Our log cabin build is coming along nicely! We're hoping to get a bit more time out on the farm and river before too long.
Soon we'll be washing the logs with a salt brine so that we can scrub away the mold that formed during the seasoning process. This should also help protect against insects.
TCOP/Litefighter comparison and our next installment in the Back to the Basics: Tarp video coming soon!
But what about the large gaps>
We've had some comment concerning the size of the gaps we have between each log course. Some say that's too large and that the logs need to be closer together. Ideally? They should be. But, that's not how God gave us these logs, we only have a small number of usable logs to work with. And that's just what we're doing!
How are you going to fill those gaps?
We're going to use mesh and mortar between the logs along with insulation.
