Focus on Deck Building

This week we have been focused on the deck. You will see that on Mon-Wed the decking made great progress. The flashing was secured before the band board and the framing is held up by the temporary posts. On Wednesday we raised our first Cedar Post. No small task, but the crew sure knew what they were doing.

The cedar posts are notched to fit securely on the deck frame and support the weight of the deck.

  1. Been watching since the beginning. Thanks for sharing you journey. Your home is shaping up beautifully. I assume Mike is a contractor? He really knows his stuff. Maybe hope to see your home in person while renting one of your other cabins.

    Happy Easter.

    • Thanks Blake, Mike is not a contractor but had learned a lot about log home building in the last 6 years. We love the Blue Ridge way of building, the bulk of the construction is done before its delivered, then he can customize the house to our liking. If we can answer any questions jst let s know. Enjoy your Easter!
