The gravel has been filled into the garage foundation and is ready now for the subfloor in the rear of the garage to frame the back bedroom and the garage structure itself. Nate and Larry alone this week making it happen.
The crackerjack team spent the entire day lifting and securing into place the main support structure for the roof. They did it the old fashioned way with leverage , knowhow, and muscle. Great job Men!
As this evening closes, Pete , Nate , and Larry rest themselves proud of their achievement today. Roof framing is started and now you can see the outline of the main cabin taking shape.
Another epic drama of courage, strength, and teamwork! Brought to you by Roaring Brook Log Homes. Please enjoy!
Looks like a few rows of logs went up today thanks to Larry and Pete! The logs are beautiful ! They are milled by Beaver Mountain in NY. North Eastern White Pine with an 8 inch high and 10 inch wide profile. Thermal mass in Log homes exceed R value insulation for retaining heat making them one of the best passive solar design material you can use!
The Advantech sheathing is installed onto the subfloor joists as well as temp power panel ready for inspection.

Moisture prevention for the foundation is an all important step to ensure a trouble free foundation. Pete laid out the perforated drain tile and then cover it with gravel to filter the ground water and divert it away from the foundation.
Thanks to Larry’s untiring efforts today and a big hand from Pete, the subfloor joist support is almost completed. Advantech here we come……. and then log stacking can begin!
