Cabin Gables are Up and Big Trees Cut
Made some good progress last weekend. This post is late. My friend Cam came out and helped us cut down some trees in front of the cabin. It improved our view of Hood Canal and gave us some more light for the soon to be moved solar panels. 9 trees made a huge difference! When they were down I realized that they were over 100′ tall. Douglas firs.
While Cam and I were logging Nate and Aaron were up in the loft framing the pony wall that boosts our ceiling height. Also they managed to get 3 gable ends framed up. The first one took 3 tries I think. The window openings are final yet, we still don’t have windows anyway. They are 2×4′ now and I think the windows should be 2×3′. Back to craigslist for some used windows. It’s easier to find really big windows than small ones.
Anyway I’ll be back up there Memorial Day weekend for some Clamming, Oyster hunting and fishing… More playing this time! Also I borrowed a snatch block to try to get some of those trees out of the forest. Stay tuned…
