Pine log cabin
« on: August 27, 2006, 03:50:00 PM »
javascript:selectThis('preSpan1')


I'm kinda new here and this is my first attempt at pictures

I have this stand (thicket) of small pine trees that needed thinning real bad. Trees had just about stopped growin at 9 - 10 inches diam. My grandson had been buggin me to build him a log cabin for a bunkhouse at a hunting camp. The logs were all processed on my old LT40 woodmizer. The ends were notched on the mill to get them all the same. The inside of each log is slabbed off, making a smooth inside wall. Top and bottom of each log slabbed off to make them all the same thickness. The floor will be wide pine planks.

Howdy Pineywoods,

   Welcome to the Forum. I guess we're neighbors. I'm over by Shreveport/Bossier City. Where abouts are you? Great looking cabin you have there.  :)

Update on the cabin. It's been a while. We dismantled the building and hauled it 175 miles to a hunting camp in central Mississippi, where it lay in a pile until recently. Here's a pic of it re-assembled in it's final location. Porch and roofing metal due to be installed this weekend. 1X4 oak for flooring is ready to come out of the kiln. Door and windows are in my shop. The long delay was due to having to drop everything else while we built a road and a bridge.

Piney,
Do you have a close up of the corners and interior?

That is awesome, Pineywoods 8).  I would really like to have one of those.  I like the way you prepared and joined the logs.  Nothing like having a sawmill ;D

progress is slow but steady. Here's the metal roof in place and joists for the porch. Inside sub-floor is done. When the roof is finished, we'll install the flooring, 3 inch oak tongue and groove inside, 3 inch oiled pine on the porch.

Nice looking place you got going there!

I have a customer here who wants me to saw out a log cabin kit on my mill.

What is the depth (front-to-back) and the height of you logs when finished?

Thanks;

Chuck, I had a source of logs that were all just about 10 inch diameter. Cut 2 inches off one side, flip it 180 degrees and take off another 2 inches, flip 90 degrees and take off 4 inches, leaving a 6X6 with one round side. The key to getting a good fit is to notch the ends with your mill so they are all the same. We still don't have the porch built, but slowly making some progress.

pineywoods
Thanks for the info.

Now all I have to do is figure out an "hourly" rate.
Can't rightfully go with board footage.

Thanks for posting those pictures.
I'll have to print them off and use them as the project progresses.

Latest update on the cabin. It" starting to look like a redneck hunting camp.

 



Still have hardwood floors to install, then door and windows...

At long last, it's about finished. Here's latest pics. Oak floor installed last weekend, along with shutters and door. I'm sure the daughter-in-law will want some matching furnishings, but the basic cabin is done. The oak for the floor was cut on my mill, dried in my solar kiln,  planed on my woodmaster 718 and finished on my tiwanese shaper. Laid down over pine sub-floor with a vapor barrier between. I didn't build the rocking chairs, but I'm sure looking forward to using one of them a bit. The shootin arn laid across the left hand rocker is a rare one, double barreled 410 gauge.

Pineywoods, nice job.  The cabin looks super.   Most folks would love to have a floor like that in their house.
