This is the view from the roof. Notice the other ridge just over the tree tops in the distance
It was a good day. Got the roof section framed, and gable logs lagged down and trimmed. Trimming the gables with a 385 Husky is no fun I'll tell ya! Tomorrow I'll tie in the small roof into the main one. That is a mini nightmare cause the ceilings will all be cathedral and everything has to be on the money, or the ceiling boards won't be level when applied later. Monday I'll board it up, and paper it all off then its sheet rock the shop yahooooo
Pictured below are the slash cuts that were done on the log ends in the dormers. These had to be done with a chainsaw
This is an inside shot of both dormers. You can see by going all the way to then end, it gives more floor space. The ceilings will remain cathedral, and you can see by the pic, the work involved with compound cuts on the rafters. I'll be glad when this is done!
All set for the winter. Got my barrel stove connected, and running. One morning it was 27 degrees and it took 1/2 hour to heat the place, and still need to insulate the ceilings yet, and seal around the garage doors. I didn't think that was too bad ;-)
Love my Logosol I used to mill the logs, and lumber. It was nice to work with 12" and 14" wide boards that would have cost a fortune if I had to buy them
I located a wholesale millwork and ordered these window sunbursts for the dormer windows. I'll spray both the window and sunburst forest green. Ought to add a nice touch. The sunbursts will have to be inset into the logs..........oh-oh I feel a new tool coming on :)
All done!.......well, roof closed in anyhow. Got the felt on just in time, cause we are now having our first snow/hail event. Still have to pop in some windows, but at least everything won't get soaked and the stove can dry the place out.
The next event will be to touch off that burn pile the first snow we get. You can also see two hemlock logs on the mill, waiting to get sliced up
