The heat is brutal in the summer.
True words.  We have had people go into various stages of heat related distress in the summer heat, with one hitting the ground, me telling others they needed to get into their cars and start up the air conditioners, one guy that I made sit down on the spot because he really looked bad, etc.  
Although we and you and others are used to the heat, lots of folks aren't and can't take it during the mean days of summer.  We started putting our big floor fans out last week in the showroom for the customers to stand in front of, and now have a mini fridge with ice cold bottled water, free to any customer who wants it.  They use it too, because we went through a case of it just this last weekend.  I am now CPR and first aid certified.
From both a marketing and safety standpoint, the more comfortable the showroom, the more comfortable the customers.  We don't have air-conditioning in our place because of the big open doors, but many a day I've seen folks gravitate to the big floor fans and stand in the air flow in single file like a Conga Line.

Its HOT......sawing jobs have slowed a little due to the heat.....but I keep telling myself
"one more board".

I finally got the inside wall done at the entrance.
The bottom part is nothing more that the first cut off of the logs I sawed the board and baton from for the top. I sanded just the dirt and crude off them and kept the darker look.
A cedar gable vent at the top and I was done.

The outside lumber on the walls are now done to 13% MC. Next week it looks like
baton will be going up.

Sawing orders and working on the barn when I can.

Finally got the North wall pretty much finished.
Its built from 22 inch W I D E Poplar. The cracks have 5/8's baton which is kinda hard to see but its there. I made sure to caulk around all my windows inside and out.
The small trim right against the perimeter of the window is Cedar but the Windows are 
picture framed with stained Red Oak. 8 inch Poplar baseboard where the wall meets the floor.

Lots more to do.  :)

Wow.... love how you handled the cedar doorway!

That poplar wall is sooo pretty and those oak window trims are just "popping"!!!

Nice work!
