Love this old logging camp cabin. . .


New find - log barn

While driving north, just south of Truxton Mo. I came across this log barn.

No one was home so I didn't get to explore it up close.

A nice old barn that was never built with any intention of it being more than it is.
The logs are still round and had never been hewn.
The gaps between the logs are very wide which would not allow for chinking, or at least it would be very hard to chink. Boards would have been used to cover the wide openings

Love the way the loof door is hanging.
Animals were still living in the barn and over the years have knocked many of the boards off of the front with their comings and goings.

The house on the site was very old also but had had to much remuddling to make a picture not worth while.

Although worn and well used, with the good rood that it has it will last many more years.

Kind of exciting. . . .

One of my photos is suppose to be in the book. Keep your fingers crossed.

Reserve your copy here.

I love this old photo. . .

Our next project out at the cabin. . .

I have several logs left over from an old house that will not go back together again the way it came down. So I have come up with a project for these now extra logs.

That's right, a log adirondack shelter.

 My logs are the hewn type that will require chinking between the logs.
 But in the end it should look something like one of these.
I like the way this front wall is finished. Mine are long enough to do something like this, or. . . .

. . . if I have enough, something like this!
