Which brings me to the next image. Drum Roll please...the first ever taken from INSIDE the cabin!
As you can see the gaps between logs are wide.
My plan is to wedge smaller logs (sticks) into the gaps and seal them up with mortar. Below is a quick example of what I mean for illustrative purposes. I'll whittle them down to make a better fit before the mortar goes on.
Today I'm heading back into the woods to forage for some more dead trees. I need six more nine foot logs to finish up the walls.
In other news. Kent over on the Tiny House Blog posted an update I sent him. Thanks Kent! His blog is an incredible resource for ideas and examples of all sorts of construction methods and man does it make my Google analytics go wild when Kent posts an update. I had 193 visits to the blog the day Kent posted the story!
