Hairy logs

Well, they MUST have been hairy, since The Husband had to shave them. 

Har-dee-har-har!   Just kidding.  The Husband had to shave the uneven areas of the joists on the second floor, as he is prepping for the laying of the floor.  He planed some of the logs where they join with other logs to make them flush.  (He actually said he was "planing the log joinery," but I had to ask for a paraphrase.)

Yes, you heard right:  The Husband said he was prepping for laying the floor upstairs.  Hallelujah!  Amen.

It was a beautiful day in the North Country today and we spent the whole afternoon up at The Lake.  Hubs' birthday lunch....  woodstove warmth...   cooking down pumpkins with my MIL...   and communing with my log house.   Ahhhhhh. 

And naps.  Definitely a good use of a Sunday afternoon.

Wow - Neat series of posts. A friend in Texas also has been working on a log cabin, so I've been thinking about it lately. So neat to see the process in process, but the raw logs turning into floors especially. (I always wondered how bows got straightened out.)
