Cold, sunny days are great for construction. If we could just hold the precipitation off until the end of January, the shell of our log home would be complete and under roof.This week the logs for the first floor are finished. On Friday, after New Years Day, a crane will arrive to lift the beams into place. These beams will hold up the second floor loft.....and the main beams are HUGE! You can see the cut outs on the top logs for the ceiling beams.
