This board won't allow you to attach photos to a post. Instead, it requires that you specify the URL of the photo that is hosted elsewhere. Luckily, you can use the provided 'gallery' here on this board to make this happen.

When composing your post, you'll see a link below the text area that says, 'Click here to add Photos to post'. That will open a second window that will allow you to upload your photos to your gallery. The trick here is that you must create 'albums' and specify an album each time. Once uploaded, you should see a button that says, 'Insert image in post'. All this does is take you back to the other window and it pastes in the URL of the picture between IMG tags.

Alternatively, you can put in the tags yourself (click on the 'Insert Image' button in the tool bar) and just paste or type in the URL of the image you wish to share.

Hope this helps.

Kristingreen,

You are correct that users are not allowed to post photos directly in the posts here on the Forestry Forum.

You are in error when you state that the photos most be hosted "somewhere else" since the only allowable location for the photos is in the Gallery here at the Forestry Forum. 

This policy is to prevent the dreaded missing photo icon that you see on so many forums where somebody had linked to a photo at some place else such as photob*cket and then later removed the photo from that location...

Detailed instruction on photo uploading is provided at http://www.forestryforum.com/board/index.php/topic,61788.0.html

I'm not sure how different it is using a phone but it shouldn't be too hard since several users do it every day.

Good Luck!

Herb

For the SYP floor joist. On my camp build, that is what I used. Still have the front porch to build. Before putting the decking down, I plan on treating them. A mixture of one gallon of roofing tar mixed with a little over a half gallon of diesel, just paint it on. Don't get it on you, it will burn and of course it's messy. :D

The dryer the joist are, the more they will suck up the treatment.

Treelimber I think you have a great cabin started. You are doing what I am going to do to build a little house.  I have looked around on the net alot for someone building with squared logs like you are. I can find a little but not alot out there, or I am just missing it.  I was going to use poplar but I have been debating on pine. then I stumble on to what you are doing and I cant quit thinking about pine being what I want. I just got a sawmill a little over a month ago.  Woodmizer LT15. So I am new and learning. But all that aside I do love what you are doing.  I have never built with logs or anything like what I am thinking to do. I have done alot of framing but I can see this is a new learning experience.  Would love to send you a message and pick your brain a little. I think the pine I have is Pitch Pine and have been told it would make great construction lumber but I am not sure about using it as I am wanting to. Any thoughts anyone??  You have a great cabin and I hope you continue to add pictures to your gallery so I can watch your progress..Thanks for posting!

Any one know if I where just to stain wood or put linseed oil on the logs would this still allow them to dry? Don't want to trap moisture in logs by sealing them until there under 20% dry ... but I do want to go head and put something on them for looks and little protection

I came across your thread on the cabin build. 
When we did our roof we used plywood sheeting then used a ice and rain shield membrane,  then strapped with 1x to attach  the tin. This gives you a cold roof. It helps with keeping the bottom side of the tin dry from condensation. (Spray foamed the inside or underside of the roof)
The other issue we ran into was the shrinking of the logs width wise and being that they are screwed down can and did cause some gaps in the corners.(1/8+)

 . We did a dovetail and now it could not move in tighter. Perhaps yours was the same? Or did you insert the butt log into the pass log?
Nothing that a little caulking wouldn't fix. I liked your board and Barton, we are doing the same.
