Cabin Building Day 11


After not being able to go out for two weeks (temps in the -40's F) on the weekend, finally got out this weekend. Two plus feet of fresh snow so I spend most of my time digging things out and getting stuck pulling logs to the mill. Was able to get the rest of the wall beams cut and some of the walls studs for the last two walls. Planning on getting the walls finished up next weekend if its not -40!

Logging in 4' of snow, mad felling skills on the right tree, should have been a field goal kicker J

1st tree loaded up ready to head to the mill, got stuck 12 times on the way (1/4 mile), with a 24" superwide track!!!! If its not -40 its 4' of powder. Warn winch got its workout today.

Snow around floor deck, lumber for last two walls.
