Building a Cabin in Alaska Wilderness with the Logosol M5 Chainsaw Mill: Day 10

Cabin Building Day 10


Stayed the night at the building site in the Arctic Oven tent, temp dropped to -28 in the middle of the night. Didn't get as much done on the walls but was able to haul in a couple of trees. Got some more corner posts made along with some 2x4's and 1x7's. If the temp goes back up, planning on going back out Sunday and put up at least one more wall.

Camping out in Arctic Oven tent with woods stove, keeps thing toasty warm at -28.

The above log was the first one that was too big for me to cut with my 16" bar, had it loaded on the mill with the log lifts all the way down and still could not make a pass with the 16" bar. Have a 20" bar coming in the mail to take care of this one. Never thought I would max out the bar with an interior Alaska Spruce, but its possible.

Be sure to check back next Thursday for Part 11!
