I recently attended training for the new log home company I joined - Expedition Log Homes. One of my favorite parts of the trip was seeing the logs prepared at the mill. I'm a log junkie so it would be like a candy junkie being locked in a Hershey's chocolate plant!
Check out these beautiful pine logs....
I really wished someone would've let me drive this truck! I would've been cornering on rails at 80 mph! (Just kidding!)
This is our new dealer group watching the logs being loaded to be debarked.
Pine log being debarked.
These are half logs being prepared. (Expedition offers full log and half log homes.) I wish someone would've let me operate this machine..... (I'm sure my hubby warned them all ahead of time. Don't let my crazy wife near big vehicles or complex machinery!)
This crew is working hard with a draw knife (all done by hand) on the logs to give them that handcrafted style. I would've wimped out after the first pull with the knife!
On the off chance some of my new friends from Expedition are reading this - thank you for the fellowship and thank you for sharing your knowledge and experience!
