Historic log buildings — tell me your story!

Last night, I went to an Altan concert at Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts in nearby Vienna, Virginia. The concert was phenomenal — Altan is the world's preeminent traditional Irish music group, and between Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh's pure soprano and the entire band's incredible talents on the fiddle, guitar, accordion and bouzouki, it was one of those rare experiences where the music seems to become much more than the sum of each of the players' individual contributions.

Attended the March, 2010, Log and Timber Show in Orlando, Fl

My wife and I attended the show on Saturday after delaying from going Friday. I think we would have needed a canoe to get there on Friday due to the storm that hit. The show itself was much smaller then in the past but that was to be expected due to the economy. All the top builders were there and very friendly in their nicely laidout booths. They were all quite busy as might have been expected from the problems on Friday.

We spent a lot of time with one builder that we were…

Benefits of Log Homes Over Traditionally Framed Homes

Gone are the days when the term log homes conjured up images of small, single-room houses built off the beaten track for those who wanted to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Today,

regular basis. They may be more expensive than traditional homes and

Where to begin? Winter!!

Well, where do we begin?

I guess we'll just say winter came. After a wonderful fall which we got a great start on things, winter came just a little too quick. Add to the mix a couple of bouts of pneumonia for both of us and a little OT at work dealing with the snow, and here we are in March. We did make a…

Deconstructing the kitchen

With the outlines of the lower bathroom finished, Mr. Seals has turned

his attention to the kitchen, which is being installed on the upper

level in a former bedroom. Gabriel cleared the room out and Mr. Seals

moved in with his wrecking bar. What he found was not pleasant. The

joists were fashioned from logs that had been roughly hewn, and of

different sizes, making for an uneven floor. What was worse was the

rotting wood along the edges used to support the… Continue
