I'm still reflecting on my log cabin construction memories from a year ago! My biggest memory was of all the snow and the poor crew shoveling constantly. In the beginning they had to build a bonfire to keep warm until they could get the heat installed. We have a full log home but put a half log wall on the lake side to provide extra insulation due to all the windows on this wall and the inevitable cold that would blow up from the lake. Here are some photos from when the crew was working on the interior:
Here we were still waiting on the windows to be delivered.

Our log staircase was installed. It's one of my most favorite items in our log home.
I'm probably sitting here cuz none of the construction crew will let me use their tools and help. Ha! Ha!
I think I could climb that scaffolding....

Our view from the master bedroom.
Randy our GC and builder is a big guy - about 6"4. It was amazing to us how he could swing around so easily on the scaffolding and reach those touch spots. I'm pretty sure he could carry a tree with one hand. Seriously!
Our maple hardwood floor that our builder got a good deal for us on. He had all the right connections.
My Loon bathroom which is located in the basement.
6 panel doors in the bedrooms.
I'll post the last of these tomorrow. I hope you enjoyed looking back with me!
