Before and After part two - this is how Pitts looked when I got it. ..
But it hadn't been down long, so the logs were still in pretty good shape.
Note the boards instead of 'chinking' over the gaps.
Notch is called a 'dovetail' notch.
When most of these buildings were built, they were never intend on being permanent, so were not built high up off of the ground. So it is rare to find a cabin where all the sill logs are in great shape.
And if I am going to add any height, I usually start on the lower logs.
