Like many have said, one of the greatest threads I have ever seen on the GS! I'm sitting here thinking about how neat it would be to have a presentation of the build set to music to show my land buyers. That's one of the most difficult things to accomplish, creating a vision of what type of home they want with the acreage I'm selling to them.

Very good thread and following...

They run the wiring for exterior walls through as they lay courses of logs and through window and door frames as well.

Got most of the upstairs framed in. Going to finish that, hang roof decking, and pour footings for the porches.




There is the back of the gable dormer. Bathroom side



Here is the fireplace wall. Gable glass is framed out



Front of the gable dormer. Bedroom side. Balcony door is framed



View of the whole front



Upstairs is mostly framed. That's where the bathroom and closet will be



Toward the bedroom and balcony door



Inside of gable glass on fireplace wall



South side of the house

Ok so the ground where we poured was so Saturated with water that the holes dug for the porch posts would fill up with groundwater as soon as you pumped them out with a sump pump. We've been doing this for 8 days now, and have also been draining our ditches with a 3" pump as well. Waiting for the ground to dry is simply not an option for Satterwhite since it will take several weeks if not months for the ground to totally dry out, so they were just going to pour like normal anyway and hope for the best. They didn't have any better ideas, so I thought of my own way to do the porch posts. They said they would probably settle afterward and we would have to have someone come out with a jack and jack them up and put shims underneath the posts to re level the porches. I wasn't good with that so I thought of my own way to do this.



That is 1" all thread rod with a 2x10x1/4" thick piece of steel. I made an anchor bolt with it. I've been mounted a steel plate to fit the 4 x 6 porch posts on the bottom and attached it with lag bolts. I then drilled I wanted hole in the middle of the porch post to accommodate the anchor bolt. The plate also had a hold to accommodate as well. As you can see the all thread has a washer and nut on them. That is what the porch post with the plate on it will sit on for the porches. If the porches ever need to be adjusted up or down, there is enough room inside the porch post to take a large wrench and adjust accordingly with that nut. I know it was overkill but I wanted to make sure if I need to do anything later on it would be easy and less costly than having someone come out with Jack and do everything.

Here is a pic of them installing the porch post components.

Porch bases will be done today!! The part everyone was dreading the most is over. And I think we found a solution for settling if it ever happens.

Thanks. I didn't like the idea of jacking up the porches later on if the need arose.
