Beginning to peel this "first cut" Birch slab from our sawmill.

Unfinished birch, cottonwood & spruce.

A late season build, a timber frame carport. Got as far as the rafters set before the snow put a halt to the roof going on. Waiting for a dry clear day to finish it off.

12′ x 21′ carport.

Today we started standing walls. Got 3 done. Tomorrow will be finishing framing and sheeting then trusses will be delivered at noon.

Let me just brag a little on the beautiful weather we’ve had the last two days. So nice. Alaska tan coming my way, right before the rain. โ˜”



No rest for the weary. Finished one cabin yesterday and rolled into the new job site this morning. This is a 12′ x 24′ cabin, dry in only. (No interior or finish work!!)

We spent half a day gathering supplies. The rest of the day we set our paver/pier foundation & brackets.

Ready for the floor system.

Then we sized our rough sawn beams and set them into place. Leveled and squared them and cut our rim joist and laid out our joist placement.

Time flies when you’re having fun. Time to clean up and stow our tools. Monday we will knock out the floor joists and blocking. Hopefully getting some sheeting down for the floor too.
