Cabin Building Day 3
12/29/10

Heat wave today, warmed up to -13. Hauled the mill up on the sled. Went very well tracked right on the trail, a person could transport the mill fully put together a long way if bolted to a wooden platform in a sled. Next step is to clear off a place on the ice to put the mill and start cutting timbers for leveling the foundation. Will tackle after the new year.

Cabin Building Day 2
12/28/10

-24 today, was able to get trees cleared and beams put in place. Going to need to haul m5 up on sled during the next couple of days. Ground is not as level as I thought, so I will need to make some 6x6 blocks to get all the foundation beams level with each other above ground. Found the highest corner and will level there up to it to avoid having to dig in the permafrost.

Be sure to check back next Thursday for Part 3!
