments.  I have a list of about 7 questions that I'll be asking builders up front.  What exactly is your role in the building process?

 We've only met with one builder, it was at the site. Others have done it, but it's going to be difficult being so far from the land.  And we are in no hurry, at least 2 years down the road before I retire.

Good morning, Cecil.

I enjoyed the photos you posted. Very interesting construction. Well done. Did you cut your own logs?
