Construction

Recently some friends and I poured concrete piers to begin building a cabin in the woods, and yesterday we installed the floor joists. I learned something: the 4'x8' tongue-in-groove OSB sheets cover only 3' 47.5" in the shorter direction. The wood framing for this project is from three trees harvested from the local property in Harrison County, Ohio. In the 1900's it was a cattle farm owned by Asher Latham.

Today we covered the porch framing with flooring and built and erected the four walls. This is rather easy when the 2'x4's are of uniform size, but our lumber was rough sawn on premises and warped from drying without benefit of a kiln. This called for creative carpentry. We have electricity; running water sure would make life easier. More to follow.
