On October 11th, we headed down to Colorado to set up the logs for a stunning, western red cedar – post and beam log home. This home will boast the beautiful, unique log flares and diamond notched, full scribe building method. Not only does it have a stunning beauty, the many benefits of Western Red Cedar include that it’s a highly revered, durable wood is naturally resistant to rot, decay and insect attacks throughout the world. Almost anything you build with western red cedar will last longer and require less maintenance.
With the help of a crane and an awesome crew, we started laying out the logs and re building the structure, early morning on October 12th. The progress pictures show how smoothly the rebuild went and how gorgeous the weather held out for us. By Sunday morning we set the final wall logs and onto the roof! That’s only 3 days – There were lots of little parts and pieces but we got it all wrapped up. Can’t wait to see the finished results.
